To a point where you can move on in life and it's just tragic it was senseless. And did it was demonic and in my opinion and it's just that's been a difficult time that I think it's also been inspiring for people because they realize. How everybody in this community and around the country have come together. In support and the intent that they. Or glad that you brought that up because here in San Diego we had many people who attended that route 91 harvest festival in many people have friends and family who were there and we all. Wanted to do something. So we did an impromptu get together about 500 of us early on a Thursday morning in an empty arena parking lots. He and we've formed a human peace sign it. As a symbol of our solidarity. And thoughts and prayers are with you and then we had a drone take a picture of the peace sign. Cruel and it looks really cool. I can't wait to see it.

I will make sure we shall it it's City Council and get it out to the mediate here. Because it knows the defense activities that everybody really wants to. Do something physical.

A city it's not associated with the what we saw. Last month. Why how hard is it was it is it still for you to lead. And and Nelson be human being about this whole thing I mean people are looking to use a guy does take a somewhere but you're also someone is like. What's happened to my city is going to be very difficult to do your job right now. You know John I think. I think what's coming out of that goes what can we be doing to make sure this doesn't happen again you can't just let it. Just be act itself added to value. You have to learn from that you have to make light to battery you have to have made the sacrifices that these poor innocent people. Happen value that's gonna change and change for the better. And that's what we're about is a very different time and we. Need to make sure that we are as well aware of what's going not around to ask him when people are showing signs of real. Problems he would need to say something you know they'd they'd law enforcement says see something say something. And so what do we learn what we did learn of what we continue to learn is where bonds gets strong people and we will not be defined by eight if you cooler full of hate and anger these are individual perpetrators. And we just need to know that they don't define who the United States of America. It and they do not define who leaked one of those is good law abiding caring involved people. Who love our freedom and love this country they will not take over who and what we are.
