We we know a lot of the stories of the of the responders and house sick many of them have gotten. The the morning by the family members but there's some stories. That have been kind of bubbling underneath the surface that really haven't been killed in two. And that's some of the psychological trauma that some people went through it in and you know about this stuff. Sheer only because I had so many friends down on Wall Street and you know and and we did buried eight people that we know. Between brother. And from high school. And a month ago.
