And locally. Well we are unfortunately seeing an uptick in the number actual results. For people who were the other demographics the age group of antennae boarding. You know can I just heard of the other day with with after hearing about Kate Spade that. And she was one of 45000 Americans to die annually by suicide why does it get so little attention. Except when it happens to a celebrity. Well it gets little attention for all of those generally vote 45000 Dutch years is that there's very etched in history. But one it's a tragedy. For every scrambling for every large forever armored. Somewhat and guerrilla but it by taking. Its just an absolute threat the program loves that Kirchner. The family there aren't there coworkers neighbors. Everyone who's connected to that person so. We had 45000 tragedies in the past year. And I guess or anything good can come from. The insurance it was hard courts this week is with those trying to spotlight on orders Eddie problem. And a terrible situation for many many people all across our country and unfortunately here in western north.
