1:47 pm
there's no one solution to the issue. so just trying to create new new laws isn't gonna stop us from, you know, from filling what, what we're going to guess we have to violence, sherwood but we don't have training or 3rd damage. so actually we got about maybe 2025 kids that will be there for so we're going to do the icebreaker ah, in the class once. that's why everything gathered during the rest of the thank me. my name is carla pittman. i'm the co founder of the kids, my city angle born and raised cover all my life. the far below going today is
1:48 pm
basically in the cloud of neighborhood that we come from. france, a lot of violence, a lot of students happening sometimes. unfortunately, young people are around to see those things. again, people are victims of those things happening it's o b, a k, not community. because a lot of times we ought to 1st find that i say ambulance out of 1st responders. what a lot of times a friend or family member, brother or sister is there was something tragic happens and what do you do in that situation? so my 1st question is how long do you think it would take to get sort of thing that i had the day he's bigger, what i was guy answered with. okay, so the estimate around chance went bad at 30 minutes. i know how much blood is in a human body. okay. so is that
1:49 pm
4.5 liter was is about one m c a visually this to pop 2 liter. so how long do you think it takes 1st of lead up. ok, well yes, i've been asking some ladies in the back. yeah. can guess they can be wrong is ok. ok. anybody up? yes i so on average it takes the present dust 7 minutes of lead up. depending on where they got hit a water was hit, it could take one men. so if it takes the am blessed, 2530 minutes in predominate lack of brown communities. and it takes a human being 7 minutes of lead out. by the time they get that they already bled out to death. so this like this trend is implant, cuz this is with like that. we need our people that are around us to be our health . somebody who stays in my life is not guarantee that you can say that prices like but for you doing something for you trying to death, you can. i've lost
1:50 pm
a lot of people my life and i see father know this trend. the company years ago, i parked the space in my life was, i've seen a lot of people killed the fun, like carlia said, was that person is hit, the clock is ticking. there are ready bleeding. so back to the oppressive you had to perform sleep. you are. all right, so, well yeah, i arrest. there's 2 sides. you can be, look underneath your pinky. you can look underneath your thumb. if it's underneath your neck is only there, 10 bar. and if you move down was the lie, daniel, throw you for them. they're a little lower behind me. you can check it's a different place because sometimes of the risk is a hard sugary spot to find a path. after you find a path one start form in the compression just recently had a death in april 15th, my brother edward passed away. he was sent in from buddhist, they'll have names and we can pick and choose, you know, just gotta learn how to deal with the situation. i know
1:51 pm
a lot of people still like it will get better. he is in a really doesn't you just you, you learn how to do the situation better is and every day the people have lost the gown, violence. i how we can count on of my hands and more. so it will be a lot from your name people, alaska, from various ages as of to like 7 to like 35, you know, i've lost people back to back in the same year. and then now there's like i just expect a little somebody and i just, you know, i try to keep my head up, you know, and just for the best, like, it's kind of just now become normal with paul. so he ok, so he, unconscious. he does have a post. and the next thing you do is start pumping for
1:52 pm
a blood all over in the 1st ad. no, it's not normal. like, you know, something happened because it's not supposed to be like when you hear gunshots, you're supposed to be scared, is supposed to want to call the cops. you know, when someone dies is, is supposed to be very high breaking. but and one from the lab will be like, we're going to size the kids, they'll play like a so player by we still in spanish enjoying our time, you know, and just because they just normalized like it had so often that people use it as if like oh, i just got a screw up on me. i can. it was just nothing. oh, i heard those this joke. someone told one time. they said that chicago is the only place where a young person can be dodging bullets on the way to school and still get mark
1:53 pm
tardy and get a detention when they get to school for being late as finally what it was. so it was so serious like, it wasn't like a ha ha funny. it was like a that's messed up because i believe it kind of thing and they get to school and, and don't even talk about what happened on the way there. so i think that it's, it's a skill that coping mechanism is a skill understanding how these things are so serious and, and just just being able to walk through everyday like never happen. i there so much, never mind can go there before i even make it to school in the morning. we also somebody to talk about it with what we don't have and we don't have a word. yeah. but we do have the resolution. oh, and then i have with we can use that affects every minority population, every vulnerable population in america,
1:54 pm
and because of that intersection and how, how much it affect many different people on so many different ribs of people who've been able to build a really strong coalition and also reach out to all of those young people to recognize that one day they inevitably will become impacted by gun violence. violence isn't just and violence and violence is systemic. you know, issues that stomach racism, sexism, it's about, you know, the populace is about voting rights. it's about, you know, l g, b, t q, right? it's about the right to walk down the street and walk to class and not have to be afraid of a stray bullet hitting you and killing you or your friend or your brother, whoever it is. and it's about the right to have a future. hey, give a minute. you said you be coming, you're going into the meeting at 2. i'll give you a text. thanks my experiment. with
1:55 pm
the fact that we're kids is our biggest strength and our biggest weakness. definitely the fact that we are young people and that we do have such a strong moral compass and feel things so fiercely and so quickly and act on it, we're not afraid to speak up. has always been our strongest, has always been a thing that has made us different. we're not afraid to take those strong chance stances and to call people out here in dc. we have students going to congress literally every single day and lobby is members of congress. like we have 10 minutes with blue. when i started, i had death threats. when i started, i had people, you know,
1:56 pm
pushing me down. the thing i didn't do at that point was stop, i continue to push forward. i got my friends together and we went back, i got more friends together. we went back again. and that's what it takes. it takes the realization that these adults, these people who are older than me don't know it, they don't know what's going on because what's going on right now isn't okay. and then the ones that a reason that it's still this way, ah ah ah,
