an engagement equals the trail. when so many find themselves worlds apart, we choose to look for common ground. ah ah, the unique thing about marsh for our lives is that he, the adults are afraid of us. quite frankly. members of congress are very afraid of us. and that's something we know, and we definitely use to our advantage. we're able to get meetings with people who quite literally will never vote in favor of any gun battles from edgen bill. they're afraid to not be with us because i don't want to see what would happen if we were to call them out or not taking our meeting, but

a $187.00 total instances. 38 deaths 93 injuries. and then 15 teenagers killed or injured 3 children 0. so a we go into these rooms with the sanchez and with these house members. and they'd be surprised because we were these young faces who had experience to come out and start myself my friends and bring them into those rooms. suddenly the senators didn't have the same kind of talking points which they normally had. they couldn't just shout us down with so i don't know foreign talk to you or how i've seen that and seeing that young people can really affect that really just showed me that across issues across spaces, across the nation. we need young people to be able to stand up and actually make

4:33 pm
i lose a father big brother. i'm that i'm that figure, that bags a voice that they might not be getting in between like, but the average is and the end of a lot of my time. but again, people, whether it's taking them to go eat, going to play basketball, they come to my house, they play games, they also, i educate them and you know, bring them together around issues that are affecting them in that community.
4:34 pm

4:35 pm
sure, definitely. connect it to a size of the same coin, i think in order for you to see real change there to it takes building that relationship there, different levels of relationship that they have to occur when you're trying to make make real change. so it's one thing for us to be on the grounds, be grassroots, be on the field, but there's no mandate that's helping us to do those things. so i think having the right people who have those connections, you need that i need you need that folks to get evening. folks were actually in the field who i live in is on everyday basis trying to make a difference. and the folks who are able to reach those and the power to have the power to write laws to give resources to, to defend funds, to these companies. debbie. good afternoon, everybody. so before we get started,

4:46 pm
so this is where we used to live at the union rescue mission. this is the front door. yeah, we stayed here 8 months. at 1st there were so many families, women, and children here that we stayed in the day room, which is basically like a large dining room, large cafeteria, south setting linoleum floors. it looks like a gymnasium, but we had air mattresses and slapped on the floor for the 1st couple of months. um, so from september until december and then in december we were placed into a room and because my daughter was with me and not my son was just me and one child, i was sharing a room with 4 other mothers who all had one child with them at the time mm. redding. mm
4:47 pm
mm mm mm ah, i don't me or jackie, are both of us go to adelaide every afternoon about 75 miles 80 miles from our ball park. the longest distance is when we do that in santa monica, that takes at least an hour and 45 minutes to get there. we do this for 5 nights

4:49 pm
ah, there's a 1000000 reasons why people become homeless. it's not always mental illness and it's not always drug addiction. yes, those are 2. i think those are 2 reasons that have a really negative connotation. so it's easy to say, only crazy people become homeless and it's easy to say, only addicts and drug users become homeless. that's never going to happen to me in my family. but the truth is, in the united states, most people are a paycheck or 2 away. they're, they're one unpaid credit card away. you know they're one payday loan away. they're one unexpected pregnancy away there one job loss away. there's so many reasons why you could end up homeless and unable to pay your bills and unable to keep a roof over your head. and your families had lots of people leave the foster care
4:50 pm
system and have nowhere to go. you turn 18 years old and you are out. that's it. you go from having no parents and just a foster family to being on the street. all of a sudden, you're 18, it's like you're an adult, figure it out. ah ah, when you're living on the street, when you are an unselfish person, when you have no elsie going, you have nothing to look forward to. i really think that i can understand how easy it must be to slip into drug use and then fall into addiction. because if you've just got nothing else good going on in your day and you need something to make you feel good. i can't imagine that there is you know,
4:51 pm
i can't imagine that much else is going to make you feel good at that point when you hit rock bottom like it is what it is. i don't know. so i do have an immigrant coming from india. it was very, very hard for me because i've seen power deal of what it bothered me here to see these homeless people who are raised here bond here. such a wealthy country of the world, the wealthiest country of the world. and yet these people are going to trash cans to say, why a ah,
4:52 pm
a we have a program or she and i me, we basically take food part meals to the home that, that i would say on a ah, on an average lisa of about $150.00 to $200.00 wheels
4:53 pm
a night. we make it a point that we don't have them fall my line if somebody comes to the truck, fine, because line in my opinion is kind of a human. i think that's not the idea that we started big. we want to give dignity is the big thing with us. while they're setting up the table and getting this water either way, we need to bolt the wall and peers as well as them receive something. i would like to say it is
4:54 pm
waldron t as the see more than what they're giving with we might be passing on a few bucks worth felt, but ito of food on donations of clothing sanity i do it. but in the morning here, what you get is an expedient self compassion, infection and not be taught compassion can only be expedient. and you know what value on that? that's priceless. i. i was basically faced with that situation where the apartment manager knew i didn't have any way of paying immediately. but when i told her i was going to start working and i had family that would cover the rent until then it didn't matter to
4:55 pm
her. she said that she knew i was going to go back to him that she'd seen it happen hundreds of times before where women claim that they're being abused, and then they run right back to the man that they're alleging abuse against. and she didn't want to deal with that drama, and she thought it was better if i just knew the manager gave me a deadline to leave before she filed the eviction people were. and so i left because i knew it was just going to be that much harder to find an apartment. if i had an eviction on my record. but the day that i left the apartment, i really, i did not have anywhere to go. i had a little bit of money from my aunt and so i went and booked a hotel room as langley me. well i
4:56 pm
and i was staying in hotel rooms by myself or like i didn't have enough money. i would see for my car and i would try to like like i had packed up and put everything into storage, but i didn't really know how he's going to pay the storage bill. like how me going to pay i, you know, to keep the kids clothes and their toys and things like that. and so i started selling things out of his storage unit to keep the storage unit and then going and selling blood plasma. i was working on doing online transcription. so that was piece rate. it was very, very small sums of money. i might work all day and make you know, $15.00. i had never been on welfare before. i had never been on assistance before. i've, i've had unemployment when i lost jobs in the past, but i had never gotten food stamps. i had never gotten any of them. and to go from
4:57 pm
having had a job since i was 13 years old to being in a motel wondering how i'm going to get $40.00 to find somewhere for me and my kid to sleep. it was like an impossible momentous. i just had no comprehension of how do i get to a homeless shelter. so that whole process was from may 15th of 2017 and we moved into domestic violence. shelter was july 3rd. so all those months were in motel rooms or submitting the car. one would think the humiliating withdrawal from afghanistan would be the start of a washington line down of the forever ward. this is really the case. also, you tubes more on creators, and it's not only about so called coven misinformation. o
4:58 pm
is your media a reflection of reality in the world transformed what will make you feel safe? isolation for community? are you going the right way? or are you being led to somewhere? direct? what is true? what is faith? in the world corrupted, you need to descend a join us in the depths or remain in the shallows. ah,

5:00 pm
business. i'm show business. i'll see you then. ah, this is our say, the big story, this our facebook walks out and instagram suffer one of the largest outages in internet history and sending both mach about fortune tumbling by $7000000000.00 within just a few hours. and also for you this, our demo energy agency gives the green light to part of russia's north stream to gas pipeline. as europe grapples with soaring fuel prices, i say the situation is stabilizing. no one's going to pretend his completely back to normal. i wish it was, but it is, it's getting it that way or british officials down play their own on going fuel crisis. they've now deployed military forces across the country as.
