Are there any particular stories in the book? I'm sure there are that we haven't discussed that have resonated with proofreaders and those who have had a chance to read it. Do any come to mind. I'll start with. So my favorite story, my favorite part of the book, maybe my favorite story, ever in my own life, which I shared. I don't know if you remember, it was. A while ago, but you really did like this and that made me feel good. I believe, I believe it. I believe it, because it's a positive story. Like there are stories that are about how people get to the point where, like really bad things have happened, and that's part of us understanding, but there are stories about overcoming to and, you know, my uncle Rango, who was such a dear beloved person in my life. Is someone whose early life didn't look like things were going to go that. Well, he had a sixth. Education and not a lot of guidance and support and then was drafted in the second world war and experienced some horrible, horrible things during the war, but through those experiences, develop the sense of self that said, I am a conscientious person. I am a strong person. I'm a person who can do difficult things in, you can do difficult things for reasons that are so strong. That one can't look away. From them and a person who can do that. Those things should not feel ashamed of themselves. Should feel a sense of Pride, am. It's the recognition of tragedy and even with a sixth grade education and the limits that that kind of lack of exposure to the bigger aspects of of the world. And even of how our minds work was able to really understand that and have a very, very good life. And part of why he had a good life was the silver lining of the trauma that he experienced in the second world war, because he came out, That was a sense of self that said, you know what, you're not a delinquent loser. You're the opposite of that. You're someone who leads men to safety when they're otherwise likely to be killed who does and I want to give away the story but does something incredibly difficult that haunted him his whole life because in his opinion, I don't understand what else could have been to do, but what he did because that was what was in front of him and he didn't see it as his fault, in a sense. That would have brought him shame if That makes sense. And that's why I think it's my favorite story. And even before when I was younger, I was able to put all this together. I could see reasons to feel proud and made me see. Hope in that even when I was quite young, his story was very empowering, even though we didn't know the details. He never would tell us the details. But we knew what he had come through, and he was this decorated war hero, and we felt proud of him because he felt a sense of pride in himself. That's right. I do remember, I do remember Uncle Rango. Do you remember how could one forget,
