This right as the good thing about these things you. Not only in the column. ABC but you Austin beat cone spots by bringing them three. Three today came news. And then also too. Put those people who won't give you listen to this evening to keep it going. You can call. Me. 3367272. 80. Being previewed at the college Ross who rigor as soon as located at spirited at one if there to war in Colorado school row. With certain moto 2710. Flat. It would have been there for is new unwrapped toy donations. And those donations would be use for a zero to seventeen age group where it comes to the straws toward towards exchange. We wanna keep people happy in Latin. And see you once you do that you would know where you items. Absolutely. And then asking this question every year because of one sue may be new to this program right. Who may not necessarily be familiar with the peace stores for a war toys. Or perhaps they have been away for awhile and are are coming back. But what I really appreciated and I want to make a point that every year you're here. I want our listeners to know. Why or how the peace choice award toys came about. Because is a very important personal history yes to this event that had an impact on your own family. And met mass effect. To listen. This evening it was actually started by Chile. It was a killing that was indeed he just hours community which I asked them to be reduced. We had to go through some very. Some blew my leaked and made great mom welcomed me pigs and told result is a fan do we must learn to two G. One of the things about this young man who moon is committed to murder two broke them they were districts. Lot of people don't stand for is given arguments in buses and bikes and things just mentioned sometimes emotions. Take oh. Literature was emotions take over again. Drastic actions happen. Well once that thing evolved. We my mother gathered as a as a fan I mean I have several soon enough for them and her biggest thing was because she is a no vote of life mother she moves to a good mood you know woods and those. Every wounded moves lag her there was two Fuji. Forgive and lit. Dot Helms that can be. That moment ally. Yes you have those feelings of anguish and ask guest this realistic do you have did those feelings of anger that's realistic. But my mother told us as a family. We will. Love Jerome Smith who's called G Dayton and he also it was a studio call it's really visible for me in my broad humor base for. So she just thought that was right idea. We had a chance to talk to his mother's mode was very good news for giving. Our family has been given. That band and that's why we won't you all to know demeanor man piece to it is not to retaliate. And is to bring Luo. And that's what were a neat. We've got to stop taking things in all hands. And study mostly give blow. All the way to go. And that's how to start and that's why. I feel remain because. My family did did you an idea did. Is that Joseph has blessed. Us as a fan and everything we do. I feel it if we do redundant. Opposite. I think we it is being in bed at home and we have to learn to listen to them the sounds of blue man. And while the greatest qualities. That was given to us and demand. And of course an imitation of our creator absolute I think he's just some wonderfully wonderfully said. The band in and the importance of why this is done. Every year this is vetted there's also underlying message is more for our young ones even though this is a very nice occasion in which. They will be receiving toy days since we know what happens generally during the holidays yes but this is also more about the importance of that quality being expressed every day. Forgiveness and love. Because if you know ran out of Indy right now you know people are going to him about it time and yet there's been allowed Cubans lose him out of period benefit we being had keys get mistaken. They're ready Rio goons and you know Mary olds who know their nature have no retaliated against that. But this season is about peace and hidden so. Isn't my brother maybe Cassel is what is for all children. Who have went through violent situations. And if we learn how to. Turn. Emotions to love instead of retaliation and instead of hate. I think that we can have a much that world. And we can give. Loads over the prairies and and really have strong background where we get to do. Well thank you for the love that you always show oh yeah everywhere you go van and I don't mean just on this program. We have landed exactly. Exactly have to and I can't think of one individual who has more loving the new model. You know today PO I say there's an element. NC that people who move mean feel a bit if we as he did not learn to forgive you. And then how I know we're OK you beat. I think about a broom who's decisions in the masons the and that finger but even my council member who moves so much. Doctors didn't convert who allowed me to calm inside of call Russell salute to do my creativity bright and they were about to remove guru and and it Simpson uses W my creativity. At the sands of happy were you might. Good god just even council member just the jobs lose lose when she was this. Seeing god is that people in modest dips and I don't think that would have happened if I don't retaliate. Perry that point I don't really feel I want key is who are listening. To listen that. Everything has it is and life is not pay but which you have to do. Is to beat. Acceptable to your own room decisions you have to be responsible for what you were thinking and what you feel. Released dead negative feeling about heat and then turn it to load. And you can have a better life that you never get anything. Snap. Nurture them thank you so much for that then. And to also own. Radio family see this event. As a wonderful opportunity to be around association. All you good association to for a young ones is so important also appreciate you. Making that point that. You know sadly we here in too many stories Truman is still about our young ones and it's not always in a positive light yes so to really. Take that light began and included in a direction in which. It does shine on the good things seem so bad that are happening. That a lot of times we unfortunately don't get to talk about beat duke which is why I appreciate it. Public affairs programs like this hole because that is the focus it's to talk about the good discs and even though this can be looked upon as aid. Temporary escape temporary skate from from all the things that are happening around us that are not good. Hmm I like the fact our conversations such as these men. Allow us to focus on what's good and once loving what's peaceable schools you know and all of those qualities. Seasoning all of these programs actually started looking at have been happy here look at him. Ranked that community knew it was a monster attack until it is you lose it. A lot of those young people who have came at a community has became successful some not because it was because of the low play. We got through Texas heat in real and Kristen look and then they fielded orders right and in its break. So I mean. If kids would just lit it and stop trying to be like gangsters. And stopped trying to be like what you see on TV. And paint it when you see you a group of people pray. You'll want to do good shoot through the cracks. Me. Reverse debt. And whole. Crazy. You blew. Dole sort of things that last test. That play. It's just like you sent and it's it's all about giving that love an inch and showing it in return from yes showing in his much. And you just really see. The content mint on on young ones I mean a lot. I've children who likely be and whether it's around this time of the year or edit any. Period or point of the year this right don't have an opportunity to have. Something nice like a bison absolute or a computer that's true or a basketball. Or. Video games that promote positive ID in fact only think about the things that a lot of our key is that as they get older. And they think about a lot of the things that they're taking in school of course when you an hour coming through things technology was was. A little more. Archaic for a lack of better word president is now it just amazes me the technology that our children are able to use nowadays it. And it's hate that that technology. Combine it with that knowledge into music in such a positive way they gives back. To the community in which they come from. When you think about video. Programming program wore the different things again focusing on that positive Eddie House does that are key is that when they go off to college or. Take on a trade or maturity and do something for a living that works around computers works well. Compute because it made me think about Marion venerable blue Texas right. See this lady she continues to give confused and missed when a fabulous writer. Paul Sweeney and he. But I don't you can't he continues to view over no. That is what is that is seeks. His CNN and and their man as this scene and all to view trailer on a cruises. Won't the key. You look around and you see people like. Paul only Steve grabs the monarchy and hanging. Churches. Hockey we have to continue Zulu king obviously thank you I did accuse our when you get to receive do you. From a sponsor. I took a moment to say thank you. When you some positive influence character who's prone to say thank again. Because those are the type things a long list in turn. Good tennis you know we just blessed Christmas. Absolutely every day band and the reason why you have been such a contributor so all the things that have taken place. In our community whether it's through the Sam's recreation sinner or Carl H Russell senior community center. And is my opportunity in my friend say thank. You all they are you own that you've done. And you know what if this is what community and family is always snub bowel. It is then you're so right we talked about this time and time again it's a teachable moments she's tomorrow when our young people see firsthand. The active giving actively. When they see and hear firsthand. The act of saying those words and thank you can showing appreciation. Because you know it it really does Ben in this interest in were having this conversation. That word you who. Who I feel you don't hear as often do as I think one should. Don't and then maybe just my personal feelings on some things you ran on time.
