You know we musing about security and and all that that's going on I think it's going to be a it's going to be a day that. Is going to be tougher to get there is that you have to go there earlier and there's going to be there's going to be just an awful lot of people showing up -- since street in an all on the -- I think yeah exactly. And I've been down there have a dozen times since on the first thing I did when I got out of rehab. From Spaulding was was go around the finish line in pay my respects and spend a few minutes comments on what would you tell him we told me the other night at 127. Pieces of shrapnel in in union. To be honest with you -- for yet I know I still have some film they went from. You know my unified. I think the medical -- parent AM but. We all called to tell me knows that -- there was which called -- it is difficult to -- you know. The medical care -- funny I get my medical term for that is who. Funny story about that I get all the surgeons at Brigham and women's com entertainment. And I was gonna apparently in an announcement. You guys both learned something from -- area so I got I. I go little damage there are kind -- write down of my ankles and they go Mosul about to agree over the yeah. I get a big springs the logic behind mine the because the size of a ball cap to solve -- fuel and nails and palates and stuff so yeah. So curious com tell everybody a little bit about your phone. Nation and how he came to decide you -- you wanna start your own foundation what what happened was when I was in there a lot of famous people as you can imagine with common man in the Bruins and and the patriots and and Michelle Obama came in and you know the whole -- use of buzz and all the nurses and I I said what are you guys wanna meet up and they couldn't believe that you know I invited everybody anybody don't want to come in my room when she was there could come. So I said -- you know this would be cool if if we can live stream this. And then all the kids that have been sent me letters and on the walls and everything they can enjoy a little too because listen I appreciate. Everything's great kill foundations -- I really really appreciated but a lot of great things that have happened. And and and I just feel like everybody should join in a little bit so that kind of -- on the idea or not. You know who may who can help the kids on the anti -- front nine utilized video conference and live -- pretty cost effective so most of the talk enough. Thousand kids that I school now we talked 101000. -- don't make it a little interactive and stuff utilized technology so so that's kind of what's on the idea. You know I love all the gifts and all the charity and everything and I appreciate it you know but I -- I wanna turn around and you know give a tackle but yeah and and you Greg. You know. You sets on the narrow if you remember it was -- felt for disclosure you know we return economics -- so yes you -- -- I have tonight's guy ideal I ask you you know why you do this and I you told me and it's just burnt in my head he says -- I'm blessed I'm a little good life from the I'm happy and only give back so. You know that that really helped me along. Did it come out as I'm laughs for a -- it you know -- we're supposed to -- -- We're supposed to talk a little -- 5 AM tomorrow. That -- there lecture notes and those are great nine -- out of the -- I mean it all go home and you know on the night late you know I I do it's really interesting because. You know. I feel fortunate to have. Got to annoy you guys and to really kind of I hear from you how it goes and and wallets one of the worst. Things that could ever happen to anybody it's also. Sometimes a blessing because of the things he's gotten to experience. Despicable I mean the worst thing was -- you know my frenzy that is severely injured. You know they lost slams and you know when they told me that you know they were all alive I was I couldn't believe me you know on. The -- so district will put a bomb publicly that I you know I don't care what the cause or whatever it's just a despicable act but isn't it it's really 12. Of the worst humans have but then you know right from the first responders to the to hospital and family and friends and it's fall by the best -- humans have. So so that's like to have the view I took because I mean who would blame me if -- -- off you know. And in the interest and just -- with that you don't. But also Preston and got depressed in the -- -- -- you know everybody's gonna see the good because you look at the TV and have bombs going off 678 times a day and this kids get in a show.
