Where would you have looked to for that kind of leadership?
Well, from the mayor, first of all. The person who's leadership in the city, from your city counselors, from your state representatives, from the governor. Um, certainly from the Federal government if that was necessary. But your local leadership is, is empowered to protect all the citizens of the city, and if you can't protect your children, um, you're, you're highly suspect in the minds of the public.
