And now we're about to meet a very interesting man. An inspiring man as well. This is a guy in Virginia. A police officer make something many people smile. He's gt a viral video just gone -- people are going crazy. Check him out doing a little formation. ??? Oh, I love it. He's got it. Look at him, look. Lieutenant deuntay Diggs. He's joining us right now. Lieutenant, thank you for coming on. Good morning. Thank you for having me. We love seeing your smile and your dance. Tell us how this all came to be? Well, I was at the pep rally at north Stafford high school and the energy was a little by low. It was spirit week. I saw the opportunity to engage with the students. I just jumped in and took a chance. You've been taking a lot of chances. We love what your principal had to say. Scott Mcclelland, when dealing with kids, you are very level-headed and seek to find ways to inspire kids to make good choices. Stafford county is fortunate to have a law enforcement officer of his caliber. That must make you feel great. It absolutely does. I'm so very fortunate and blessed to have this opportunity. And, you know, you have a -- quite a fascinating back story. One of the first openly gay cadets at the military institute. First openly gay police officer on your police department right now. What is your message when you're talking to kids in the classroom? Well, my message is really that, you know, law enforcement officers are human beings. And that they can come to us and they can trust us. And so, I engage with them and I want them to to understand that, you know, there's a journey to success. And so, we talk about that. Talk about making positive choices. And, we thank you for that, because so many times, when we're in the media and showing stories that's going on, you know what's going on around the country, it's wonderful to show this type. How do we bring this -- how do we bridge this gap between some in the community and what's going on with police officers? Well, it's really just stepping out and showing that we're human. And engaging with the community. And so here, the Stafford county sheriff's office, we focus on community policing. Part of that zbegt out and dancing with the kids and engaging in ways they wouldn't expect. Sheriff David Decatur, our sheriff here is much about that and stands behind me. Speaking of dancing. Would you mind? Come on, come on. Oh, yeah, let's go. Let's go. ??? Whoa! Oh! No, he didn't. It's over. It's over. Thank you so much. He didn't have to be asked twice. So great. Thank you. Congratulations. Thank you. Thank you so much. Wow. Oh, my goodness. That's the second time we've had man do a split on that screen here at the breakfast table. Not complaining. Those three topics should wake us up for Monday. Coming up next, how everybody's got something.
