Hey... I keep getting a null pointer exception and I'm not sure why... I'm attempting to pass an object Person to another class where the object will be stored....

Something like:


and the class storePerson has the method

and the addPerson method starts with

public void addPerson(Person PersonOne){


So, why am I getting the null pointer?
