德瓦stating. This is not the news we want to report. It’s horrifying and heartbreaking, but it’s real and we can’t pretend it didn’t happen. Or isn’thappening. Friday night around 5:30pm a man walked into a Tallahassee, Florida yoga studio with a gun and started firing. Two people are confirmed dead, with at least four others injured from gunshots and rushed to the hospital.
The as of yet unidentified gunman died of a self-inflicted gunshot before police arrived, according to the塔拉哈西民主党人. This is less than a week after 11 Jewish people were shot and killed worshipping in a synagogue.
Motive has not yet been reported, though it’s rumored it had something to do with a domestic dispute.
But maybe the question doesn’t need to bewhybuthow. And what now.
But yoga studios are not exempt from violence. This is where we’re at.
Our hearts break for the people’s lives lost and the community left in trauma. We can not imagine what they, their family, friends and loved ones are going through.
Let us send them our hope and strength and love.
If you’ve felt disconnected from these horrible, unimaginable shootings we keep hearing about in the news at a wildly and alarmingly increasing rate, maybe this is the one, at a yoga studio, that’s hitting closer to home.
枪瑜伽类看上去不像那么多的一个笑话了。But it is. A very sad joke. Let’s not let these tragedies become commonplace. Let’s not become downtrodden and complacent. We can all do something. Wearing枪炮在our yoga pants是不是。是的，这个消息深感郁闷，是的，它的排放。我们学到了很多瑜伽约善待我们自己和我们的邻居。我们了解是非判断。我们也了解法眼和真理，对社区和意志力，和我们自己力量的无限性。团结的力量。
Let us take a collective deep breath and rise up.
Maybe it feels right now that you are powerless, but you are not. You have a voice, you have kindness, you have compassion, and maybe most importantly, in this moment in time, you have the right to VOTE. Let us not squander this moment in history and sit back in our bubble to let其他act. Because, like it says on the yogi tea bag,其他人是你。
