Sometimes terrible things happen, and we have no idea how to comprehend them, much less respond to them, much much less combat them.
Something terrible happened in Paris Friday night—as of this blog writing, at least 125 (reports vary right now) people were killed in armed attacks while at a concert, a sports stadium, a restaurant and other popular spots in the city. The story is still unfolding, and will likely take some time to become clear.
I don’t know what to say here on this blog about the awful massacre. I don’t know what to say here on this blog about the violent world we live in. One thing I do know—when terrible things happen, it’s good to keep movement an important part of our lives. It helps center and calm us, and it is often done in the company of friends or family.
So let’s do some movement today.
To keep us company, here are some pictures of some female athletes, engrossed in the joy and concentration of sports or activity.

I’ll stop here, and will be back next week.
