I was in the garden Friday afternoon when my friend Joz messaged from California, “Hello, checking in. What’s this about an active shooter near you?”
Luckily, the shooting was on the other side of town and the danger had already passed, but it was sobering.
Only thirty days after the spa shootings in Atlanta where six out of the eight people killed were Korean and Chinese American women (four seniors), we were already mourning another mass shooting impacting our community at the FedEx in Indianapolis. Known to have a 90% Sikh American workforce, at least four out of the eight people killed were Sikh Americans (three women, three seniors).
