Video: You Might Be In Tears After Watching This Community’s Response To Fear, Terror, And Hatred

A memorial near the entrance of the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin.

On August 5, 2012, a white supremacist opened fire on a Sikh Gurdwara in Oak Creek, Wisconsin. This is the story of the community during and after the tragedy. Today, in the Sikh spirit of “Chardi Kala,” a state of relentless optimism and high spirit, I hope you’ll take a moment to remember those dearly departed and ask yourself why more innocent people have to die from gun violence every day.
