Earlier this month, I traveled to Oak Creek, Wisconsin, to commemorate the tenth anniversary of the 2012 mass shooting at a Sikh gurdwara, where seven people were murdered by a white supremacist. As we memorialized the victims – Paramjit Kaur Saini, Sita Singh, Ranjit Singh, Prakash Singh, Suveg Singh Khattra, Satwant Singh Kaleka and Baba Punjab Singh – I was moved by the strength of their families, the Gurdwara congregants, and members of the Oak Creek community in the face of a horrific, hateful killing.
With July coming to a close, I hope you are finding ways to enjoy summer and escape the heat, whether that means trips to the beach, family cookouts, or evening walks with friends. Of course, I hope all of us can enjoy these activities safely, without fears of threat or violence.
