Adam Morris, a photographer for MilwaukeeMag.com, shares his photos of the survivors of the shooting at the Gurdwara in Oak Creek, Wisconsin in August:

Look at their faces. Look into their eyes. You’ll see pain, heartbreak and weariness. But you’ll also see resilience and, in some instances, even defiance. Family members, survivors, priests and temple leaders stared unflinchingly into the camera’s lens. Here they were – and are and will continue to be – in a sacred space where they lost their loved ones, some even back in the very basement where they hid, listening to a hellish symphony of gunfire, commotion and silence.
