“A group of Sikh men were among those came to Newtown to attend an interfaith service at Newtown High School on December 16, 2012 which was also attended by President Barack Obama. The service was held two days after [a gunman] walked into Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. and opened fire killing 20 children and several adults on December 14, 2012.” (source: CNN)
Still dealing with the aftermath of August’s mass shooting at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin, Sikhs around the country (including Sikh communities in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Fairfield, California, New York, Fresno, California, Sacramento, California, Bridgewater, New Jersey) have been gathering for vigils and prayer after the mass murder in Newtown, Connecticut.
I think it’s very nice of the Sikh faith representatives to support the broken hearted citizens in Newtown so soon after their own devastating tragedy. Very nice indeed.
