Southern California Sikhs Invite the Community to Join in Solidarity
On August 9, at 7:00 pm a special service will be held to remember those innocent victims of the senseless act of violence on the morning of August 5th, 2012. Six Sikhs were killed and others were wounded after being fired upon during the prayer services held at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin.
We will offer our prayers for the families who have lost loved ones as well as for the healthy recovery of those injured—one of them being Lieutenant Brian Murphy, who heroically put himself in harm’s way to help protect the community.
The Sikh community is appreciative of the outpouring of support received from our friends and neighbors, the interfaith community, as well as government leaders. We invite you to stand with us to represent one united community as we begin to heal from this national tragedy.
The remembrance will be held at The Guru Nanak Sikh Temple, USA which is located at 7122 Orangethorpe Avenue, Buena Park, California. 90621.
