Sangat of Gurudwara Sahib,
Guru Nanak Foundation of America
As you are aware of the tragedy of mass shooting at the Sikh Gurdwara in Oak Creek, Wisconsin on Sunday in what law enforcement has described as an act of domestic terrorism. The entire Sikh community, like all Americans, is shocked at this senseless act of violence. This is a sad day for the entire world and we offer our deepest sympathy to the victims’ families. We appreciate the heroic actions of the Oak Creek Wisconsin police officers, who rushed to the Gurdwara to save many lives at the risk of their own.
The management of the GNFA has decided to have a candlelight vigil and Memorial for Peace at the grounds of our Gurdwara Sahib at 12917 Old Columbia Pike, Silver Spring, MD 20904 on Wednesday, August 8, 2012, at 8:00 pm and Friday, August 10, 2012, at 8:00 pm. Please join us on both days. You are requested to inform all your friends and families to attend this candlelight vigil in rememberance of the Oak Creek shooting Victims.
