Turn hate into love


I just learned about the senseless shooting at Sikh Temple in Wisconsin. I am saddened and offer my condolence to the family of innocent victims and the entire Sikh community. May God comfort them and give us courage to be strong in our faith. Let the hate of hate mongers turn into love so that we could live together peacefully. I also urge the authorities to give equal importance in their fight against domestic terrorism and international terrorism.
