First Lady Michelle Obama is scheduled to visit the Sikh Temple where white supremacist Wade Michael Page killed 6 worshipers after going on a shooting rampage in the quiet Wisconsin town.
As reported by the Associated Press:
The Sikh temple where a white supremacist killed six people earlier this month has been largely repaired.
A crisp new American flag flies out front, prayer services have returned to a normal schedule and walls once scarred by gunfire are now covered with banners of support from around the world.
While the Sikh community in this Milwaukee suburb continues to mourn the dead, they have taken solace in one fact: The killing has drawn attention to their religion and given them a chance to share traditional Sikh messages of peace and justice with a global audience.
A scheduled visit Thursday by the first lady offers one more opportunity to preach unity and compassion.
"There's a prayer we say twice a day, asking God to please give peace to everybody and give progress to every person in this birth," said Inderjeet Singh Dhillon, one of the temple leaders. "We don't mention a person's name or color or religion. We just say one word for every human on Earth."
Even though the community has returned to some form of normalcy, the First Lady's visit will surely be something to smile about.
