The Sikh Shootings at the Wisconsin temple disturbed me greatly, it came shortly after the Colorado shootings at the cinemas...For me both are things that my family does often...There is nothing more devastating than losing your love ones, just going about your own daily business, worst still at a place of worship...My heart and prayers goes out to those affected by this terrible tragedy.
This puts Sikhism in the media spot light, more still the ignorance that people have of religions or beliefs apart of their own. There is nothing wrong with understanding the commonality of all religions which uphold the same sense of universal principles of love, compassion, and prayer/meditation. For Sikhism, it puts a spot light on re-affirming the teachings of the gurus which based on these universal principles.
