I was deeply saddened to hear of the shooting in Oak Creek, Wisconsin on Sunday, in which six people were tragically killed at a Sikh Temple. My thoughts go out to the families of those who lost their lives. I wish the injured a swift recovery, including the local police officer who was shot and injured while helping the wounded.
