Instead today we are served another portion of a gruesome reality – the news of the temple shooting which leaves 7 dead. In the aftermath we can examine the reasons for the shooting. As with any incident like this one there are always thoughts in my mind (and I’m sure others) about the shooter, “What type of person does this, and why? As the days pass we will hear more about the shooter, about his life style, etc. and then we return to our lives, still filled with many questions.
The only truth I know is this: If Michael Page would have gone to the temple needing help of any kind (food/shelter/warmth/prayer)…my Sikh brothers would have welcomed him and made him comfortable.
