Attendees held candles and prayed for the victims, remembering them as peaceful individuals dedicated to their families and faith.

Police Chief John Edwards told the crowd that such incidents often prompt anger and calls for revenge, but he says he was struck by the peaceful reaction of the Sikh community.

Temple member Karan Singh Toor noted the crowd was a mix of races, saying it made him “so happy to see how we all come together for peace” and proud to be an American.
