“The children were downstairs, in Sunday school.
The women were in the kitchen nearby, cooking the weekly meal that is free to all.
And the gunman was striding into the wide-open Sikh Temple, bent on killing as many people as he could.
Then came the shots, ripped off, according to a weapons instructor who lives nearby, “as fast as you can pull the trigger.”
Counting the gunman – fatally shot by an Oak Creek police officer – the death count stands at seven.
“This,” a temple leader said later, “is insanity.”
Truly it is insanity when one cannot go about living one’s faith without FEAR of being attacked, including being shot and killed. My prayers and condolences, to the families of the dead, as well as concern for those who survived.
