Vigil For Sukhvir Singh Ji

Tomorrow night, Wednesday, 28 November a candlelight vigil will be held for Sukhvir Singh. The vigil is being held at 6:00 p.m. at the Singh Sabha Gurdwara in Renton. The address is 5200 Talbot Rd South, Renton, Washington.

Please bring a candle and something to cover your head, since the sangat
will be reciting rehraas and ardaas for Sukhvir Singh at the vigil. If you are Sikh, why not show your pride and commitment and tie a turban? Be sure to dress warmly as the weather will be quite chilly. (Mai still has some mothering in her!) The vigil will start at 6:00 p.m. sharp.
Please, everyone who possibly can, come to this.

There are approximately 10,000 Sikhs in the Puget Sound area. Many will be there. I would like to see even more nonSikhs show up to show support. With about 3,203,314 people in Metro Seattle, that should be do-able. That would also show the world that Seattle is not the bigoted community that these several attacks on Sikhs in the last few years might lead some to believe.

I wish I had a picture of our brother before this attack to post. We need to see him as he is now,of course, but we also need to think of him as the strong, proud Sikh he is, not just as the victim of this mindless criminal.

If you do not live in the Seattle area - or even if you do, you can also show your support for
Sukhvir Singh by sending him and his family an email at
