    As a Christian I am truly sorry for the any of the hardships that Sikhs were shown. There was a case here in Northern California where a Sikh man was harrased because he wore a turban. A true Chirstian should have spoken up and sent support to the man and his family but I never did. It's true at the time I had no idea what a Sikh was but I should have done something no matter what his religious beliefs are. Now that I have done some research on Sikhism I see that it is a proud and benevolant religion that has many of the same characteristics of Christianity. Infact it seems you act more Christian than most of the Christians I see and know LOL.

    God Bless you all.

    What's sad is that the family sold thier business and left the area. It's just a shame and embarasment to me.

    You lose some you gain some... try to spread some of this love around... maybe a new SIKH family will move into your area and you can make amends...

    Sometimes God does give us a second chance... cheers !!

    I just believe racism is a form of difficulty.

    When a majoty expresses it's difficulty on a minority.
