On Augst 5th, 2012, a white supremacist entered a peaceful Sikh temple and murdered six people, including the temple president. Pardeep, the son of that man, relates his story of healing, and how we as a society can move forward to create a better society with less hate, more hope, and a tighter community. His powerful and emotional story will move anyone.
Pardeep is the eldest son of Satwant Singh Kaleka – the president of the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin, who was gunned down during the attacks of August 5th, 2012. This incident marked the worst single race-based incident that America has seen in the past 50 years. Pardeep is a first generation immigrant who grew up in Milwaukee and graduated from Marquette University. Being a former Milwaukee Police Officer and current educator in the inner city – Pardeep is no stranger to the never ending battle against racism, bigotry, and ignorance. He firmly believes that the lamp of knowledge and truth will outshine all the darkness in the world, and does his best to profess this through his work with Serve 2 Unite, the NGO he helped to found in response to the shooting deaths of 6 worshippers at the hands of a White Supremacist. Serve2Unite combines Art, Service Learning, and Positive Global Mentors to foster peaceful identity in schools and communities.
