Thank you for your immense support and coming together for our Peace Vigil on March 4th, 2017.
Srinivas Kuchibhotla was killed in an disheartening incident on Feb 22, 2017, shot in a sad display of hate. Alok Madasani and Ian Grillot were wounded in the incident that took place in Olathe, Kansas. Ian took gunshots in a very brave and compassionate attempt to protect Srinivas and Alok.
In Gandhiji's words strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will. By coming together with strong will , we witnessed over 200 people join us to raise awareness against hate and show our solidarity in support of justice and tolerance towards people of all diversities. We were reminded today by all of our community coming together that we are one community, one race - the human race and we will all support each other. We want to spread the light of love and acceptance across all our differences today.
Let us continue to stand in solidarity and strength against hate based on race, color, religion, origin or any other kind of discrimination. We are here peacefully to say that we stand strong in our belief and our rights.
