MILWAUKEE (AP) -- First lady Michelle Obama is scheduled to meet with relatives of those killed and injured in a Sikh temple shooting in suburban Milwaukee earlier this month.
Sikh leaders say they're grateful for the visit, set for Thursday afternoon. They also say they've taken comfort in the knowledge that the shooting has at least helped them educate the world about their religion.
Amardeep Kaleka is the son of the temple president, one of six people killed. Kaleka says his father is educating more people about Sikhism in death than he could in life.
Inderjeet Singh Dhillon is one of the temple leaders. He says Sikhs pray for God to give peace to everyone, regardless of religion. He says recent media attention has helped Sikhs spread that message of peace.
