November marks the 18th anniversary of the post 9-11 arson attack on Gobind Sadan, USA.

We witnessed 2 great miracles as the Light triumphed over the darkness:
In the midst of the blaze, the Holy Scripture, Guru Granth Sahib, did not burn
And the power of forgiveness overcame the hatred, healed, and transformed the lives of those involved and rebuilt a community of love.

This year is especially momentous as we join the world-wide Sikh community in celebrating the 550th anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev ji, the founder of the Sikh tradition, who set the standard for a world without walls.
Sikhs are called on to “Recognize everyone as one human race”.
At a time when our country and the world is deeply divided, let us gather and celebrate our shared values and commitment to making a better world for future generations.
