The Gift of Our Wounds: A Sikh and a Former White Supremacist Find Forgiveness After Hate

The Homestretch

On August fifth, 2012, a white supremacist walked into a Sikh Temple in Oak Creek, Wisconsin, and opened fire. The shooter was a member of a white supremacist group, founded by Arno Michaelis. Six people died that day -- including temple leader Satwant Singh Kaleka. In the years after the attack Satwant's son, Pardeep Singh Kaleka, has done something most of us can't even imagine. He's joined forces with Arno Michaelis, who has since walked away from white supremacy. The two men now run an organization called Serve2Unite. It works with young people and educational institutions to cultivate compassion and inclusion. Tomorrow, Kaleka and Michaelis will bring their story to Mount Royal University. But first, they joined host Doug Dirks live in studio.
