On behalf of the Sikh community we would like to send our condolences to the family and friends of Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church. We have you in our prayers and want you to know that you are not alone as you move forward from this senseless and violent act.

But through love and prayer, we hope that you find comfort knowing that the lives lost are now with God.
