Support Pours In After Sikh Temple Shootings
City officials are archiving letters they received following the attack at the Sikh Temple in Oak Creek and plan to put up a display in city hall.
Since the attack at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin, letters, e-mails and voicemails from around the world have poured into city of Oak Creek offices.
From international leaders to blue-collar citizens, many people wanted to express their support for the city and the local Sikh community.
City officials are archiving this correspondence and have started posting letters on the city Facebook page. Mayor Steve Scaffidi said a display will be put up in Oak Creek City Hall so residents can read them.
"We have letters that are coming in from embassies around the world," he said.
Up on the city's Facebook page is a letter from the Australian Consulate General, Roger Price. Just yesterday came a letter from the Mexican embassy.
E-mails have poured into the inboxes of Scaffidi and Police Chief John Edwards since Sunday. Letters have even showed up at Scaffidi's house, he said.
"It shows you the level of support," Scaffidi said. "People want to help."
