It became necessary to educate our fellow citizens that 99% of those you see with turbans are Sikhs, the followers of Sikhism, an independent, monotheistic faith. It is not a branch or blend of any other religion or religions. A path toward universal upliftment.

Jasmine Kaur Minhas, a junior in high school, thought and organized this Interfaith Peace Walk in Newark Main Street.
Thanks to our dear friend Tom Davis who helped film this call to attend the interfaith Peace Walk.
How a blessed mind can use its creative energy to celebrate “Love, respect and Peace”.
Unity in Diversity: Different people, different colors, come together to make United States of Diversity.
Turban is Sikhs’ article of faith. Among other things it mandates that a Sikh stands out as someone available to help anyone in need.

April 15, 2017. Walking for peace. Together. Age, color, gender, race or religion can’t divide peace lovers.
Peace is precious. Hold it high.
Everyone spoke for love and peace. And everyone listened.
“This is just a start!”
God bless those who not only came to participate but came prepared with beautiful messages to make the Peace Walk even more effective and meaningful.
