First lady Michelle Obama is meeting with families of those killed and wounded earlier this month in the shooting at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin.
Temple official Kulwant Singh Dhaliwal says Obama offered her sympathies Thursday for the Aug. 5 tragedy. He says her appearance is a "wonderful gesture."
She met with families in a hallway of the Oak Creek high school.
Dahaliwal says Sikhs have taken comfort in the knowledge the shooting has at least helped them educate the world about their religion.
Amardeep Kaleka is the son of the temple president, one of six people killed. Kaleka says his father is educating more people about Sikhism in death than he could in life.
