“We can say thanks for what (Murphy) did,” Singh said.
Chella said while the shooting that took the seven lives and left Murphy and two others wounded has faded from the headlines, the Sikh community remembers what happened as if it was only yesterday.
“The Sikh community has been amazing,” Mayor Paul Dyster said. “They are emblematic of the American melting pot. If you look at how they have assimilated into the community, they know what it means to be Americans.”
