OAK CREEK (WKOW) -- People from the Oak Creek community, along with members of the Sikh Temple, showed they won't stand for violence.
They gathered Monday at a church near the shooting scene to show they are able to stand tall in light of tragedy.
The Oak Creek mayor says the program marks a turning point for the Oak Creek community.
"Everybody knows the cities' names -- Tucson, Columbine, Aurora -- those are places that are defined by a tragic event. We don't want to be defined by this event."
Members of the Sikh temple spoke, hoping to educate others about their religion and what they believe.
Organizers say a lot of the attention has been focused on what has happened, but Monday they were geared toward what happens next.
