We gather this evening with heavy hearts as we are a community in mourning. The tragic and sudden loss of three of our students over this past weekend is not far from our thoughts and prayers.
Although this event is to be a festive occasion I ask that we also take this opportunity a one of many steps that we can take to begin the process of healing.
Please join me in a moment of silence to remember Swami, Jithesh and Bhavesh.
As we light candles this evening let us draw hope from their light, comfort from their warmth and strength through the very act of our coming together as a community.
We are by the universal symbol of light as one.
