With message of peace, Newtown dad to help mark 1 year since Sikh temple shooting in Wisconsin

A man whose 6-year-old daughter was killed in the Connecticut school shooting is helping a Wisconsin community mark the anniversary of a shooting at a Sikh temple that left six people dead.

Robbie Parker has been encouraging people to try to find peace in tragedy since the day after the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary, when he told reporters that he was not mad and that he felt sympathy for the gunman.

He was invited to speak at the Aug. 3 event in Wisconsin by Pardeep Kaleka (kah-LEEK'-ah), whose father was among the worshippers killed by a white supremacist at the Oak Creek temple.

Parker's daughter Emilie was among 26 people killed in the school shooting Dec. 14. He says he wants the mass shooting to make people more compassionate.
