After Sikh temple attack, victim's son and former white supremacist formed unlikely alliance

After a white supremacist killed Pardeep Kaleka's father and five others at a Wisconsin temple last year, Kaleka was skeptical when a self-described former skinhead reached out and invited him to dinner.

But Kaleka accepted, and he's grateful he did. He says Arno Michaelis (mih-KAY'-lis) has become a brother to him, and they've spent the past year hoping to turn bloodshed into peace.

Michaelis was a key figure in the white-power movement in the 1990s. Hoping to make amends, he now promotes tolerance and peace.

He and Kaleka co-founded Serve2Unite, a group that urges Milwaukee schoolchildren to work for peace.

Their friendship is an unlikely alliance, but they both say their goal is to turn something tragic into something positive.
