Almost four weeks after the shooting in Oak Creek, Wis., Punjab Singh, a Sikh priest remains in a coma. His son Raghuvinder Singh told the Associated Press:

“He was always sending us to buy books, uniforms and shoes for poor children…Any money he made from preaching, he would spend on donations. He wasn’t interested in a bigger house for himself or a new car. He just wanted to help poor people.”
