LTE: Celebrating Sikh Appreciation Day
It was with great pride for Glen Rock that I witnessed our Town Council unanimously vote to make April 14 Sikh Appreciation Day. I’d like to especially thank Councilmember Arati Kreibich for leading this initiative.
Like the LGBTQ Pride Flag raising this summer and the inaugural Downtown Hanukkah Menorah lighting this winter, Sikh Appreciation Day recognizes a segment of our society that has suffered discrimination and bias in the world at large.
The best defense against hatred is education, awareness and exposure. Fortunately, Glen Rock is showing itself to be a beacon of respect, inclusion, and appreciation for diverse cultures and lifestyles. Emphasizing such values makes our community stronger and helps us raise our children to be respectful human beings. I’m so proud to be raising my children here.
