Two children who were present during August’s shooting attack on the Oak Creek, Wisconsin, Gurdwara were honored yesterday by the Yell and Tell Foundation for their efforts in alerting people in the Gurdwara:

Abhay Singh and his sister Amanat did the right thing when gunman Wade Page showed up at the Sikh Temple in Oak Creek and started shooting.

The kids ran inside to tell adults about the dangerous situation.

Their father, Benny Singh, thought divine intervention played a role in the actions of his children:

“we never talked to them about this kind of situation but I think God gave them wisdom.”

The Davidson Yell and Tell Foundation, Inc. is a 501c(3)* charitable foundation set up to teach young children what to do when they observe a dangerous situation.

The Yell and Tell program teaches children how to take action and be a hero. Some of the most dangerous situations that this program will cover are: POOLS....RIVERS/LAKES....FIRE....POISON....GUNS....CHILD ENTICEMENT.
