I am a long-time reader of your newspaper, and appreciate the work you do for the Indian American community. Recently, as you have already reported, Ronil Singh, a police officer in Newman, Calif., was shot and killed on Christmas Day during a routine traffic stop. He was of Fiji Indian descent and he leaves behind a wife and very young child, who will unfortunately never get to know its father. 

I was hopeful that through your widespread medium, and with your reach in our community, if the community could please find a way to help the late officer's family. It would be an incredible gesture and I am sure they would really appreciate it. Additionally, it would be a great way for the Indian American community in California, and even across the country, to come together, and do something for our own, who are undergoing very trying times.
