The Sikh community lived the words of slain civil rights leader the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. this week by responding with love to an attack that killed six Sikhs, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker told a memorial service Friday.

Wearing an orange head covering in keeping with Sikh tradition, Walker quoted King's assertion that only love can overcome hate, and said he witnessed that truth in the aftermath of Sunday's attack at a Sikh temple in a Milwaukee suburb.
