Local heroes recognized


MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- A member of the ABC News family helped recognize local heroes.

John Quinones of What Would You Do? spoke at Cardinal Stritch's Faith and Work forum.

Among those honored were Pardeep Kaleka and former police officer Brian Murphy for their work to bring people together after the Sikh temple shooting.

Kaleka says, "Right after the temple shooting happened we had an urgency to be able to do something with that. But I'm coming to that point were there's resolution to that. We're having progress happen in this city, this country, this nation, all the time."

Quinones told the crowd that any response to an injustice or tragedy starts with one person, and then others will join in.
