|Thirteen-year old Angad Singh is truly making the world a better place. Through his new documentary film, "One Light," he reaches out to his neighbors and community in suburban Atlanta, Georgia, to tell them about his faith (Sikhism) and to learn about them as well. The mission is to connect - drawing on similarities, and inspiring everyone to take baby-steps in the direction of making this world a friendlier place by education, connection and inspiration.
Angad states: “After sharing our backgrounds and beliefs with each other, we were thrilled to find that, even though we were rooted in different parts of the world and practiced different religions, we had so much in common in terms of family and faith values, love for humanity, nature and animals, etc.”
“The idea for us, as Americans, is to celebrate what binds us together, and not get mired in what divides us.”
