Happy Diwali to all

Today I had the honor of making the first-ever presentation in L.A. City Council Chambers recognizing Diwali, the festival of lights that marks the beginning of the new year for many Hindus and is celebrated by South Asian Americans across the country.

I have traveled to India during Diwali and it is truly an incredible and marvelous experience -- something I will never forget.

This is a good time for all of us to reflect and a time for all of us to let the good inside win over evil and to receive the knowledge that wins over the darkness of ignorance.
