LILBURN, GA – Today, U.S. Representative Rob Woodall attended the Lilburn Diwali Festival. Diwali is one of the foremost Hindu festivals of the year and symbolizes the spiritual victory of light over darkness, good over evil, and knowledge over ignorance.

“The Seventh District is so fortunate to have a wonderfully vibrant and diverse community. We set a remarkable example of what it means to celebrate those things that make us unique and those that bring us together,” said Congressman Woodall. “Diwali – also known as the Festival of Lights – is a celebration of light triumphing over darkness, and there is no better way to bring light to any situation than by serving a neighbor. We are blessed to live in such a wonderful community that embraces that shared principle, independent of any differences that exist between us.  I love that about who we are, and I’m grateful to everyone for making it a reality. Thank you to the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir for inviting me to be a part of your celebration, and congratulations on your twelve years as servant leaders in our community!
