President Obama Wishes a Happy Diwali

This week, President Obama sent out this message acknowledging and observing Diwali, the festival of lights. This was a great way for the President to reach out to followers of Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism, and Jainism. I didn’t realize it, but former President, George W. Bush was the first President to start acknowledging Diwai, so I say this is much of a change with the new administration, but personally I had never heard of the Diwali holiday, so I then decided to do a bit of research.

Thanks to Nilesh for sending me this video.
