“We are a light. We are the light. We must never let anyone —  any person or any force — dampen, dim or diminish our light. We must release the need to hate, to harbor division, and the enticement of revenge. Release all bitterness. Hold only love, only peace in your heart, knowing that the battle of good to overcome evil is already won.” Amen.                                      —John Lewis
