Remarks by President Biden, First Lady Biden, and Vice President Harris at the White House Diwali Celebration

THE FIRST LADY:  Thank you, and welcome to Diwali at the White House.  (Applause.)  It’s wonderful to be here with so many friends. 

Why celebrate light on the darkest night when the moon is hardest to find?  Because that’s when we need it most  

when we realize that even the smallest flame can illuminate our path home, that the sweetest delicacies are made with love, that the most rewarding gifts are those we give to others 

All of us will face darkness at some point, but we are never alone
