Frederica deeply admired the Congressman John Lewis, and he is a key role model in Whittier’s fight for equitable access to healthcare, social justice and economic equity.

“You are a light. You are the light. Never let anyone – any person or any force -dampen, dim or diminish your light. 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.” Congressman Lewis on being human in Across That Bridge: A Vision for Change and the Future of America. May his soul rest in perfect peace!”
