I Want to Thank My Bahai Friend Gigi – Lilly Freemyer

Gigi has been one of my good friends since I was nine years old. Her parents raised her as Bahai. Though we come from different religious backgrounds, we established a strong relationship through our passion about our faiths. Gigi and I met as fourth graders at National Cathedral School (NCS) in Washington, D.C., an all-girls Episcopalian school that is on the same campus as the Washington National Cathedral. Gigi and I first played together in our fourth-grade edition of Shakespeare’s Macbeth. We’ve known each other for over ten years and our relationship has led me to grow in my faith. Over the years we had many conversations about our religious traditions and how they hold similar, if not the same values.

Intersecting principles of faith helped established a deep friendship, one that led me to become interested in interfaith relations in the first place.
