alohaIMG_9484

 KAANAPALI, MAUI HAWAII—Today we offer photos of aloha (below) to our Native Son whose new twitter account is filled with racist commentary.

 ALWAYS

 LOVE

 OVER

 HATE

 ALWAYS

 Is a message delivered every Sunday here by a preacher who is a man of aloha.

 Aloha is Hawaii’s gift to the world. “Hawaiians have always been people of aloha. It is one of the first words we learn to read,””says a beloved concierge at the most Hawaiian hotel here.

 Aloha is real and comes from within. It is lived but it is not automatic. It comes in the form of a friendly smile aloha is empathy for others that comes from the heart   a friendly manner of an act of kindness.

 There are people of hate and they’re our people of aloha not only here but on the Mainland. For aloha can be acquired and it is my many visitors who bring it back to Seattle and Syracuse, Phoenix to Philadelphia, and Newport Beach to New York.

 Whether you call it aloha, or something else, be assured Mr. President that there are far more people who put love over hate than do not.

 One of your tweeters tweeted, “I love you.” Be assured that there is a lot of love for you out there, much more than you know.

WHAT STRING DID POYNESIANS INVENT THAT IS STRONGER THAN NYLON and why was it so important to Hawaii.

Kapalua, May 13–How do you hold a canoe together to sail from Tahiti and discover what today is known as Hawaii. You soak a coconut in sea water for four months, remove the mass, pound it, and weave it into rope. Watch for details in one of two upcoming columns on the Celebration of the Arts at the Ritz-Carlton Kapalua. VOICES OF MAUI TALK STORY, LLC PHOTOS
