Sometimes it is just best to watch a video to understand the person...and the issue. I like going to "Voices of Truth" with 'Ehu Cardwell, as he does a good job of capturing the "essence" of the person and the issue. The other video was my second one I took and POno helped me edit it. My first I have yet to edit. It is of Palani Vaughn in McDonalds'
in Waikiki as we were headed down to the start of the march.
That is...the Ku i Ka Pono march against sale/transfer of Ceded Lands.
Did you ever see the video of Jon's daughter, Jamaica? So good. I'll see if I can find it and sent that too. I saw an article that she was one of several young people who did their "slam" poetry for Obama, but she didn't do this one. She did something else. Was no doubt just as good.

One thing to keep in mind. There are many, many people out there that are against us and our pursuits of the interests of the Hawaiian people. Many of these people know that us Hawaiians are divided and that we fight among ourselves and they use that to their advantage. They could be the very ones who spread these rumors, i.e. Kau Inoa, so that we will continue to argue and be at odds with each other which again, takes our focus and energies away from the more important issues.
Mahalo Meliss. It's nice to be able to kukakuka with you. Malama kou kino.
