He Hawaii Kaua. This transcends ancestry of any sort - it is spirit. When we look at our fellow man, we identify with him, not against him. We embrace everyone as equals, everyone as worthy, everyone as of our own blood. This is pono.

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately.I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on this email( email@example.com ) for the full details,
Have a nice day
Thanks God bless.
o Hanaloa Helela keia.
Iʻm not sure if youʻve had a chance to check out recent replies to discussions youʻve started, but I have been active in the last week posting direct challenges to your point of view. After checking out your page today and seeing that youʻre 95 years old, I felt that I should write you directly and apologize for any disrespect I have shown in my challenges to your mana`o. I know everyone deserves respect, but I think that kupuna, especially kupuna of your age, deserve an extra measure of respect, regardless of their views. I still stand by my mana`o, as far as its i`o, its content, but I apologize for my cutting tone.
To be honest, I thought that maybe you were someone like Kenneth Konklin who was trying to infiltrate our discussions to further confuse our already confused population. When I saw that you were from Hawai`i Island and that you were 95 years old, I was humbled, even though I disagree with much of your mana`o.
E kala mai iā`u for any disrespect Iʻve shown. I hope that you accept my friend invitation as I would consider it an honor to associate and share with a Kanaka Maoli whose been around for nearly a century.
Aloha me ka ha`aha`a, me ka `oia`i`o,
