Being of a young hawaiian woman in this day and time, how do i see this great state of love and aloha and its ppl?
I see it as a beautiful place to be, in my eyes i see beauty, love and lots of work to be done.
For our ppl, all with different ideas and different solutions how do we come together as one to
BE OF ONE MIND, ONE SOUL, ONE MISSION...TO MALAMA THE OHANA, MALAMA THE AINA, AND MALAMA EACH OTHER...WITH OUT HURTING...DEMEANING..AND CUTTING DOWN OUR VALUES AS A HAWAIIAN PEOPLE AND HERITAGE.
I speak from my heart, my mother was a awesomem powerful, compassionate and full of passion for the hawaiian movement long back then. before mililani trask came about and many others. She sacrificed her family time just to start the steps to get our aina back....back when i was young.. i felt cheated.. she was never home but at meetings and hooponopono with other hawaiian groups.. who had issues. do i feel bitter now as i sit here thinkin of the memories of having my siblings take care of me while my mom was here in oahu.. at kawaihao... protesting at the capital...many nights of longing for her... back then i did. i did not understand.. ppl like her had to start and get the ball rolling so our generation can continue what they started.
i am grateful for her hard work, dedication and commitment to push the hawaiian movement ..culture and ppl. for our future. MOM MAHALO NUI LOA KAKOU E ALOHA AU IA OE !...
