A Christmas Message from our ohana to yours

We are the world. This year, as we are driven to our knees, and we fight to rise there is only one thing that will unite us in the battle to keep our dignity.
That thing is hope. As we express joy, hope is the enevitable aftermath. We all do have hope. But there is one thing that we must do to have it.

Recognize that we are all part of this world, and interdependent on the salvation and survival of one another.

In our home, Christmas is never about trees, lights or presents. We very rarely have those. We celebrate a spirit that comes from the pausing of the world, if only for the briefest moment to acknowledge something greater than themselves.

Each other.

Aoha to the world.

Ke 'Ao Nani. (The Beautiful World)

Anne, Kanani, and Kaulana
