mahalo, mr president – Luanne has posted a comment!

Honolulu Star Advertiser:

Dear Mr President,

I am so honored and in awe knowing you are staying just minutes from my home, viewing the same scenery and skyline and hopefully relaxing and enjoying our beautiful island. You belong here because you really do employ the “aloha spirit”.

So, mahalo, and continue to spread the aloha spirit throughout the world. Winning the Nobel Peace Prize proves, at least to other countries, how able you are to reach around the world and show respect, compassion and the willingness to strive for world peace. This should continue to be a strong focal point, as cooperation is the answer to all that is wrong in this world. Please continue to embrace unity.

You are tackling so many issues and it is beginning to show in many ways. So regardless of what the critics say, maintain the kindness and connection that we islanders call the “aloha spirit”, and the world will truly be a better place.

Luanne Webster, Kaneohe

Thank you graciouslady for letting me know about the letter  😉
