Today, across our country, people are holding events to remember this day in American history. It is filled with emotion as we remember the more than 2,400 lives lost.
A quote from the famous Hawaiian philosopher, Pilahi Paki says it well, “The world would turn to Hawaii in its search for world peace because Hawaii has Aloha, (meaning ‘hello’ or ‘peace’ in the Hawaiian language).”
Let this day remind us of the importance to seek to understand and to pursue peace.
