Honoring Hawaii

Then rose Hawai'i from the space of time
Arose from inside, from the inner darkness,
Then appeared the island, the land
The row of the islands of Nu'umea...

`A`ohe lokomaika`i i nele i ke pâna`i.

No kind deed has ever lacked its reward.

Hawaiians are known
for their generosity, hospitality
and warm sharing.
This giving nature is grounded in the
principle of reciprocity.
When given, the Hawaiian will give back
in equal measure or more,
be it a gift or a smile.

Aloha mai no, aloha aku;
o ka huhu ka mea e ola `ole ai.

When love is given, love should be returned;
anger is the thing that gives no life.

Hawaiians understood
the transforming power of aloha.
Love begets love,
and enmity produces enmity.
Anger only serves to hurt the angry,
causing emotional upset,
which impairs mental,
physical, and spiritual well-being.
