Our Team Theme this year is "Live Aloha", and we think this embodies the spirit of what we're doing....
What is "Live Aloha"?
Living Aloha is the coordination of mind and heart within each person. It brings each person to the self. Each person must think and express good feelings to others.
- Akahai, kindness to be expressed with tenderness;
- Lokahi, unity, to be expressed with harmony;
- Oluolu, agreeable, to be expressed with pleasantness;
- Haahaa, humility, to be expressed with modesty;
- Ahonui, patience, to be expressed with perseverance.
“Aloha” is more than a word of greeting or farewell or a salutation. “Aloha” means mutual regard and affection and extends warmth in caring with no obligation in return.
“Aloha” is the essence of relationships in which each person is
important to every other person for collective existence.
We hope you will embrace the spirit of aloha in your everyday lives; for it is not a gift only for those who visit Hawai'i, it is a gift which can be shared throughout the world.
We hope you will support us in this goal and spread Aloha!!
