I never really appreciated my home until I left for college. The beauty was an everyday occurrence for me so I didn’t think much of it. But I miss these Hawaiian sunsets and the ocean more than anything. Oregon holds its own special beauty but the views on Kauai are incredible. Anyway, Happy Earth Day to everyone. Remember, Malama da A’ina (Hawaiian for Respect The Land). This is your home and its beauty won’t last if we carry on with all of these industrial problems and littering. I thank God for creating this planet and for giving me the eyes to appreciate it. He also gave me a craving to travel and see all of the wonders of the world. I can’t wait until that is possible.
