What Aloha Forward Means to People in Our Community

“Once I opened myself to the people they opened themselves to me and that’s when I realized the spirit of aloha. It was life-changing for me. It’s a powerful love and pride in yourself, your community, your ohana. Unconditional love that transcended anything I had ever known. You don’t have to live in the islands to live aloha and send the aloha forward. It lives in you no matter where you go.”
