Hawai’i is a multicultural society whose people deeply respect
the values of the first people who first settled our islands, long ago.
A life of forgiveness is demonstrated clearly by traditional
Hawaiian culture, through the spirit of Aloha (welcome, love)
and the practice of Ho`oponopono (balance, understanding).
We support forgiveness in all its religious, artistic,
personal, judicial, educational, social and political forms.
Hawai'i is an example for the world, both small in size
and large in significance, of what is true and possible.
