49 folks from Maui got together and worked non-stop for 12 hours a day for nearly a week to complete a 49 foot ti leaf lei made of 49 strands to represent the 49 people whose lives were claimed the horrific night of June 12, 2016.

“It represents joy, love, and healing and peace, that’s what we’re hoping it will do for everyone here,” said one of those chosen to present the lei.

About the Author:

I’ve lived Hawaii since the mid ‘80s when I moved here at the age of 21. I arrived site-unseen in Honolulu with zero contacts and about $5k in savings. I worked from nearly zero and today Hawaii has given me the greatest gifts in the world in all aspects: spiritually, financially, romantically (married since early ‘90s w/ 2 children), and most important, peace. My goal with this site is to share the magic of this Land of Aloha and help others who are on a similar quest.
