An act of unity

Las Vegas Review-Journal - - #VEGASSTRONG: HOPE AND HEALING -

The mis­sion state­ment of the “Lei of Aloha for World Peace,” from a Maui 24/7 Face­book post:

“We are One

Weav­ing to­gether ti leaves from Kauai to Hawaii Is­land

Kaupo to Keanae to Olowalu

Weav­ing love and aloha to wrap around the peo­ple of the world, the Lei of Aloha brings us to­gether to grieve, to heal, to con­nect and to lift our col­lec­tive spir­its. When we lift one, we lift all.

The Lei of Aloha is about con­nec­tion: we sit, side by side, weav­ing lei, weav­ing con­ver­sa­tion, weav­ing friend­ship.

Weav­ing leaves of ev­ery color: red, yel­low, pink, light green, dark green.

Weav­ing peo­ple: gay, straight, Hawai­ian, Asian, His­panic, Cau­casian, young, young at heart.

Once wo­ven and joined to­gether,

It is im­pos­si­ble to tell us apart

We are One”
