Hawaii's Creed

          A   L   O   H   A  !            
 Duke Kahanamoku, 
Prometheus of Modern Surfing

" In Hawaii, 

we greet friends, 

loved ones 

or strangers 

with Aloha, 

which means love.  

Aloha is the key word 

to the universal spirit 

of real hospitality, 

which makes Hawaii 


as the world's center 

of understanding 

and fellowship. 

Try meeting 

or leaving people 

with Aloha. 

You'll be surprised 

by their reaction. 

 I believe it 

and it is my creed. 

Aloha to you."

Duke Paoa Kahanamoku

        Thank You!      cloudia

Hawaii's creed could be, should be adopted more widely. World wide would be good.

I will admit Aloha sounds much more mellifluous to the ear than the usual Detroit greeting or parting gesture.

Love the purple curly hibiscus. The one I planted, shipped from Kauai, was called Cajun Blue, but I don't know if it's going to pop up in Kansas. Some other ones have, but yellow, whites, and bluesies aren't so common. Aloha, DrumMajor
