Aloha Kakou,The Hawaii International Forgiveness Day will honor our Queen Lili’uokalani as a model of forgiveness on August 4th, 2:00pm to 4:00pm at the State Capitol Rotunda.
Queen Lili’uokalani was a woman ahead of her time. She is still relevant and her message so critical today. Our Queen chose to rise above all the huge challenges and make a choice for the best interests of all her people. She did not to go to war and took the high road. In our souls, we know this to be true and that is why we love, honor and appreciate her for all that she stands for. When we choose to move past our own anger and hurt, we can gain a higher level of effectiveness in our work.
