Wake Me Up When September Ends

With Labor Day marking the end of summer, we have descended into autumn for the year. 2020 has been quite the ride! It seems that we will all remember this strange year for decades to come.

Starting a new decade is quite a big deal – albeit nothing like starting a new century. There is so much possibility and excitement surrounding what’s to come… yet, reality sets in when I realize that in Hawaii we are still locked down. Our country has always enjoyed planning for the future and this season has revealed our resiliency.

Twenty years has gone so fast.

The attack on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001 shaped the 21st century in ways that few other events have been able to do. I was six years old when the twin towers fell. I would like to take the time to thank all of those who have served our country so courageously. It is because of your sacrifice that we get to live free.
