I have so much to be grateful for: friends, family, good health, a comfortable life living in a free country. And you, my cherished friends who first came as guests. You are the source of so much of my gratitude.
I intend on being grateful for all this today, and, as I stay mindful: each day of the year.
Blessings today and always!
Yesterday, the state of Hawaii just made history and became the 16th state to grant full marriage equality to same-sex couples.
Hawaii Governor Abercrombie signed the gay marriage bill into law. Now, all couples in our state will have equal rights to marry, and equal protection under the law. This is an important step forward for Hawaii, and the LGBT community as a whole. The overwhelming support for this common-sense legislation showed our legislators that it was high time for true equality for all of our friends, family, and neighbors.
We at Hale ‘Nalo support all of the wonderful people we know who deserve nothing less than full equality.
