Malo lelei! (Tongan) I hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day!
This week has been a wonderful week and we have been super busy!
Today was the highlight of the week though! Since today was Memorial Day we went up to the Punch Bowl Cemetery, the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific. The ceremony was amazing and the Mayor of Honolulu, Kirk Caldwell, spoke as well as Admiral Harry B. Harris, Jr. Commander of the U.S. Pacific Fleet. It was really cool to meet the Commander of the entire Pacific Fleet of the United States Navy! It was also really cool because they placed leis on every one of the 55,000 graves for the fallen at Punchbowl.
Today really made an impact on me and how big of a role Hawaii has played in the freedom we enjoy every day! I am truly proud to be an American and to be able to see these places that have played such a role in our nation’s history is an honor.
I hope everyone has a wonderful week and everything is going well! I am growing and learning each and every day here in Hawaii. I have learned so much and have so much more to learn. I have been truly blessed in the past few months and to see all the blessings that are coming to me and my family. I will send more pics of Punchbowl next week! Love and miss you all! Until we meet again. ALOOOHA!
