In Hawai’i, it is routine to use the word Aloha.

We say it as we kiss hello & goodbye. We offer it as an expression of love & warm-wishes for our beloveds. We use it to mean a variety of sayings & meanings…

Yet “Aloha” is more than a word… “Aloha” is more than an expression… “Aloha” is a way of life!!!
