We’ve all heard about “The Aloha Spirit”. Usually it brings a smile to our face as we conjure up images of being on vacation in a tropical paradise, where people are happy and nice, and we’re feeling carefree. It used to be funny to me, because it just seemed like that’s how people behaved when they were entertaining tourists. Well, I found out that my assumption was not true at all. Aloha’s a real thing, and oddly enough it’s even an official law in the state of Hawaii that’s intended to inform personal conduct.

A: Akahai       Kindness, to be expressed with tenderness
