A group of classmates packed and fulfilled the early orders for our reunion book today. It was my honor to design the 164-page volume. God designed the cover shot of a Kaaawa sunrise. I just happened to be lucky enough to capture it with my iPhone!

Women's March participants at the Hawaii State Capitol: Pete, Perrin, Rebekah, Ayla

Mom and Dad had to work, so Papa (DH) and Popo (I) brought Perrin and Ayla with them to the Women’s March for the history-making demonstration the day after the 45th President was inaugurated. The 5-year-old was engaged. Her older sister, who reads signage well, seemed to take it all in with a guarded attitude. We marched in solidarity with millions of others who marched on Washington, D.C., and around the world.

Excerpt from the Mission Statement of the Women’s March on O‘ahu: “In the spirit of democracy and honoring the champions of human rights, dignity, and justice who have come before us, we join in solidarity to show presence in numbers too great to ignore, to elevate and advance issues that are important to women, families, children, and communities.”

January 21 is my mother’s birthday. If she were living, she would have turned 100 yesterday!
