Hawaii's best-known export is not sugar, pineapples, or Kona coffee, but a word: aloha. It is much more than a greeting; on the islands, it is a way of life. One islander says aloha means "Hello, goodbye, love, compassion, welcome, good wishes. It means belonging to others with a common humanity. It's defined better as a feeling in the heart than by words."
According to Answers.com, you can get the aloha feeling by:
- Respect your elders and children.
- Leave places better than you find them.
- Hold the door. Hold the elevator.
- Plant something.
- Drive with courtesy. Let others in.
- Attend an event of another culture.
- Return your shopping cart.
- Get out and enjoy nature.
- Pick up litter.
- Share with your neighbors.
- Create smiles.
Above, we have a perfect example of ALOHA.
