Thousands of families, loved ones and friends across the State of Hawai‘i will come together on Thanksgiving for food and fellowship – but also to give thanks for all that we cherish.
We will reflect on our lives and communities and take stock of what we are grateful for – our freedoms and the ability to pursue our dreams.
Let us remember those who are giving selflessly so that the less fortunate can put their worries aside if for only a day, to celebrate Thanksgiving. Let’s remember those who are stationed around the world, standing guard, protecting our country. And let’s not forget their families and loved ones at home.
This kind of sacrifice is what Hawai‘i residents and all Americans have always done – come together as one ‘ohana to do what must be done for the sake of a better tomorrow.
My administration and I are committed to working toward a better tomorrow. We’ve got to do it as one people – striving to offer our children the best education possible; a responsible and transparent government and a healthy economy that runs on clean energy. Together, we can create a place that future generations will choose to call home.
Happy Thanksgiving from our ‘ohana to yours.
