Stuck on Aloha

With Aloha, Love Lives

Stuck on Aloha delivers within its pages a collection of inspirational stories and messages from people who literally stuck their thoughts—their gifts of aloha—on the Messages of Life WALL at the Pearl City Shopping Center in central O‘ahu. Thanks to these individuals, aloha is passed along, transferred from each person to the WALL and then freely given, with love, to the next person who comes along.

I have read thousands of posted messages that have profoundly enhanced my perspective on life and guided me toward making a positive, compassionate difference in the world with aloha in my heart. Making the selections was not easy, but I hope that you will find inspiration within the 260 messages—and the eighteen individuals—I picked to represent Love, Joy, Happiness, Hope, Healing, Courage, Pride, Compassion, Kindness, ‘Ohana (family) and Keiki (children).
