I live on the beautiful island of Kauai. Unfortunately, an influx of technology (progress?) has encouraged a mindset that is not always conducive with the genuine, kind, loving, giving-for-the-sake-of-giving way of thinking and living that really embraces the aloha spirit...especially when it comes to business....any time a person has to say "Don't take it personal; it's just business" or has to rationalize anything they have said or done, there is an element of 'wrong' involved. Common decency never has to be explained. Acts of good never need excuses. Right is right. Wrong is wrong. Life throws us some bad pitches and deals us some crummy hands....sometimes the "right thing" is more hidden than at other times...but it is always there, and ultimately we always know what that right thing is....if only we would all start paying more attention to our consciences, even when it may not be quite as profitable, everyone would benefit and the aloha spirit would become as front-and-center as it was when I moved here 33 years ago.

We've all had people in our lives who have made a positive impact on us. A parent or grandparent, a sibling who was there for us, or maybe even just a guy who shines shoes for a living? Whoever they are, tell us their story so they can inspire us even more.Tell Us Your Story All Everyday Hero Stories
