I grew up in a small two bedroom house with my seven brothers and sisters, my Mom and Dad and my maternal grandmother.

We learned to just be together and I attribute our closeness today to those early days in the small house in Kailua.My mother and grandmother taught us that...

She clenched her sweaty fists so tightly that she left wrinkle imprints on the sheets. She had been fighting since the night before, but with such sternness she wouldn't show any signs of weakness. The perspiration streaks down her face were evidence of having fought through a world of struggle; in fact, it was a fight to survive. She began to feel the coolness and the quietness of the room.
