ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attacks. In a statement, a group that is linked to militant extremists, blames Belgium for participating in the fight against terrorist and later stated that several of their soldiers detonated explosives at the airport and train station. 

It’s sad to hear this kind of tragic news, from half a world away. With Hawaii being the melting pot of ethnicities, it is very common for someone to relate to these events that are happening around the world. Hawaii, having a variety of ethnicities also makes us stronger. Being a small island chain, we can only depend on each other and ourselves. Tragic events like these will only make us stronger in unity.
