Aloha Ohana, welcome back to Defend Hawaii and our weekly Weekend Recap. This weekend started out smooth, Friday, we got our first delivery for the Defend Hawaii Spring 2015 collection that will surface online and in all stores sometime this week. After shipments we made our way towards Next Door in Downtown Honolulu too support Bone Kaneshiro and the 5 Year Tribute to Japanese Hip-Hop producer Nujabes. Performing live were some awesome local acts like CNRBOY, Omega Cixx & Defend Hawaii representatives Broke Mokes.

Now we roll into the early mornings of Sunday… If you were in Kalihi that morning as well as this morning, you must already know about all the commotion. Early Sunday morning two gentleman were shot and killed by an unknown suspect. And then at 5 a.m. this morning two keiki and an older women were stabbed by another unknown suspect. (they are on their way to recovery) Prayers go out to all the ohanas that are being affected by these injustices. What is going on Hawaii? Why is violence breaking out like this in our streets? What happened to hand too hand resolutions, where is the aloha? I hope the culprits are brought to justice for their lack of compassion and understanding of life. This is not a way to Defend Hawaii. But paradise isn’t always calm breeze and palm trees. There is a lot more going on here than meets the eye. This leaves us to hope for a more aloha-filled week and weekend. Keep the aloha alive ohana and don’t let negativity bring you down.
