You can deface and rip our signs, we will just make more. You can bulldoze our ahu, we will just rebuild. You can arrest us in prayer, but we will continue to pray. You can criminalize our culture and identity, but we will never change - for we are the change. You can try to incite infighting and provoke reaction, but we will not take the bait. We will stand with each other in love and have only aloha in our hearts, for that is the only way. Ku kia'i mauna!
