I am always proud when Hawaii people do well at the national and international level like Guy Kawasaki, a businessman, entrepreneur in technology, and author. He helped develop Apple in the 1980s, co-founded Garage Technology Ventures, a venture capital firm that invests in technology start-ups, and Alltop.com, an online magazine rack. Guy Kawasaki’s father is Duke Kawasaki, a former Hawaii State Senator. Currently, he is the special advisor to the CEO of Motorola, a Google Company.
I just read an article on him in the Iolani School Bulletin – Volume LV, Number 1, Fall 2013, and his quote stood out: “My parents taught me two very important principles: First, don’t take crap from anyone. Second, that I have a moral obligation to treat everyone fairly and nicely. Noblesse oblige if you will. I also believe there is a karmic scoreboard, so if you screw people, you’ll get screwed. With these three principles, I’m good to go.” – Guy Kawasaki –
At about 2:00 A.M. on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 28, 2013, I finished my 8th draft of my writing project. I think I will let it be for now and start working on my 2nd writing project.

This evening, November 13, 2013 from 6:30 PM to 8:45 PM, I attended the Pearl City Lions Club meeting at Pearl Country Club. I was their guest speaker and talked about lobbying the legislature. I shared my experience as a legislator and now as a lobbyist for the Department of the Prosecuting Attorney of the City and County of Honolulu. They presented me a certificate of appreciation and some members gave me raffle tickets and their snacks that they won. I had a nice time.
I don’t know if I could ever accept death so I race against it every single day.
Every single one of us can play a role in bettering our world just by being nice to everyone we come into contact, every single day.
In my early twenties, I put aside my work in popular culture and focused on mainly law and politics, but I have come back full circle to the arts, as I feel it can best reach into the souls of the human race since too often, the clouds of anger blinds our efforts in law and politics.
