He pilina wehena ʻole ke aloha honua.
One’s love for the planet is an inseverable relationship.
Fitting for Earth Day, the Island of Hawaii’s Pono Pledge initiative reminds us that the pledge to our earth is simple and applicable to all of us.
I pledge to be
I will mindfully seek wonder, but not wander where I do not belong.
I will not defy death for breathtaking photos, or venture beyond safety.
Molten lava will mesmerize me, but I will not disrupt its flow.
I will not take what is not mine, leaving lava rocks and sand as originally found.
I will heed ocean conditions, never turning my back to the Pacific.
When rain falls
I will embrace the island’s aloha spirit, as it embraces me.
Lawe i ka maalea i kuonoono.
“Take Wisdom and Make it Deep.”
