Ali`i Nui Mō`ī Edmund K. Silva, Jr., 12-10-14… “King’s Message About Lowering the U.S. Flag (and raising the Hawaiian Kingdom Flag) at UH Hilo”


“While the action of lowering the flag was taken without my knowledge or consent, I commend the courage and honesty of those who have taken this action. I also urge those who have responded to this action in anger to both study the history and learn why the Kingdom still exists as an occupied country and to take note of the respectful manner in which this action was carried out.

“What makes us who we are — is our allegiance to an idea that articulated our history of listening to the spiritual voice within with aloha. Today we continue a never-ending journey to bridge these living and moving philosophical truths with the realities of our time. For history tells us that while these inalienable rights may be self-evident and absolute, they’ve never been self-executing; that while freedom is a gift from Heavenly Father, it must be safeguarded by His people here on Earth. We, as the human family, must come together to right the substantial wrongs not just here in Hawai’i but all over the world. Let us begin here and let our example resonate around the planet bringing the healing that is so desperately needed.”
