Sirens, brochures won’t help

Regarding the Emergency Management Agency’s advice regarding emergency preparedness in the event of a North Korea missile strike: Just forget the siren and the brochure. The reality is, if there is a missile strike, just kiss your ass goodbye.

Pushing things this far, testosterone-missile wise (both North Korea and the U.S.), is a really huge mistake.

Roadways are dangerous

There are two intersections off Kaumualii Highway in Eleele that pose an accident waiting to happen.

Laulea Street and Eleele Road both cross into the low-income housing and the newly residential area. At those intersections the Eleele School children cross daily to get home.

Although there is a crosswalk on Kaumualii Highway from Eleele Road, there isn’t a crosswalk on Laulea Street onto Kaumualii Highway. State DOT and Mayor Carvalho should make it a priority and to expedite signs, flashing lights, tweeters and a crosswalk (Laulea Street) on both roadways onto Kaumualii Highway.

Also, that blind curve at Hanapepe Road and Kaumualii Highway needs what is mentioned above, too. Westside is Kauai, too! Our schoolchildren and any pedestrian using those areas to cross from one side to the other should be protected in those areas.

Again, state DOT and mayor, expedite these safety issues now!

Hawaii can be God’s guiding light

Consider the positive global impacts, if the U.S. would relinquish control and reinstate the Hawaiian government. Leading byexample, it’d provide invaluable precedents.

Benefits would be immeasurable, implementing God’s ideas for distribution of land, governance and integrating peoples.

How can we expect Israel to work out their differences in that hostile environment, if we can’t conceive of a reasonablesolution for restoring the Hawaiian Nation?

Like Israelis, Hawaiians identify with ancestral covenants. David Malo wrote, “Perhaps these people are those spoken of in theWord of God as ‘the lost sheep of the House of Israel.’”

Biblical principles for restoration are culturally appropriate. The majority of Hawaiian ancestors professed to believe in the“living God” and called him “Father.”

Queen Lili‘uokalani wrote, “He will keep His promise, and will listen to the voices of His Hawaiian children lamenting for theirhomes …”

She died before God’s promise was fulfilled to reinstate the nation of Israel. Lili‘uokalani’s ardent faith in God to restoreHawaii lives on.

Hawaiian ancestors along with the forefathers of the United States set the stage for us to act now to show the world God’s wayfor restoration.
