One Year Ago This Week

Aloha Everyone,

How our world has turned upside down from one year ago. This week in 2019, J.J. and I were in Hawaii to see our son Jeff and our daughter-in-law Jenny.

Jeff and I walked the Ala Moana Beach Park while Jenny ran the Magic Island and Ala Moana Beach Park loop. Looking back at the photos with our family and friends and the fabulous time we had, I can imagine how different things are due to the Coronavirus.

Governor Ige’s emergency proclamation requiring everyone, including residents and visitors to the state of Hawaii to a mandatory 14-days self quarantine is working. According to a friend who flew from the island of Hawaii (Big Island), Honolulu International Airport was deserted. She and her husband’s temperatures were checked. And while she was answering routine questions, her husband’s phone rang to confirm that the authorities have his correct and functioning phone number.

We look forward to the day when we can reminisce this week.

Aloha -- Cathi
