The Pledge of Aloha


So I found this pledge hanging on the wall at Arnold’s Beach Bar, aka My Favorite Office Ever, and I love it. So I’m sharing it.

As far as I can tell, this pledge was begun due to a film called Kumu Hina: A Place in the Middle. There is another “Aloha Pledge” that is more environmental in nature.

I love this one, The Pledge of Aloha, because it seems to skew hugely to the meaning of Aloha as I understand it.

Anyway, here is the pledge:

I believe that every person has a role in society

And deserves to be included and treated with

Respect in their family, school, and community.

I believe that every one should be free to

Express what is truly in their heart and mind,

Whether male, female, or in the middle.

I believe that every person should be able to

Practice their cultural traditions, and to know and

Perpetuate the wisdom of their ancestors for

Future generations.

I believe these values are embodied in Aloha:

Love, honor, and respect for all.

Therefore, I pledge to live Aloha in everything I do,

and to inspire people of all ages to do the same.
