I grew up in Hawaii and graduated from Barack Obama's high school, Punahou, a bit earlier (1970), so I am so, so proud of our Hawaiian boy. I am having an inauguration party at my home in Mystic, Connecticut, with a Hawaiian theme because that is my connection with the new president.
We are having Hawaiian-style food and pupus, listening to Hawaiian music, maybe a little hula and celebrating a proud and memorable day with friends. Of course, pictures of Barack body-surfing at Sandy Beach will be on display! Aloha!
