This week Maui Youth Now holds a special show for the victims and survivors of the Parkland Florida shooting. Amazon Jordan opens with a short news story, we see video clips from the Florida Lei of Aloha, Mauiʻs March For Our Lives and Concert for Our Lives, then sit down with three Maui youth who participated in bringing the 3 mile Lei to Florida to talk about their experience and perform a song written by Anthony. Powerful and sobering.
Akakū and Nisei Veterans Memorial Center present the first installment of "Our Heroes". This premiere episode features 2 Maui Nisei Veterans of World War II sharing their stories and experiences, some for the first time, in front of a standing room only crowd at the NVMC facility in Kahului, Maui, Hawaii. This short film uses actual archival footage from World War II to help visualize the memories that these Nisei Veterans are recounting. Archival footage is courtesy of Archive.org. In addition, the daughter of a Nisei Veteran recounts her father's difficulty with PTSD, as well as some of the stories she remembers him telling. This presentation was generously supported by Maui's Sons & Daughters of the Nisei Veterans.
