MAHALO to Dr. Jamie Boyd and her nursing students manning the first aid station and the nursing school tent at the Windward Hoolaulea. Mahalo also to Kaui and Kelona, who kept an eye on me while I waited to feel better.
Kaui even taught me how to make palaia (Hawaiian kendama). As Dr. Boyd tended to me, I knew that I was in capable, caring hands. All of the nursing students were caring and professional. Thank you to all of you. -- Darren
