Tomorrow, November 28, is the Independence Day of Hawaii nei, and it will be the fiftieth year of our living as an Independent Nation, and being recognized by the enlightened nations of the world. This is the jubilee year; however, the plunderers believe that they hold the steering paddle and that we will not have a joyful jubilee on that day. What of that; let us be patient, for there will come a day that the lahui will be joyful and be pleased to no end. Hold your breaths! It will come!
