"the breath of life" calls Aloha, it's way of living and treating each other with love and respect, also hello, love and goodbye.

The flower "Biden cosmoides", it's located on the island of Kauai Hawaii.

In native Hawaii it is called "po'ola nui". These flowers are threatened by invasive weeds and brushfires.

In Hawaiian language and culture, nēnē means to cherish. Honored as Hawaii's state bird, the nēnē goose enhances the life and spirit of Hawaii.

The Aloha I use in Hawai'i Sign Language and both also the rarity flower "Biden cosmoides" and nēnē that it shall not disappear.
