My other Memorial Day remembrance was Lantern Floating Hawaii. This has been a tradition in Hawaii since memorial day 1999 and is led by her Holiness Shinso Ito, Head Priest of Sinnyo-en in Japan. It is free and open to the public and the lanterns symbolize our wish to remember our ancestors. The ceremony welcomes all cultures, beliefs and perspectives to unite as “Many Rivers, One Ocean”.  Watching the thousands of lanterns floating in the ocean is just a moving experience and if you haven’t been to one of these I recommend you put it on the calendar for Memorial Day next year. We will talk more about it and provide some tips in the coming days.
