All we wanted was a nice day at Oneloa with da ohana. And it was cherry fine until a few boys decided to ruin the day. Though all parties probably contributed to the altercation, it didn’t have to get out of hand. Yeah, you young bruddahs are raging with hormones and alcohol (and probably other mind-altering substances) but that’s no excuse. You weren’t strong enough to embody aloha and just walk away and allow everyone to have a fun day at the beach with friends. No, one of you had to sucker punch a guy. Then, when the guy was down, your buddy kicked him in the head while another buddy–standing off to the side–threw a large rock at him. Very tough! Especially when people came to the aid of the beaten guy, you took off running like scared little girls. So mahalo for scaring my young kids, ruining our day and trashing the aloha spirit some of us work so hard to uphold.
