Comments from former participants:

I appreciate all of the ‘ike & mana‘o shared. The resources are plentiful and will be so useful. I am so thankful for what I have learned and shared with my family and will continue to share with my family. Mahalo!

    Wow, everything was particularly meaningful in some capacity.  The options and variety of information was great.  It was all inspirational!!

The discussion board helped me in broadening the base of learning; the willingness to share and so much aloha one with another and even though we were strangers, by reading and replying to some of them, the Aloha generated through the wires of electricity and technology was felt and we were strangers no more!  mahalo nui loa to all!

    I learned so much in the course.  The information provided to me was amazing.  The discussion boards were the best.  Everyone had something insightful to say and opened my eyes to new things.
