Aloha Friday Photo: Rainbow Presence

Mahalo to Mark Dietz from Ridgefield, Washington for sharing this great rainbow photo with us for Aloha Friday Photos.

Mark took this shot from the Waikiki Banyan facing mauka on January 7, 2017. He shared this touching insight into this rainbow as well as the meaningful purpose of this trip to Oahu:

“We were on a trip to take my father-in-law Al to his final resting place at Punchbowl. We felt his presence everywhere we went that trip, including in this beautiful rainbow.”

If you aren’t familiar with Punchbowl, it’s the National Cemetery of the Pacific, where men and women who served in the armed forces are laid to rest.

This is Memorial Day weekend. Although, the long-standing (70 years) ceremonies at Punchbowl are cancelled this year due COVID-19, we can still take the time to remember the the service to our country and the many sacrifices that were made.

Have a safe Aloha Friday!
