For some Hawaiians, the honu (turtle) represents the ‘Aumakua (family guardian spirit). This was taken from , The Little Book of Aloha, by Remata Provenzano,Mutual Publishing, 1215 Center St., Suite 210, Honolulu, Hawaii, 96816.
I am so shattered by the tsunami news in Japan that my heart aches and I look for some comfort…The turtle image appeared to me in my head as I grieve for the folks in Japan. I share with you my hurting heart..May the Great Spirit God from above be with all those that suffer. My prayers are with you.
