Obama Day, Hawaiian Style
One viewpoint out of the Millions of views of Obama Inauguration Day...
My nephew attends the Punahou school in Honolulu which is the school that Obama went to. (BTW, it's nice having a relative that lives in Hawaii :-) ). There was a big celebration at the school in honor of their now famous former student. My sister watched the Inaugural parade on TV and noted that the Punahou School Band was the first band at the head of the line up. She said that Obama gave them the Shaka sign in greeting.. Gotta love it, he's probably the first US President for whom this is a natural gesture. A google image search of 'Obama shaka' will yield up a bunch of pictures of Obama giving the Shaka !
