Frankly being Frank

One of the many lessons that people can learn from the late Frank Fasi is activism. It's about getting involved. Sure, he ruffled feathers along the way; actually he plucked a few feathers now and again, but he did it with the mantra first and foremost that it was always for the people. The number of regular folk who didn't know him personally but had nice things to say about what he did for them in one form or another speaks volumes about what a publicly elected leader can only hope is his or her lasting legacy.

So where are the Frank Fasis of today or tomorrow in Hawaii? Where are the people who will stand up and maybe even take a hit standing up for what's right for our people, even if it sometimes seems like it hurts the people or might not be a popular stance this week? Where are the people who will do what it takes to ensure that we have a great future for our keiki and ourselves?

If you believe those people are already in office, then let's hope some monumental things change and/or get done at the city and state level this spring. If you don't think these types of people are in place, perhaps you can help push these vital visionaries to come forward or do your part to be heard. Everyone's got a little Frank Fasi in ‘em. Let's hope we see it here more often, and real soon. Think about it…
