”’*Editor’s note: The Grassroot Institute of Hawaii requested that all lawmakers write down their vision for Hawaii over the next 20 years. Here is the vision submitted by Hawaii County Mayor Harry Kim.”’
When asked by the Grassroot Institute of Hawaii to state my vision for the next 20 years, or to picture in
my mind how people will live, interact, and pursue happiness some 20 years
from now, it is indeed a very difficult thing to do.
If it is based on a vision of hope and what I wish for, I envision this
world a better place because of people’s care for each other.
If it is based on the harsh realities of what has happened and fear of
what is happening, it is a vision of so many people without care except
I choose to hope for a better place.
