Lanterns Floating Hawaii

It was an amazing gathering of 50,000 people at Ala Moana Beach in Oahu. People from various backgrounds gathered to send candle lit lanterns into the ocean in honor of their deceased loved ones.

I felt enveloped by glowing comfort as I stood in waste high water, surrounded by lanterns with my future wife.
