Several of them show the Natatorium as it was meant to be: A living memorial to Hawai’i’s honored war dead, a lively, active fun place where families and athletes and all of us could enjoy the freedom preserved for us by our warriors’ sacrifices.
For so many years, the Natatorium truly was the place to be.
It can be again. It should be again. For so many reasons: Because of the debt of honor we owe to the war dead and our veterans. Because of the Natatorium’s contributions to our history and culture. Because any other choice would be financially, legally and environmentally irresponsible.
And just because it would be a great place to be.
