“HOLD THE VISION“
written by Jason W. Schwartz, Executive Director of MAMA, delivering a vision
Sharing the vision of the world in which we choose to live- this is the most important single answer we want to convey to the people of the world. If we choose to change the paradigm under which the political system exists, we MUST keep our sights on how we want the world to be and must work to take ideas for what the future can be, and act from this vision in all we do, no matter how challenging it may be to do so.
We hold a vision of a world where we have all the answers for all the people. We can have development and responsible environmental choices in the same programs. We can cooperate and make lots of money, so often the commodity we all need in this world, and bring the bickering to an end.
We can foster goodwill and economic assistance between the large economic powerhouses and environmental progressives, like me. We can marry the old and wise ideas and traditions of a past Hawaii with the high tech futuristic solutions of today…and tomorrow.

It is only through cooperation and mutual benefit that we, as a local, statewide, national, and international community, can hope to grow and prosper:…with a balanced overall plan –
a plan to RE-GENERATE NEW LEADERS capable to continue the actions of that plan –
a plan that requires the ACTION and DEDICATION of its people,
a plan of VISION –
a plan of PEACE –
a plan of FAITH –
a plan of COMPASSION –
a plan of GOD –
in other words,
a plan of
