For me, when I working my job at Safeway and I find people’s stuff, like wallets or phone, I gotta return ‘em. When you find something good, return ‘em and get respect. I tell myself to turn it in. It doesn’t belong to me, it belongs to the people, it has their identification, their life, in it.
With us, it’s our life too. It’s a good thing. I no like for me, to put my name on top, I no like the reward. Do the good thing, not bad thing. Some years, what goes around comes around. If you find someone’s wallet or identity, it’s proud for you, they might cry, yes, I would cry if I lost something that is close to me, but when it gets turned in, you happy, you proud. That’s respect. You get your own respect back. If you give your aloha, you get ‘em back. Ku Kia’i Mauna.
