May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Every parent has a dream for their children. For many, they dream for their children to find something in life that they’ll love, and do it with all their heart and soul. I come from a very business oriented family. It was something of a shocker for my parents when I told them all those many years ago that I wanted to be a doctor and not continue the family business. That task has mostly fallen on the shoulders of my brother these days. It took a while for them to accept the fact that I would never ever change my mind.
Every parent has a dream for their children. It just so happens that Sui’s is for her children to stop living for hers, but for their own.

It’ll hit anyone hard when they hear that the place they’ve come to call home is being closed down. It’s already a difficult thing to be forced to move, to make such a drastic change in life. You try so hard to make a new life for yourself in a new environment, and when you start to finally feel at home it, the rug gets pulled under you. Madame manager must have her reasons, but it no doubt comes as a rather depressing revelation to Ohana and everyone else in the inn that the place that they call home (or second home for that matter) is closing its doors after so many years.
It shouldn’t be surprising of course that anyone would want to defend their home.
