Quote of the Day

I have always believed that civil unions respect our diversity, protect people's privacy, and reinforce our core values of equality and aloha.

I appreciate all the time and effort invested by those who shared their thoughts and concerns regarding civil unions in Hawaii. This has been an emotional process for everyone involved, but that process is now ended. Everyone has been heard; all points of view respected.

For me, this bill represents equal rights for all the people of Hawaii.

– Hawaii Governor Neil Abercrombie
