I got this message from a friend today and looked up this beautiful video. Having lived in Hawaii, then returned there once, the island still runs in my blood, even more so after watching this.
A portion of the letter:
I recorded Larry King last night and just watched it. They discussed Tim Russert's memorial service. I watched most of it. The song that played as everyone was leaving was "Over the Rainbow" by Iz, the Hawaiian singer who died at a young age from complications of obesity. His version of OTR was playing when I was in the airport in Honolulu getting ready to meet my husband. I have his CD with the recording. If you've never heard it, go to YouTUbe to listen...so different and really beautiful. Anyway...the amazing thing...and I just LOVE when things like this happen...Larry K talked about how they played OTR and then after the ceremony a huge full rainbow appeared...actually was partly a double rainbow. Wow! The same thing happened when we came back to TX after leaving HI. I was having so many mixed emotions, leaving the beauty of HI for HOT S. TX (it was Aug.) and a day or two after we got back we had a sun shower in the evening. I went outside for something and there was a double rainbow. I felt like it was just for me. :)
