Stuck on Aloha



ALOHA...that sticks with you.

In November 2017, visitors to Hawai‘i’s Pearl City Shopping Center were greeted by a wall. A wall not meant to separate, but to draw together. A place designed for thoughtful pauses, not to halt journeys. A place where With Aloha, Love Lives. Dubbed the Messages of Life WALL, what started as a modest project took off rapidly.

Soon, the wall was awash in a riot of colorful sticky notes bearing messages of faith, hope, longing, despair, courage, laughter and love. Compiled by community manager Barry Villamil, STUCK ON ALOHA showcases more than a dozen exceptional individuals and hundreds of notes that convey the heartfelt aloha found at the WALL.
