Akaka inducted into the Aloha Order of Merit

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) Hawaii honored longtime U.S. Sen. Daniel Akaka on Monday by inducting him into the Aloha Order of Merit, an honor reserved for people who have given extraordinary service to the state.

Standing in House chambers at the Hawaii State Capitol, the recently retired lawmaker sang "The Rainbow Song" as his sons accompanied him on guitars.

Akaka said the people of Hawaii have a responsibility to share the spirit of aloha. He said that includes sharing aloha in ways that affect foreign policy.

Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie said the significance of the award was shown by the presence of all living Hawaii governors at the ceremony.
