There’s no shortage of economic bad news in this global economy.

But we know there’s much to be thankful for about life here in Hawaii.

At Civil Beat, we’d like to give everybody the opportunity to pause and share the people and places for which they are grateful as we approach the Thanksgiving holiday.

Tell the rest of us who and what you’re grateful for — and why.

You can use video, audio, photographs or text. Just send your submission to and include your name, a short (one-sentence is fine) bio and a picture of yourself. Your work may be featured on the home page of our site.

We hope what you send helps lift the spirits of the rest of us in Hawaii.

Thank you.
