Sky Blossom: Diaries of the Next Greatest Generation
SKY BLOSSOM: DIARIES OF THE NEXT GREATEST GENERATION (Thurs., Nov. 11, 8:30 pm) highlights the challenges that five young individuals from communities across the United States, including Kauaʻi, face caring for loved ones who are veterans, particularly during the ongoing pandemic. This film shares a raw, uplifting view of the lives of 24.5 million children and millennials who step forward as caregiving heroes.
We often hear about veterans suffering from PTSD, drug addiction, or homelessness. They volunteered to meet the country’s needs, but has the country met their needs? Join the discussion on INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAIʻI (Thurs., Nov. 11, 7:30 pm). You can phone in a question during the program or leave us a comment on our Facebook livestream. INSIGHTS also streams live on
This week’s episode of HIKI NŌ (Tues., Nov. 9, 7:30 pm), hosted by Hilo High School junior Camrenn Cabalar, features a Highlands Intermediate student who shares her lifelong passion for go kart racing. Also, students from Kauaʻi High School take a look behind the curtain at a local theater production of MOANA Jr.
Cultural practitioner Pohaku Stone returns to WHAT SCHOOL YOU WENT? to talk about the art of crafting and riding on wood surfboards, and the effect that Carissa Moore and her Olympic gold medal win has had on the sport.
Listen anywhere you get your podcasts, including Apple and Spotify.
On the Pacific island of Guadalcanal in 1942, the famed 1st Marine Division — the oldest, largest and most decorated division of the U.S. Marine Corps — defeated Japanese forces in a turning point of WWII. 1ST TO FIGHT: PACIFIC WAR MARINES (Thurs., Nov. 11, 10:00 pm), documents the experiences of 1st Marine Division veterans who took part in the historic fight.
WBCN AND THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION (Sat., Nov. 13, 8:00 pm) is the untold story of the radical underground radio station WBCN, set against the profound social, political and cultural changes that took place during the late-1960s and early-70s.

Final thought… On November 11, 1919, President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed the observance of Armistice Day, as the anniversary of Germany’s surrender in World War I. Armistice Day switched to Veterans Day in 1954 to include honors for veterans of all wars. 11-11 will always be a special day for our country.
The numbers 1111 are also special in numerology. Some see it as a sign of positive energy and new beginnings, others make a wish when they see 11:11 on a clock. My wife and I screenshot the time when we see it on our phones, then send the picture to each other as our way to say “I love you.” It may be silly but it doesn’t hurt to see good on 11-11… or any day… or any hour for that matter.
It is a choice we are fortunate to have in our lives… thanks in large part… to our veterans.
Mahalo nui,
