She embodies the chaos of pouring rain

Tears flood her mind, drowning out light

The people she loves clear the dark clouds from her mind and lead her into the sun

There, outside, in nature, she is truly happy

She is the color of honey, golden and enlightened

She lays at peace in a forest of friends and loved ones.

Her contagious laughter and kind words fertilize the ground beneath her

Trees sprout and grow luscious in her presence.

(Bio by Lily Washburn)

Every day, at 1:57 p.m. school ends and students rush to the bus stop right in front of Kalani. Due to COVID-19, bus drivers only allow a certain number of students on the bus at a time, which varies between the size of the bus and who drives it. Oftentimes, students will walk almost half a mile to the bus stop located near Waialae Iki Park just to get on the earliest bus possible, while others stay roughly 30 minutes after school to catch the next bus, just to avoid the crowds and risk of infection.
