One year later, Senator Inouye's legacy lives on

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) — One year ago today, Hawaii mourned the loss of Senator Daniel K. Inouye, an inspirational war hero who served in World War II and later became the highest-ranking Asian American politician in United States history.

yesterday, members of Hawaii's congressional delegation issued statements of remembrance in honor of the late Sen. Inouye.

Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard:

As we take time today to remember our beloved Senator Daniel Inouye, we must honor his legacy of selfless servant leadership and life-long commitment to working in the aloha spirit. His humility and deep compassion for people in Hawai‘i and around the world continues to serve as an inspiration to me and the countless lives he impacted.

Senator Inouye sacrificed so much for our nation in the face of tremendous prejudice during World War II. He believed in our country and its greatness, and worked hard every day of his career to put others before himself. With his deep understanding and appreciation of the aloha spirit, he showed us each how to lead with our hearts. While we celebrate his life and legacy today, I am truly grateful for Senator Inouye's passionate work on behalf of the people of Hawai‘i and selfless life of service to us all.
