I have an amazing group of friends who have become part of our family. The Hawaiians have a perfect word for such a thing: 'ohana. One of our 'ohana is in battle and I wanted to create an emblem for all of us to wear our love and support. The hippo is Clem's favorite animal because it lives amongst many other animals peacefully. They will, however, be fierce when necessary, even known to take out alligators if need be. It is time to be fierce.
