Author and retired school counselor, Steve Chinen now has more time to spread the deepest meanings of rainbows, Aloha, and Daruma Dolls through his workbooks, Big Brothers and other outreach. Steve’s book “Rainbows in Me: Values of Aloha” shows children the concept of diverse peoples living in harmony, achieved through Aloha values in Hawai‘i. Hawaii rainbows are a symbol of the uniting uncommonly diverse population in harmonious living thanks to the spirit of Aloha.
