I am deeply saddened at the passing of Senator Inouye. He is a true American hero, sacrificing in battle and breaking the barriers of prejudice that existed during World War II. After serving so admirably and bravely, Dan Inouye returned to Hawaii and began his distinguished career as an elected servant of the people.
Senator Inouye was a true servant-leader who inspired so many to step up and serve Hawaii and our nation. The fact his last word was "Aloha" speaks volumes about this iconic leader.
