I would like to introduce to you my family. Thank you for teaching me wrong from right, and encouraging me to keep my dreams in sight. For showing me to not let obstacles keep me down, and for creating a smile from my frown. For saying that you care about me, and for showing just how special love should be. For wiping my tears away when I am feeling sad, and for calming me down when I get mad. For helping others with the good that you do, and for teaching me that I should help others, too. For hugging me when I am feeling blue, and telling me "I love you." Thank you my family, for all that you do. I don't know where I would be if it weren't for you.
Because of all that you have done for me, and all that you continue to do for me, it is with great pleasure that I dedicate the 40th Polynesian Paradise of the Grand Assembly of Alaska to you.
