  • Four words will strike jealousy in anyone: “I went to Hawaii.”  Yes, my spring break was spent blissfully soaking in the sun and the hang-loose atmosphere of the spectacular island of Oahu. Among the pleasant sounds of the ocean waves, the chirping birds, and the tourists’ laughter, was a sound...
