There are a lot of conflicting voices on the internet about whether it is appropriate or even safe to travel to the island of Maui in the wake of the tragedy in Lahaina. In this video, I share my experience based on our trip there last week.
We really wrestled with whether our trip would be the right thing to do, but based on the response we received from the people of Maui, I’m convinced we made the right decision.
