Wat's Da Reason?
Reading about Noboru Kawamoto, 94, and his wife of 67 years, Elaine, 88, heartbreaking situation is just straight up pupule!
You got two people dat know their days are numbered because of declining health issues and desperately wish for one thing and one thing only - shockingly it isn't for a medical miracle - but simply... to live together.
Forced - rogah, you read right - FORCED to live miles apart because of some sort of mind boggling legislative issue(s) dat keeps being 'ignored' and because of dat, they are unable to live in da same foster care home even though they don't even rely on da City or State for any assistance with their care - they pay for it all ON THEIR OWN!
They pay for their own foster care expenses and yet da State says a'ole??
Wassup Wit Dat!
I admit I have no idea wat da law or bill says dat prohibits them being together but it bettah be a damn good one! Hea's a classic case of wea doing da right thing gets all jam up with some kine of bureaucratic bull kaka.
Their son, Norman Kawamoto, described how much his parents miss each other and "just simply being together and eating together is a joy for them."
If anything, I believe he's earned da right for them to live together. As a veteran of the 100th Battalion, 442nd Regimental Combat Team, who served in World War II, Noboru Kawamoto - imho - has most definitely earn dat right with just dat sacrifice alone but da fact dat both he and his wife Elaine are paying for it privately and still yet no can be together is just straight up pupule!
They will continue to live in care homes miles apart in Windward Oahu as their son drives them to see each other as much as he can while da state Legislature continues to debate, waiver/'defer' and talk about it.
Are our lawmakers taking "Go For Broke!" literally? I tip my hat off and respectfully bow down to Mr. & Mrs.Noboru Kawamoto for carrying on da actual true sense of da phrase.
At least one thing is for certain..... Heaven ain't run by bureaucrats.
