Aloha Sign for President Obama

Posted: Updated:
By Alicia Ewen


Rissa Williams and her son made an "Aloha" sign on the side of their van to welcome the President to North Dakota.
Rissa and her husband were in the air force together.
So while many might consider this a once in a lifetime experience, it's something they are very familiar with.
And they didn't make the sign just because Obama is from Hawaii.. The Williams are also from the "Aloha State."
Their son, Keali'i, was born there.
"His name is keali'inanimokuoka'aina, which means Handsome Chief Ruling Over the Land. I've always said that President Obama took his job.  He was supposed to be the first president from Hawaii" Rissa Williams said.
They were hoping Obama would see the sign and that it would make him feel a little bit more at home.
