Write an open letter thanking a historical figure for her contributions to the world.
I want you to know that you are remembered as a strong-willed yet peaceful woman. You stood up for what you believed in and are respected for doing your very best to protect your people. You could have gave up easily but instead you continued to be strong and be a good example as a royal leader and as a woman.
Over 100 years later your legacy lives on. According to the The Queen Liliʻuokalani Trust Fund website your wishes that the Trust be used for orphaned and indigent children remains fulfilled. I think that you would be impressed by how many children are touched by what you started.
As for your people; they remain fighting for what they believe and I am sure they forever will. They too hold a fire within them and want the best for the people and the land. May your peaceful spirit surround them and ease any of their frustrations.
Thank you for sticking to your truth and being the woman and the leader that your people needed at the time. You inspire me to fight for what I believe in and to never waver from it. I hope that you are resting in peace knowing that you and the love for your kingdom will never be forgotten.
Lili’uokalani was the last reigning monarch of the Kingdom of Hawaiʻi before it was overthrown. She was a songwriter and the first Native Hawaiian female author. Her book Hawaiʻi’s Story by Hawaiʻi’s Queen is her view on the history of Hawaiʻi and its overthrow. To this day it is still considered as an important part of Hawaiian History.
