If you haven’t been keeping up with the news lately, North Korea has threatened to attack the small island of Guam, a U.S territory. Since the news, the island and I have been worrying a lot, but the people on the mainland seem to think we’re just one tiny, useless island. 

The people here are the nicest, genuine, humble and loyal people. They adore their culture and strive every day to keep it alive. I was not born here, I moved here when I was eight, but since then I’ve fallen in love with the island I call my home.

I’d like to share a local song that educates you on how much we adore our small island. No, we don’t live in huts. No, we don’t walk around naked. We are civilized, we are smart, we are strong, and we are important. I hope you all realize we are out here. And we are scared. But there is no place like home.

Hu Guiya Håo = I love you in the native language of Chamorro. Guåhan is the native name for Guam!

Please reblog, and pray for our little island. It’d be greatly appreciated.
