Where there is kindness among people, there is hope for our human race, especially in these uncertain times. One such kind person is Leni Marie Acosta Knight, a petite, soft-spoken, unassuming lady who was still in her teens when she migrated with her family from the Philippines to join her dad in the United States. When she arrived in Hawaii, she attended school, then moved to Los Angeles, starting a career in commodities and real estate. She traveled extensively, especially in Europe where she had plans to settle in France. Except Fate had other plans for her. During a short vacation in Hawaii, she met her future ex-husband, had two children with him, and settled in for a life of a busy mom and wife.
