Photo by @paulnicklen #onassignment for @natgeo in #Hawaii. The "train" is a technique invented by #hawaiian watermen to train lifeguards. The first runner, waterwoman @haakeaulana is carrying a 50 lb rock and towing 3 other lifeguards, including her legendary father #Briankeaulana and @samkapoi.

“Imagine that you are creating a fabric of human destiny with the object of making men happy in the end, giving them peace and rest at last. Imagine that you are doing this but that it is essential and inevitable to torture to death only one tiny creature…in order to found that edifice on its unavenged tears. Would you consent to be the architect on those conditions? Tell me. Tell the truth.” Fyodor Dostoevsky, The Brothers Karamazov
