Kealakehe feels the power
Jon Pritikin visited Kealakehe Elementary School on Dec. 2 to speak to students about kindness and being a friend to others. He told his story about being bullied and feeling alone and sad when he was growing up and how he found the power to overcome his sadness.
Pritikin demonstrate feats of strength such as rolling a frying pan like a burrito, tearing a telephone book in half and bending a steel rod after lifting two students who held on to it. He spun the two girls in front of a group of wide-eyed students.
Pritikin travels the world spreading his message of “Feel the Power.” His feats of strength can be found in the “Guinness Book of Records 2009.”
