Kalaupapa, Molokai: Place of exile becomes symbol of strength

Although the cemetery next to St. Philomena church holds a number of tombstones, fewer than 1,000 of the 8,000 patients who died at Kalaupapa have marked graves. A memorial that will include as many of the previous residents' names as possible is still in the planning stages, after a Senate bill to create one was approved by President Obama in 2009.
