Guam - On Sunday, the Second Annual Guam is Good Symposium was held at the Hyatt Regency Guam. This year's theme was "Living A Life With Meaning" and featured several sessions covering everything from estate planning to creative journaling.

Keynote speaker Lori Earl is the founder of the This Star Won't Go Out foundation and co-author of the book by the same name. "We wrote the dedication to all who live rightfully and love deeply no matter the obstacles or length of days," she shared, "If you want to live fully despite obstacles, despite how many days you have."

The book is a memoir of earl's daughter Esther, who passed away from thyroid cancer at the age of 16. Esther was also the inspiration behind John Green's international bestselling novel "A Fault In Our Stars."
