We have a figure; it could be a man, woman, adult or child, or an organization in a position of advantage that extends a hand of friendship to another. In fact, the figure bends over double to assist that person who for the moment is down there- who needs help or leverage. However, as we are all aware, in life, the only thing that is constant is change.

The one, who is down today, may indeed have the advantage tomorrow. As the figure bends over the double, to make a difference, to make an impact, to reach out and touch somebody’s hands, to make this world a better place…the muscles and backbone stretch, the helper can feel a twitch of discomfort as the finger stretch to make with the other.

And as the hands touch, the eyes connect… for the moment in time, a bond is forged, a connection made… a life saved, enriched and a warm golden blow to hope and love engulfs both parties both the giver and given… hope, love, faith is rekindled.

For that infinitesimal moment in time as the figures touch… there is a burst of hope and the weary earth rejoices.

The figure represents LIGHT … light to show the way to a better and brighter future for mankind and the universe. It is said that, it is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness; Light that illuminates what is good and right about us all… and banishes our ills not just today… but forever.
