The eye on the heart talks about clearly seeing what the heart wants to say. The flame above the heart is a reminder to share your gift with courage and to let it burn bright. The heart is worn but is still strong. The hands are the offering of the gift. And, finally the backplate holds a few symbols of various jobs people perform. All necessary, all valid, and most of all, all greatly appreciated. Everyone offers a contribution to the fabric of the whole.
