The Light Within

John Niewiek's avatar John Niewiek

The gears in the globe are like people. They are all bicycle gears and like people are all basically the same. And yet there are many types and differences. The globe is like our community. No matter where you are in the community/globe what makes them work is that each gear, each person, is connected to and supports those around them. In some of the globes’ panels the gears form patterns which represent micro societies in our community like your school, your work, your neighborhood, your church, your family. The light represents Hope. Like the gears in the globe no matter where you fit into our community the light of Hope for a better tomorrow, a better day, a better life, shines through.
