I like the use of symbols, because they carry a wisdom of their own. I choose to use the symbol of the Gingko leaf not only because of its beauty but also because of its resilience – to reminds us just how strong people are in the face of adversity. Often we see the inner strength of people shine-through while they struggle to make meaning out of the setbacks in their life, their losses, or their grief. The Gingko leaf reminds me that regardless of the circumstances, we have no reason to lose hope.
