The medal symbolizes

Lifelike sculpture, the bonsai is the fruit of patience and fidelity, of love and respect of life. Noble and worthy, it symbolizes peace and serenity. In its small size, one finds greatness and a delicate balance between the force of Man and that of Nature.

It is the perfect example of a lasting relationship and of unconditional devotion.

The Gift of Life…

The day will come when my body, covered by sheet stretched to the four corners of the bed will remain on a hospital bed,will lie among the living souls, in the throes of death. At some moment, a doctor will determine that my brain has stopped working and that life has forever left my body.

When that happens, don't try to keep me alive with any machine. Do not speak of my "deathbed". Instead talk about my "life" and let them take my body so it can be used to enrich someone else's...

Give my eyes to someone who has never seen the sunrise, a baby's smile or the love on a woman's face...

Give my heart to the someone whose own heart is weak...

Give my blood to the teenager pulled out of a car wreck, so he too can live on, to play someday play with his grand-children ...

Give my kidney to someone who has to go come every week for dialysis...

Take my bones, muscles, nerves and other living tissues from me so we can learn how to make a paralysed child walk...

Study and explore my brain, and take what is needed so that someday, children can be cured of silence and learn to cry out in joy.

Burn the rest of my body and spread it in open fields so flowers can grow. If there is anything to bury, it would be my wrongdoings, my failings and my prejudice against others of my own kind.

If you would like to remember me, do so by helping someone in need with simple words or actions. If you do everything I wish, " I will live on forever " …

THANKS FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING!!!
