"Love Circles"  Commissioned by the groom as a wedding gift to his bride, the circles are a symbol of oneness and connectedness and celebrate the couple's love.  The three circles symbolize different realms of love:  the inner circle represents the love between the couple, the middle circle represents the love of family and friends, and the outer circle represents the love of the world family of man. 

Community Totem 2   page has resources on community & information on a number of organizations that promote and educate for community.
