      this paperweight made a perfect gift for a medical school graduate. I hope it will sit on her desk and remind her to never lose sight of the vision that led her to become a doctor.

          This is an almost redundant gift since the person I got it for perfectly emulates the message on this paperweight. He IS the change he wants to see in the world.

                      This gift more than met my expectations. It was beautifully wrapped - and looked much more expensive than it really was.
                      I purchased this product as a graduation gift for my son from college - as the message was just perfect!
                      It can be given to a man or a woman! It is a one of a kind gift just as I found everything in the catalogue to be!
