Grace is a way of being, of how you treat people. In ancient Polynesia, grace was a state of mind where all was in acceptance. When someone is in a true state of grace, they accept that people, things, circumstances just are. They are not to be judged, and therefore, allowed to live. The symbol for grace is a series of wavy lines, such as a wave. Water accepts a pebble and ripples and then becomes calm again. A wave can be designed in many different ways.
