"Story of the Peace Crane" Flier by Chetra Nou
Story of the Peace Crane
The crane was an inspiring symbol for the girl Sadako Sasaki. She was only two when the atomic bomb was dropped onto Hiroshima, but she grew up happily and healthily. But she got Leukemia and was sent to the hospital. At the hospital she heard a legend, "anyone who folds 1000 cranes is granted a wish." Sadako folded well over 1000 cranes before she died at the age of 12.
Now there is a "1000 Cranes of Hope Project," which you can make an online crane and sent it into the internet sky, where other people can read your crane. This website shows support of patients fighting against cancer.
