The Sadako story has touched many hearts, and people around the world fold paper cranes and send them to the Children’s Peace Monument in Hiroshima.
Though Sadako is gone, because her hopes and courage touch people’s hearts across the boundaries of nationality and time, she has become a symbol of peace. Nevertheless, nuclear weapons have not disappeared from the Earth. Wars that carry the threat of their use continue to break out around the world.
Entrusting to it their dreams of a peaceful future, people of the world still offer paper cranes to the Children’s Peace Monument. The figure of Sadako holds a paper crane, lifting up the hope that no more children anywhere will lose their lives to war.
Our children, teachers & parents have folded 2000+ Origami paper cranes in 2 weeks. We are sending them to Children’s Peace Monument in Hiroshima making a wish.
Thank you to all who have contributed in this great work.
