Thanks ЯANdOM ЯAWR for the comment and follow! I'm so happy!
Anyways, I learnt this yesterday from one of our instructors who came from Japan because of the Japanese earthquake;
The paper crane is Japan’s most powerful symbol of peace and hope. In the aftermath of the Japan earthquake and tsunami, folding paper cranes to send our prayers, thoughts and wishes to Japan seems very appropriate. She told us about Sadako. When she was telling us the story, I felt tears prickle from my eyes. I think you'll understand if you read the story.
Note to self: This is true story.
Sadako and the 1,000 Paper CranesSadako Sasaki was a Japanese girl who lived near Hiroshima, Japan when the atom bomb was dropped in 1945. At the age of 11, she was diagnosed with leukaemia as a result of radiation from the bomb. Japanese legend says that anyone who folds 1,000 paper cranes pleases the gods and is granted a wish, so Sadako decided to fold 1,000 paper cranes to make her wish to get well come true. Sadly, she had folded a total of just 644 cranes when she died. Sadako's friends and classmates completed the 1,000 paper cranes and these were buried with her. A statue of Sadako now stands at Hiroshima, and at its foot is a plaque which reads: "This is our cry. This is our prayer. This is our cry. This is our prayer. Peace on Earth.
I found this really interesting even though it was tear throbbing. There's also a book about it so I'm hoping I'll read it sooner or later. So what do you think?
