One Thousand Cranes

To mark my 1000th post, a note about Sadako Sasaki, the girl from Hiroshima whose effort to cure herself of radiation-related leukemia by folding one thousand origami cranes became an inspiration around the world, including in the Peace Park in Seattle, where the statue below was installed in 1990.


There is also a memorial inspired by the symbolic power of Sadako's story in Hiroshima's Peace Park> This memorial was finished in 1958.
