Ode to World Peace Part 2

Do you know the story of Sadako who folded 1,000 paper cranes in the hope of a world where people can co-exist in peace and harmony? Her wish was that countries make a promise that they will not engage in nuclear attacks on human beings.

I hold Sadako’s story close to my heart and read it often to keep my spirits strong. What can I do? What I can do is share her poignant story and teach others to make beautiful paper cranes that deliver a strong message of peace.

Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes

Sadako was two years old when the United States dropped the Atomic Bomb on Hiroshima, Japan on Aug. 6, 1945. Although she survived the horrific attack, Sadako developed leukemia from the radiation diagnosed as atomic bomb disease. 

While in the hospital, Sadako began folding paper cranes. She was inspired to do so by the Japanese legend that one who created a thousand origami cranes would be granted a wish. Her wish was to live in a peaceful world. 

She exceeded her goal 1,000 cranes and died having folded 1,400 birds. The Japanese government continues to gift Sadako’s cranes to countries around the world as a token of her unfulfilled dream for world peace.
