1000 Cranes of Happiness

#503 #day8 of #japantravels was our final day in Hiroshima so we went to the #peacepark and #peacemuseum. There is so much to take from this but a theme of #athousandcranesofhappiness ran throughout. A schoolgirl had heard about the idea and had put all of her efforts into making origami cranes as prayers for her recovery from leukaemia, caused by the radiation she was exposed to at the time of the #atomicbomb blast…unfortunately she died a little over a year after her symptoms became apparent but her classmates continued making cranes of happiness as prayers for peace. This practice continues today with cranes of happiness being sent each year…wow! #diligenceinprayer
