Cranes for peace

A lesson about a Japanese girl who died from radiation poisoning following the bombing of Hiroshima prompted Driswood Elementary School fourth-graders in Kayla Jainniney’s class to fold 1,000 origami paper cranes during indoor recess this winter. The cranes will be sent to the Children’s Peace Monument in Hiroshima, Japan. Because of the story of Sadako, an 11-year-old Japanese girl, folding origami cranes has become synonymous with the message of peace on earth and schoolchildren from around the globe send their folded cranes to Hiroshima.
