|I will write Peace on your wings
~ and you will fly all over the world ! |
- Thousend Cranes for Peace Network:
- Today, in Hiroshima's Peace Park, there is a statue of Sadako standing on top of a granite pedestal *holding a golden crane in her outstretched arms. At its base a plaque reads:
- This is our cry.''
- This is our prayer.''
- Peace in the world.''
- Every year, children from around the world fold cranes and send them to Hiroshima
- where they are placed around the statue.
- Because of Sadako, the paper crane has become an international symbol of peace.
