Ayako wrote to me from Japan about some origami cranes she got at when donating at a charity for the tsunami victims in Japan…
"This is our traditional crane, made by origami… it’s a symbol of hope for peace in the world. I got it at the charity show to pray for Japan. It’s our sign for peace or comfort for recovery from illness or war."
Thank you for sharing Ayako. We all hoping for a speedy recovery in Japan.
