I learned to make my first origami crane last Thursday at the origami class offered at The Path of Tea by Debra. I went with the intention of seeing if origami could be one of the once a month art activities with offer people staying overnight in the After Dark program at the Bread of Life, but within no time discovered God had a few intentions that were revealed to be in the process of learning and creating with Debra.

I learned is the story behind the One Thousand Cranes and what is is a symbol of. The Thousand Origami Cranes, Senbazuru, has become a symbol of world peace through the story of Sadako Sasaki, a Japanese girl who tried to stave off her death from leukemia as a result of radiation from the atomic bombing of Hiroshima during World War II by making one thousand origami cranes.
