International Peace Day - September 21

September 21 is the 50th anniversary of International Peace Day and to celebrate we are creating an installation of 1000 (or more) Origami cranes. This idea is part of the Children's Peace Movement and was originally inspired by a young Japanese girl who died of leukemia after being exposed to the A bomb. My children and I are reading Saduko 1000 Paper Cranes together and talking about the importance of peace.

Please join us as we take 1000 moments to reflect on inner peace and our hopes for world peace. As the cranes begin to accumulate I will post additional images.

If you have never made an Origami crane it is easy and there are great web instruction.
