Giving 1000 out of 1 to Akiba by MannaOri Giving 1000 out of 1 to Akiba by MannaOri
This photo was taken by Aryan Zijlstra.

It shows me giving the 1000 cranes out of 1 to Mayor Akiba from Hiroshima (Japan). It was my gift to the children peace memorial in Hiroshima. Here they come together each year on the 6th of August, with children, to fold a bunch of cranes. They do this to remember the nucleair attack that happened in Hiroshima on the 6th of August 1945, wich we hope will never happen again.

It was very special to meet this man, the mayor of peace, and he thought it was special to meet me.

Love and light to you all,

Manna

I think there is a book dealing with folding cranes and that nuclear attack. I just..can't remember the name and I wish I could. (But that was back in elementary school when it was read to us.)
How awesome is that. I would feel so honored not only to meet him but to remember those children.

There's a picture book called Sadako, if that's the one you're thinking of. :]
That is very impressive, both the work itself and what you did with it. Congratulations!
