A Thousand Paper Cranes

I just finished reading this amazing story: Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes. A sad, but beautiful children's book about the young Sadako, a girl from Hiroshima, who discovers she has leukemia - an after effect from the atomic bomb thrown on her city.
In the back of the book it tells the reader how to make a paper crane and so I did:

I dedicate this crane to the children who have fallen ill after the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and to their families.
