Make an origami peace crane.

Hi guys,
An ancient Japanese legend promise that if you fold a thousand origami cranes, then your greatest wish come true.
I´m going to tell you the story of Sadako. It´s a very sad story. Ten years after the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, twelve years old Sadako became ill with radiation sickness. Sadako´s greatest wish was to live and so she started folding origami cranes. Sadly she died before she could make a thousand. Her friends and classmates folded the remaining cranes and she was buried with them.
The origami crane became a symbol of Peace.Click here and make a peace crane. This animation is dedicated to the memory of Sadako.
I hope you all enjoy folding origami cranes.
