Thank you Stacey's Classes!

This story has touched me because I learned how to make cranes when I was in fifth grade. We had read Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes, and the Korean students in my class taught the rest of us how to make them. We folded a thousand and hung them proudly in our class. I remember really enjoying all the colors and the relaxation of folding. I also remember being very touched by the story of Sadako, one of tragedy, but also of hope, courage, and peace.
These cranes came in a HUGE box from three of Stacey's fifth grade classes. For all the students out there who helped to make these cranes, Thank You! They are going to someone very sick and in need of all the hope and love you've poured out into them. Thank you as well to Stacey for organizing all of this. It's no small feat. Heartful wishes to all, Julie
