One Thousand Cranes

Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it.

One Thousand Cranes

Cranes are revered in Japan as mystical creatures and are said to live for a thousand years. A thousand paper cranes are often given to wish for the recovery of a seriously ill person. In this moving video one woman with a traumatic past uses her fingers, eyes and heart to teach young people from difficult backgrounds the skill of origami so that like her they are able to make something beautiful. Though their scars do not go away in the process, they learn to use the lines of those scars to create something of beauty to share with others. She eloquently points out that one person cannot do it alone but with a collective effort, bit by bit, each person’s potential for growth and hope can be realized. { read more }
