About Sadako Sasaki
Diagnosed with leukemia due to radiation exposure from the atomic bomb, Sadako Sasaki began folding paper cranes in her hospital bed. According to Japanese legend, a person who folds 1,000 paper cranes will be granted one wish. Sadako, after folding more than 1,000 cranes, wished for world peace and reconciliation. The Sadako Legacy Foundation of Japan donated one of Sadako's cranes to World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument; the crane is now part of a new exhibit at the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center.

Beuatiful necklace

Bought this necklace to remember our wonderful visit to Pearl Harbor. The paper crane is very meaningful and I love to share the story. I get compliments when I wear it. The chain has some interest to it as well - it goes nicely together. Highly recommend and very reasonable price.
