2 weeks from today, August 6, I’ll be a part of the 70th Anniversary Commemoration Ceremony, remembering the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, Japan – which would lead to the end of World War II.
The presentation of 1,000 origami peace cranes, with messages for world peace, designed by students of Cosby High School, will be presented by myself and colleague, Sebrell Bryant, to the Peace Promotion Division for International Peace and to the City of Hiroshima at the UNESCO Peace Memorial Shrine of Peace.
The pictures, above, are the story of Cosby’s design creation that will be traveling to Hiroshima, Japan. I would like to thank Helena Agnew, one of Cosby’s many-talented Fine Arts Teachers, for helping me put this project together. Without her, it WOULD NOT have been possible. Thanks to the Cosby Titans who wrote sincere messages of hope & peace.
Why 1,000 cranes? Read the following story and you’ll understand..Sadako Sasaki – “The Girl Who Transformed the Symbol of the Crane into a Symbol of Peace and Hope”.
