1000 Paper Cranes

Almost 1000 paper cranes.

The story goes that a little girl, Sadako, was sick from being exposed to radiation after the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima. Sadaoko hears of the legend of a 1000 paper cranes, which states that your wish will come true if you fold 1000 paper cranes. Inspired by the story, she begins to fold paper cranes. The story ends in different ways, regardless, she dies at 12.

Inspired by this story, my old roommate (well not technically, but pratically), Haruka, decided to start the Yume project, with the goal of promoting world peace. For the past three years students have gotten together in the SLC to try and fold 1000 paper cranes. Every year so far we have been successful.
