Sadako Sasaki – Peace

She set out to create one thousand origami cranes when she found out she had just a short time left in her life. “Peace Crane, I will write peace on your wings and you will fly all over the world,” She died at age twelve from leukemia as a result of exposure to an atom bomb. She finished 644 origami cranes. Her schoolmates made the rest.
