Pray for Japan

Orikami (折り紙)can be interpret as "Ori" - folding and "kami" - paper. Crane (鶴) in Japanese culture is representing about loyatly, joy, happiness, long life, prosperity, good health, good luck and peace.

Thousand Orikami cranes (千羽鶴)mean strings are used to connect all the orikami cranes together. Japanese legend believes that crane can live up to 1000 years. For those who fold thousand cranes, crane will give them a wish. In fact, this can allow poeple wish comes true. Furthermore, people usually will wish others long life or recovery from illness.

11 of March 2011, Japan was affected by 8.9 magnitude earthquake and 10m hight tsunami around Kanto and Tokufu area as well as less serious in Hokkaido. Even though majority of my friends were staying in Kyoto - Kansai region, they still can feel the tremor. 80% of my friends had replied my emails or messages. However, I do wish I can get the safety note from Sendai's friends as soon as possible. Worry ~~~~ (>.<)

I can do nothing to help them. Maybe fold thousand cranes to make a wish is the only thing I can do. Let's pray for everyone safeness in Japan as well as worldwide safety in the future.

Here is thousand cranes. Wish Japan free from disaster now and recovery as soon as possible~~ and of course world wide peaceful.
