a thousand cranes

There was a marvelous story on the local KABC 7 news last week.

Cassi is CranesforCassia student here at Hemet High School. She hasn’t been to class because she is fighting a rare form of bone cancer. She and her mother learned of the Japanese tradition of making origami cranes. The crane represents hope and prosperity.

When her classmates learned of Cassie’s interest they got together and made one thousand paper cranes. Cassi showed up at Hemet High last week to receive the cranes, which she will hang in her room.

Oh, and at the same time there was a blood drive, recognizing the fact those fighting cancer need blood transfusions.

People doing good for others.
