"I hope God likes chocolate!" by 


These, were folded when I was in grade 5 (age 10)

That year our teacher read to our class the story of “Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes”. In one particular moment of the story, Sadako’s mother visited Sadako at the hospital and gave her a piece of paper which her sister saved for her. Sadako took the paper and said “Mmmm, smells like candy. I hope God likes chocolate”. Everyone laughed including Sadako.

Around that time I went through an origami craze and saved bits of paper and candy wrappers to do origami out of them. Mmmm… kitkat and hershy’s cookies ‘n creme… (I don’t eat this stuff as much now :P)

There is a legend that says if you fold 1000 peace cranes, your wish will come true. Sadako Sasaki suffered from leukemia, and folded cranes while she was in the hospital in hope of becoming better.

    Awww, thanks so much my friend for refreshing that story to me, I also read it in 5th grade too and learned how to make it and still remember how to make it. Excellent story! Wow cannot believe you still save it! You have chosen a excellent title for this work! Well done my friend!

  • Wow you also read it in grade 5? What a coincidence! I’m not surprised the least bit that you know the story because I know many people do, but just the fact it was the same grade. I save a lot of things; I’m very sentimental :P
