KADOYA GALLERY TO HONOR SADAKO SASAKI
INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PEACE
September 21, 2015
Each year the International Day of Peace is observed around the world on 21 September. The General Assembly of the United Nations has declared this as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and peoples.
The video below is just one example of what one artist did to honor the memory of Sadako. It is exciting to learn that this artist's powerful work is now hanging in an elementary school in Hiroshima --- just as he had hoped at the outset of the project.
I personally remember how powerful the process of folding 1,000 cranes and then presenting them at the Sadako Memorial in Hiroshima can be. My parents orchestrated a crane folding project in honor of Sadako many years ago and when they visited me in Japan, we took thousands of cranes from my hometown in Westlake Village, CA and placed them on the Memorial. There are no words in any language to describe the power of the moment when honoring the life of a 12 year old at the epicenter of one history's greatest tragedies.
My hope is that everyday should be A DAY OF PEACE. If you are interested in participating in this project --- even by offering just one (1) crane, let me know by sending an email. More details to follow in the coming week. Thank You. Gregory Howell
