I’ll have audio online in a bit about this, but I thought I’d share something a 9-year-old student told me. She and her Hillside Elementary School classmates folded more than 1,200 paper cranes and wrote a wish on each one.
"One of my wishes was for my dad to have no more surgery on his leg because he went to Iraq and got shot," she said. "And my other wish was world peace and for the war to stop because more people are getting hurt."
Again, she’s 9.
