Let the cranes fly

Though her family was distressed with the fervor she put into folding the cranes, she always told them that she 'had a plan'.

Sadako Sasaki was a 2 year old girl who survived the atomic bomb falling on Hiroshima to die, like so many others, of leukemia at the age of 12. She spent the last 3 months of her life, in hospital, folding paper cranes out of whatever she could find.

I do not know what the future of the United Kingdom holds. I do not know what may threaten us. But I am not so afraid of it that I want to spend 76 Billion Pounds to buy missiles to fly off to vapourize more cities.

Let cranes fly instead.
