Sadako And The Thousand Paper Cranes : Twelve-year-old Sadako Sasaki was the lively star of her school's running team when the dizzy spells started. Soon gravely ill with leukemia, an aftereffect of the atom bomb that fell on her city when she was a toddler, Sadako approached her illness as she did her running - with irrepressible spirit. Recalling a Japanese legend, Sadako set to work folding paper cranes. For the legend holds that if a sick person folds one thousand cranes, the gods will grant her wish and make her healthy again.
