1,000 Cranes

Last semester the professor of one of my public finance classes found out he had cancer. During the semester he started chemotherapy. Even though many days he was very tired and in pain because of the chemo, he still came to teach our class and advise us on our projects. He showed incredible courage. As a thank you our class got together to fold 1,000 origami cranes. There is a Japanese legend that says if a person folds a thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish by a crane.

This is a picture of some of my classmates giving the cranes to our professor. I think it turn out beautifully. It is an experience I always want to remember.
