In support of our two students from Japan, Aya and Fuko, as well as their families and friends, the students, faculty, and staff have been making paper cranes. We will soon meet our goal of one thousand cranes. It is a Japanese tradition to have a thousand cranes made for anyone in the hospital or suffering hardships. We are stringing them in groups of twenty-five and hanging them in the dining hall for a period of time. We will then send the cranes to Fuko’s father, a doctor in Yokohama, where they will be hung in the hospital in which he works. The Community Service Group at IMS is also selling bracelets, generously provided by Aya’s mother, the proceeds of which will be sent to Japan in support of the recovery efforts.
