"Olivia is an intelligent and strong woman. But that doesn’t mean that she can take an enormous parting such as this. There are things you can never take, no matter how strong you are. I hope the world will be kind to her and Dhani." - Yoko Ono in her tribute to George Harrison, Rolling Stone, 17 January 2002

Dear Family of Peace
This time (on my latest visit to Japan) I went specially to Hiroshima to fold a paper crane with one victim of the 1945 Atomic Bomb, and the youth of now beautiful Hiroshima City to dedicate it to the ones who died from the bombing.
Orizuru -the paper crane – is the symbol of peace, and I know that many of you in the world know how to fold it.
Do it on August 6th in dedication to the Victims of the Bomb, repeating to yourself and to the world NO MORE HIROSHIMA as you do it. Then the folding of the paper crane, you will realize will become a meditation you share with the world.
You can bury the orizuru you made in your back yard, hang it in your room, keep it inside a book you love to read, or send it to a friend.
Fold more than one orizuru and send them to all your friends, explaining the occasion, if you wish.

The 81-year-old artist asked participants to spread to the world the experience of Hiroshima, which was devastated by a U.S.-dropped atomic bomb in 1945 in World War II. (Kyodo)
