Numerous origami cranes are believed to be a symbol of hope. Hope is a life changing force. It can make tough present situation more bearable. I pushes us to improve our lives because envisioning a better future motivates you to take the steps to make it happen.
This work is a reminder of that having hope links your past and present to the future. When you have a vision for what you hope will happen. Whether it does not, just envisioning it can make you feel better.
