Seventh graders at the Lake Champlain Waldorf School, Mike Casarico and Sienna DeVoe-Talluto of Shelburne and Olivia Pintair of Williston, send off 1,000 paper cranes to the Boston Children’s Hospital.

Moved by the recent events in Boston, Gregory Foster’s seventh grade class at the Lake Champlain Waldorf School folded 1,000 paper cranes for the Boston Children’s Hospital, which were delivered this week. The class was inspired by the ancient Japanese tradition of senbazuru, which promises that a person who folds 1,000 cranes will be granted a wish, such as long life or recovery from illness. The class, wishing the children of Boston hope and healing, included this letter with the three teeming bins of cranes. The hospital will share these cranes with their children patients.
