Wishes in Flight

All students at our high school are required to do a "senior project"which includes writing a paper, doing a physical project, and presenting about what they have done. Karre chose to do her`s to raise awareness about traumatic brain injuries and the fact that most of them are preventable. In Minnesota there are 100,000 people living with TBIs so 100,000 origami cranes were made to represent these people. The top photo is what the cranes look like as they are displayed and the bottom is Molly checking out a pile of cranes in our living room.

Wear your seat belts, do not text or talk on the phone while driving, wear a helmet when biking or playing sports, avoid domestic violence, and stay out of wars and you have a great chance of not being a person who will be living with a TBI.

For those who are living with such injuries these cranes bring wishes for a better tomorrow.
