Since February 18, 2016, I have been giving away an origami peace crane each day folded out of a square of my own hand-painted paper. Most of the cranes have been placed around the campus of St. Mary’s University in San Antonio, Texas. My personal goal has been to do this for 1000 days with the intention of praying for world peace.
November 14, 2018, marks the 1000th day.
A special crane has been designed to be placed in the University Center at St. Mary’s University.

I see the origami peace crane also as a symbol of the Holy Spirit.

A crane drop on 28 February 2016 in the Michael D. Bigger sculpture, Through the looking glass II, in front of the San Antonio Museum of Art. Placed it, went to lunch, came back and it had flown away. I always wonder what happens to cranes that disappear. Hoping it places a drop of peace in the world.
