The 1,000 crane curtain hangs during the Out of the Darkness Community Walk at Mount Trashmore Park, Virginia Beach, Va., Sept. 10, 2016. The crane was chosen to represent the Out of the Darkness Community Walk as it, over the centuries, has become a symbol of healing, happiness and hope. In Japan people believed this ancient bird lived for a 1,000 years. Legend has it that, if you fold 1000 paper cranes, your prayers will be answered. Volunteers of the Walk have folded this many with our prayers for peace, not only for those who presently suffer from depression but also for those who have died by suicide.
