Are you familiar with the the legend of the hummingbird?
The legend says that, many moons ago, an enormous fire was raging in the heart of the forest. All the animals were trapped in the middle of a huge ring of fire. It seemed as though they would never make it out alive. Paralyzed with fear, many animals stared into the fire, helplessly. The larger mammals angrily pointed and blamed each other as they tried to condemn those who were responsible for this blazing inferno. The smaller animals, who feared being squashed by the warring giants, scurried around frantically as they tried to avoid being trampled. Surprisingly, some creatures denied there was a fire at all, but the firestorm raged on.
Unexpectedly, a hummingbird rose above the fray and darted towards a nearby lake to look for a solution. A few moments later, he returned with a single drop of water in his tiny beak and released it onto the flames which were now out of control.
The animals stared in disbelief and began to mock him.
“Hummingbird, how naïve can you be? You’ll never put out the fire with that teeny tiny drop of water!”, they cackled and jeered.
“I know! But I’m doing my part!”, replied the hummingbird as he flashed back to the lake for another drop with a confident heart.
Now, how will you do yours?
