The Hummingbird's share

The Hummingbird's share

 

« One day, there was a great forest fire. Stunned and terrified, all the animals watched the disaster, powerless to act. Only the little hummingbird buzzed around, fetching a few drops of water in his beak to throw on the fire.

After a time, the armadillo, irritated by these pathetic attempts, said: “Hummingbird! Are you mad? Do you think that you’re going to put the fire out with a few drops of water?” “I know”, replied the hummingbird, “but I’m doing my bit” ».
