THE LITTLE HUMMINGBIRD
LEGEND OF THE LITTLE HUMMINGBIRD, A NATIVE AMERICAN TALE BY PIERRE RABHI
The tale goes as follows ‘’One day, there was a huge forest fire. All the terrified animals helplessly watched the disaster. Only the hummingbird decided to take action, going to get a few drops of water in its beak to throw them on the fire. After a moment, the armadillo, annoyed by his helpless actions, said to him: "Hummingbird! Are you out of your mind? Do you think it is with these drops of water that you will extinguish the fire?
"I know, answered the hummingbird, but I'm doing my part."
