The Hummingbird and the Forest Fire

There was once a beautiful forest

Full of animals

But one day, the forest caught fire

And all the animals fled to escape the flames

However, one of the animals, a tiny little hummingbird

Decided to fly to the river,

Pick as much water as it could carry in its beak

Then fly back to the forest and drop the water on the fire

It did this again, again and again

Eventually, some of the other animals saw what the hummingbird was doing

And they shouted

“What are you doing? That is a huge fire…

…and you’re just a tiny hummingbird”

But the Hummingbird didn’t stop

It just turned and replied

“I am doing all I can”
