Legend of the hummingbird
January 14, 2015
Zaz, a well-known singer in France, has released an album (and children’s book) in support of the Collibris foundation.
One day, says the legend, there was an immense forest fire. All the animals, terrified, appalled, observed powerlessly the disaster. Single-handedly, the little hummingbird got a move on, gathering a few drops with its beak in order to throw them on the fire. Shortly afterwards, the armadillo, annoyed by this ridiculous commotion said: “Hummingbird! Are you nuts? It’s not with these drops of water that you are going to extinguish the fire!”
And the hummingbird replied: “I know, but I am doing my part.”
