THERE IS AN ANCIENT STORY* OF A HUMMINGBIRD AND IT IS ABOUT HOW WE REACT TO A CRISIS.
RIGHT NOW, WE FACE A WATER AND SANITATION CRISIS. DO WE STAND AND STARE?
OR, DO WE ACT?
‘One day in the forest, a fire broke out.
All the animals ran for their lives.
They stood at the edge of the blaze, looking at the flames in terror and sadness.
Up above their heads, a hummingbird was flying back and forth to the fire, over and over again.
The bigger animals asked the hummingbird what she was doing.
“I am flying to the lake to get water to help put out the fire.”
The animals laughed at her and said, “You can’t put out this fire!”
The hummingbird replied, “I’m doing what I can.”’
She is being the change she wants to see in the world.
You can be a hummingbird, too.
The actions you TAKE, NO matter how small, will help solve the water crisis.
The hummingbird shows us the power of doing what we can.
