African legend of a hummingbird

Found a beautiful legend of a hummingbird today. Nobel Laureate Wangari Maathai tells an inspiring tale of doing the best you can even if you only can bring a drop of solution.

I also like the extended version: “… The other animals started laughing but a small elephant filled his trunk with water and threw it against a bush that was burning. The flames were extinguished. Also the pelican filled its beck with water. He flew above the forest and threw the water on a tree that was burning. Little by little, all the animals, putting apart all their dislikes. In the end everyone helped with all the means at their disposal to extinguish the flames and succeded.”

Do my best especially when things look hopeless.
