Do you know the legend of the Hummingbird?
One day, said the legend, there was a huge forest fire. All the terrified, aghast animals watched the disaster helplessly. Only the little hummingbird was activated, fetching a few drops with its beak to throw them on the fire. After a moment, the armadillo, annoyed by this derisory agitation, said to him: "Hummingbird! Are not you crazy? It is not with these drops of water that you will extinguish the fire! "
And the hummingbird replied, "I know it, but I'm doing my part”.
The moral of this legend is that everyone can act at its own level. Taken individually, our actions may seem derisory, but it is thanks to the sum of the hummingbirds that things change.
One day, it was no longer possible for me to continue carrying my bags made from animal skin. But I could not find an alternative that suits me, both aesthetically and ecologically.
