The Hummingbird Story

The story of the hummingbird is one of inspiration and of never giving up - even when the odds seem insurmountable. I first head this story while watching a PBS show on the value of dirt - and how we need to be aware of how to build up the precious earth rather than to destroy the soil with the use of pesticides, etc. The story apparently originates from Japan - and has been told many times by Nobel Peace Laureate Wangari Maathai.

So be like the hummingbird - just do the best you can no matter what.
