The Sparrow and the Forest FireSubmitted by Michael Nystrom on Fri, 08/22/2014 - 02:09
A giant fire engulfed the forest and all the animals came rushing out, looking for safety.
Only the sparrow flew back and forth to the lake, scooping up a tiny amount of water into her tiny beak and dumping it onto the fire.
The other animals looked on, dumbfounded. They chided her. "What are you doing, sparrow? Can't you see that it's hopeless?"
"But it is my home," she said.
She continued her work until the fire consumed the forest.
