Bird’s choice

The forest is on fire. Animals watch with amusement, as a tiny bird brings water in her beak and puts it on the fire.

“You silly bird”, says the smart monkey, “you cannot extinguish the fire with a few drops.”

“I know,” she responds, “but when history is written, I want to be counted amongst those who acted, not onlookers.”

a good intent
backed by action
not a privilege
of high and mighty
