So I heard this story today at church and I liked it so much, I decided to share it. Sorry if it's not as well-told as the priest told it, but I'm keeping it simple here. ..
There is a knight and he is traveling with his horse when all of the sudden the horse stops and almost knocks the knight off his back.
"Why on earth are you stopping, horse?" says the knight.
"Because there's a little bird on the ground lying on his back with his feet in the air and I didn't want to hurt him," said the horse.
"A bird? You almost killed me because of a bird?" says the knight.
(Turning to the bird) "Bird, why are you lying on your back like that with your feet up in the air?" said the knight.
"Because the sky is going to fall and I want to save everyone."
"You think lying here in the middle of the road with your feet in the air is going to make a difference?" says the knight.
"I am only one, but I am one. I cannot stop the sky from falling, but I can do something. I can try."
