I read this story today.
All the animals are afraid and running away because they have heard that the sky is falling in. A little sparrow hears them, and wonders what she can do; she is far too small and insignificant to help. Finally she decides to lie on her back and point her two feet into the air.
What are you doing, little sparrow? others ask.
‘Well, I heard that the sky is falling, and I am doing the little I can to hold it up.’ she replies.
So there is our choice; run around in circles and spread fear and distress, or do our part in holding up the sky.
