World Views

A young Indian boy was hiking up the mountains near where he lived. As he climbed higher and higher he came to a beautiful lake reflecting the surrounding mountain peaks so he sat down to rest. Presently, he was amazed to see a beautiful creature that appeared to be painted with the colors of the rainbow fly out of the sky and land in the lake. After floating on the surface the creature dove under the water and then popped up again some distance away. When the creature came ashore the boy thought, surely this is a magical creature. It can fly through the sky, float on the water like a boat, swim under the water like a fish, walk on land, and had the colors of a rainbow. Later, the young Indian boy was amazed to learn that this magical creature was called “duck.”
