The Bumble Bee Cannot Fly
According to the law of aerodynamics the bumble bee cannot fly. It's body is too heavy for its wings, and that the simple reason why. But the bumble bee doesn't know this fact, and so it flies anyway for all to see. Remember this when you're losing faith or hope. God's proof that the impossible can be.
~A.S. Waldrop

ABOUT BEELIEVE

Beelieve is the I Can Be inspirational symbol. He made his first book reading appearance at Flora's Large Family Child Care and hopes to visit many reading centers, children's hospitals, and classrooms in the near future. His next stop will be at Reid's Learning Center in Miami.

Why a bumble bee? What started out to be a cute mascot turned out to be such a powerful and inspirational symbol.

THE BUMBLE BEE ARGUMENT

The aerodynamic theory of 1918-19 stated that bumble bees shouldn't fly based on the fact that their small wings and heavy body should not be able to generate adequate lift. Since then scientists have discovered the bumble bee's ability to generate lift can be created via different airflow.

Whether myth or fact....What better symbol than the humble bumble bee to remind our youth that "I CAN BE".
