Quilting bees

The other day I watched Bee Movie, a smart, funny animated movie about a young bee, Barry, who questions life in the hive and seeks adventure and friendship among humans. He discovers a great conspiracy: the sale of honey stolen from bees, fields of hives pressed into slavery. When I heard this, I couldn’t help thinking of the Quilting for Peace campaign:

“Mr. Ditchwater, the way we work may be a mystery to you, because making honey takes a lot of bees doing a lot of small jobs. But let me tell you something about a small job. If you do it really well, it makes a big difference. More than we realized. To us, to everyone.”
