Why Not? — Bee

Posted on: June 3, 2011

Jill Barad, an ex-CEO of Mattel (Makers of the famous “Barbie” Doll) used to wear a piece of jewelry on her always: A shining golden bee pin.

People wear all sorts of jewels on them, But why a Bee? When asked for the reason, this is what Jill Barad told:

When I started working, my mother gave me a bumblebee pin. She said “Aerodynamically, bees shouldn’t be able to fly. But they do. Remember that.”

The bee is an oddity in nature. It shouldn’t be able to fly, but it does. Every time I see that bee out of the corner of my eye, I am reminded to keep pushing for the impossible.
