Do you remember the story of Chicken Little? To briefly summarize…. Chicken Little was scratching around in the barnyard one day, when all of the sudden, something fell from above him and hit him in the head, and his reaction was, “THE SKY IS FALLING! THE SKY IS FALLING!” Was the sky actually falling? No, of course not. It was simply an Acorn that hit Chicken Little on the head.
