"A Single Person Can Make a Difference"
While walking down the beach, a man saw someone
in the distance leaning down, picking something up and
throwing it in the ocean. As he came coser, he saw thousands
of starfish the tide had thrown onto the beach. Unable to
return to the ocean during low tide, the starfish were dying.
He observed a young boy pikcking up the starfish one by one
and throwing them back into the ocean. After watching the
seeminly futile effort, the observer said, "There must be
thousands of starfish on the beach. It would be impossible
for you to save all of them. There are simply too many.
You can't possibly save enough to make a difference."
The young boy smiled as he picked up another starfish
and tossed it back into the ocean.
"Made a difference to that one," he replied.
