A Starfish Story
There was a young man walking down a deserted beach
just before dawn.
In the distance, he saw a frail old man. As he approached the old
man, he saw him picking up stranded starfish and throwing them
back into the sea. The young man gazed in wonder as the old man
again and again threw the stranded starfish from the sand to the water.
He asked, "Old man,why do you spend so much effort doing what
seems to be a waste of time?"
The old man explained that the stranded starfish
would die if left in the morning sun.
"But there must be thousands of beaches and millions of starfish," exclaimed the young man.
"How can you make any difference?"
The old man looked down at
the stranded starfish
in his hand
as he threw
it to the safety of the sea.
"I made a difference to this one."
