You Make a Difference Every Day
A man walked up a shore littered with thousands of starfish, beached and dying after a storm. A boy was picking them up and gently throwing them back into the ocean. Approaching the boy, he asked, “What are you doing?” The youth replied, “Throwing starfish back into the ocean. The surf is up and the tide is going out. If I don’t throw them back, they’ll die.”
“Son,” the man said, “don’t you realize there are miles and miles of beach and thousands of starfish? You can’t make a difference!” After listening politely, the boy picked up another starfish and threw it back into the surf. Then smiling at the man, he said, “I made a difference to that one."
