The Starfish Collection: Making a Difference

Published May 31 2017 in New Collections

One day a man was walking along the 
beach when he noticed a boy picking up
and gently throwing things into the ocean.
Approaching the boy he asked:
"Young man,what are you doing?"
The boy 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."
The man laughed to himself and said,
"Do you realize there are miles and miles of beach
and hundreds of starfish? You can't make any difference."
After listening politely, the boy bent down,
picked up another starfish and threw it into the surf,
then smiling at the man, he said:
"I made a difference to that one."
