There was a man taking a morning walk on the beach. He saw that along with the morning tide came hundreds of starfish and when the tide receded, they were left behind and with the morning sun rays, they would die. The tide was fresh and the starfish were alive. The man took a few steps, picked one and threw it into the water. He did it repeatedly. Right behind him was another person who couldn’t understand what this man was doing. He caught up with him and asked, “What are you doing?” There are hundreds of starfish. How many can you help? What difference does it make?” The man did not reply, took two more steps, picked up another one, threw it into the water, and said, “It makes a difference to this one.”
I like to think that I made a difference!
