The Starfish Story By: Loren Eisley

Words to live by:

One day a man was walking along the beach when he noticed a boy picking up starfish and gently throwing it 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 hundreds of starfish? You can't make a difference!" After listening politely, the boy bent down, picked up another starfish, and threw it back into the surf. Then, smiling at the man. he said.... "I made a difference for that one."

Everyone can make a difference. You never know who your helping.
