“One day a man was walking along the seashore. He noticed a human figure moving like a dancer, bending then wading into the waves, arms extended. It pleases him that someone would dance to the beauty of the day and the rhythm of the waves. As he got closer he saw that it was a young boy. The boy wasn’t dancing, but instead he was reaching down to the sand, picking up starfish and tossing them into the surf. He paused a moment, puzzled, then asked, “Why are you throwing starfish into the ocean?” “The sun is up and the tide is going out. He replied. If I don’t throw them in, they’ll be stranded on the beach and die.” “But don’t you realize that there are thousands of miles of beach and starfish all along the way. You can’t possibly make a difference!” The boy stopped. His face darkened. He chewed his lower lip, “You’re probably right,” he said softly. He looked down at the sand. Then he leaned over, carefully picked up another starfish, pulled back and arched it gently into the sea. He watched a wave lift it high, and then it sank into the life-giving water. With a tone of gentle defiance, he said, ‘But I made a difference for that one.’” ~ Author Unknown
