A man was walking down the beach at sunset. As, he walked along, hesaw another man in the distance. He noticed this man kept leaningdown, picking up something and throwing it out into the water, again and again.
As, he approached even closer, he noticed that the man waspicking up starfish that had been washed up on the beach. He wasthrowing them back into the water, one by one.
Puzzled, he approached the man and said, "Good Evening. I was wondering what you are doing."
"I'm throwing these starfish back into the ocean. You see, it's lowtide and all these starfish have been washed up onto the shore. If, Idon't throw them back into the ocean, they'll die up here from lack ofoxygen."
"But, there must be thousands of starfish on this beach. You can'tpossible get to all of them. And, don't you realize this is probably happening on hundreds of beaches all up and down this coast. Can't yousee that you can't possibly make a difference?"
The man bent down and picked up yet another starfish, and threw itback into the ocean. With a smile he replied, "Made a difference to that one !!!"
Just remember, no matter how small the deedit really does makes a difference.Make a difference today.
Do something nice for someone else.
