One day a man was walking along the beach and noticed a boy picking up things and gently throwing them into the ocean. When he got close enough to the boy he asked, “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.

Son”, the man said, “don’t you realize there are miles and miles of beach and hundreds 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!
