Making A Difference
An old man walking along the beach at sunrise came upon a young man sifting through the debris left by the night’s tide. Every now and then, he would pick up a starfish and fling it back to the sea.
The old man asked him the purpose of his efforts. “The tide has washed the starfish onto the beach. They will die unless I throw them back.” The old man looked around at the miles of beach. “There are more starfish than you could ever save. Surely you cannot expect to make a difference.”
The young man bent to pick up another starfish. As he sent the starfish sailing back to the water, he said to the old man, “I can make a difference to this one.”
You make a difference every day!
