MAKING A DIFFERENCE

Back One



An old man walking along a beach one day, notices a youth picking up starfish and flinging them into the sea. The old man asks, "Why are you doing this?"

The young man responds, "If left on the beach 'til the noonday sun, they will die."

"But," protests the old man, "the beach goes on for miles and there are millions of starfish. How can your effort make any difference?"

Looking at the starfish in his hand, the young man replies, "It makes a very real difference to this one."
