Making the Difference

A pensioner was walking along the beach, when he came upon a part of the shore where thousands of starfish had washed ashore.

A little further down the beach he saw a young woman, who was picking up the starfish one at a time and tossing them back into the ocean.

“Oh you silly girl,” he exclaimed. “You can’t possibly save all of these starfish. There’s too many.”

The woman smiled and said, “I know. But I can save this one, ” and she tossed another into the ocean, “and this one”, toss, “and this one…”

Each act of caring, each act of kindness is critical. Never stop from doing what you know to be the “right thing” because you think you can’t make a difference. Because in effect, you are.
