THE STARFISH

One day a man was walking along the beach
when he noticed a figure in the distance.

As he got closer he realized the figure was
that of a boy picking something up and
gently throwing it into the ocean.

Approaching the boy, he asked,
"What are you doing?"

The youth replied, "Throwing starfish into the
ocean.  The sun is up and the tide is going
out.  If I don't throw them in, they will die."

"Son," the man said, "Don't you realize there
are miles and miles of beach and hundreds of
starfish?  You can't possibly make a difference!"

After listening politely, the boy bent down, picked
up another starfish, and threw it into the surf.

Then, smiling at the man, he said,
"I MADE A DIFFERENCE FOR
THAT ONE!"
Never think that what you do doesn't matter.
Even one small act of kindness can change
someone's life forever.  You CAN make
that difference!
