"As a man walked a desolate beach one cold, grey morning he began to see another figure, far in the distance. Slowly the two approached each other, and he could make out a girl who kept leaning down, picking something up and throwing it out into the water. Time and again she hurled things into the ocean. As the distance between them continued to narrow, the man could see that the girl was picking up starfish that had been washed upon the beach and, one at a time, was throwing them back into the water. Puzzled, the man approached the native and asked what she was doing.
The girl 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.
The old man said, don’t you realize there are miles and miles of beach and hundreds of starfish?
You can’t make a difference!
After listening politely, the girl bent down, picked up another starfish,
and threw it back into the surf. Then, smiling at the man, she said
I made a difference for that one."
Each of us is but one person: limited, burdened with our own cares and responsibilities. We may feel there is so much to be done, and we have so little to give. We're usually short of everything, especially time and money. When we leave this shore, there will still be millions of starfish stranded on the beach. Maybe we can't change the whole world, but there isn't one of us who can't help change one person's whole world. One at a time. We can make a difference.
