A man was strolling along a beach in the early morning. He noticed that the morning tide brought hundreds of starfish, and that when the tide went out, they were left behind and would perish from the morning sun’s rays. Fresh tide and living starfish were present. The man walked a short distance, selected one, and then threw it into the ocean. He repeatedly did that. Another individual who was just behind him was perplexed by what this man was doing. When he caught up to him, he said, “What are you doing? There are a large number of starfish. How many can you assist? How does it affect anything? Instead of responding, this man proceeded two more steps, picked up another one, and flung it into.
What real impact are we having? It doesn’t matter if it’s big or small. We would eventually have a large difference if everyone made even a modest difference, wouldn’t we?
