Making a Difference

Recommended Posts

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!"
