The Starfish Story - Making a Difference
Everyone of us, in our own unique way, can make a difference in the lives of animals. We cannot let despair get in the way.
One day an old man was walking along the beach. It was low tide, and the sand was littered with thousands of stranded starfish that the waves had carried in, then left behind. The man found himself walking carefully so as not to step on any of the beautiful creatures. Since the animals still seemed to be alive, he considered picking some of them up and putting them back in the water, where they could resume their lives. The man knew the starfish would die if left on the beach's dry sand.
He reasoned that he could not possibly help them all, so he chose to do nothing. "That is just Nature's way," he thought to himself a little sadly, then walked on. Soon he came across a little boy who was frantically throwing one starfish after another back into the sea.
The old man stopped. "Young man," he said, "what are you doing?"
"I'm saving the starfish," the boy said.
"Why waste your time?" the old man argued. "There are so many, you can't save them all. So what difference does it make?"
The boy stopped for just a few seconds, then bent to pick up another starfish. "It matters to this one," he said, and hurled the starfish into the welcoming sea.
