Sunday Thought

One day a man was walk­ing along the beach when he noticed
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 back into the ocean.
The surf is up and the tide is going out. If I don’t throw them back, they’ll die.”

“Son,” the 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 boy bent down, picked up another starfish,
and threw it back into the surf. Then, smil­ing at the man, he said…”
I made a dif­fer­ence for that one
