man was walking down the beach at sunset. As, he walked along,
he saw another man in the distance. He noticed this man kept
leaning down, picking up something and throwing it out into
the water, again and again. As, he approached even closer,
he noticed that the man was picking up starfish that had been
washed up on the beach. He was throwing them back into the
water, one by one.
he approached the man and said,
"Good Evening. I was wondering what you are doing."
throwing these starfish back into the ocean. You see, it's
low tide and all these starfish have been washed up onto the
shore. If I don't throw them back into the ocean, they'll
die up here from lack of oxygen."
there must be thousands of starfish on this beach. You can't
possibly get to all of them. And, don't you realize this is
probably happening on hundreds of beaches all up and down
this coast. Can't you see that you can't possibly make a difference?"
man bent down and picked up yet another starfish, and threw
it back into the ocean. With a smile he replied, "Made
a difference to that one !!!"
remember, no matter how small the deed,
it really does makes a difference.
Make a difference today. Do something for someone, even a
tiny deed filled with love, will make you a Star in the ocean.
