An old man was walking an ocean shoreline littered with hundreds
of starfish. He observed a young boy attempting to save them
by throwing them back into the water.
“You can’t save them all,” said the old man.
“And besides, what difference will it really make?”
The young boy picked up another, threw it in the water and said,
“I’m not sure, but I think it will make a difference to that one!”
