There was a man taking a morning walk at the beach. He saw that along with the morning tide came hundreds of starfish, but when the tide receded the starfish  were left behind and that with the morning’s sun growing hotter they would die.

The tide had just begun to recede yet the starfish were alive. The man took a few steps, picked one starfish and threw it into the water. He did this repeatedly. Right behind him there was another person who just couldn’t understand why this man was doing what he was. The person caught up with him and asked, “Why are you doing this? There are hundreds of starfish. How many can you help? So, what difference can tossing one starfish at a time back into the sea make?”

This man did not immediately reply, but took two more steps, picked up another starfish, threw it into the water, and said, “It makes a difference to this one. It makes a difference to me”

The other person picked up a starfish and threw it into the sea.

The End (?)

If you have tried to make a difference in another person’s life then you know how powerful your acts are. It is just as likely that we over look the added power that our effort had – we were unaware that another had observed what we had attempted. Now that other person follows our example.

    From an old work friend of mine who saw my blog post on Facebook:

    I remember when I lived in Allentown, there was an older gentleman who would wander down my street every trash day and pick up litter and drop it in trashcans along the way. A cup here, a piece of paper there. Not every piece of trash, but just a little here and there.

    I was sitting on my porch when this was happening one day and one of my more cantankerous neighbors saw him drop something in her trash and she yelled at him “how dare you touch my garbage? Stop it!” The older fellow turned to her… smiled… and pointed up the street and simply said “But doesn’t it look so much nicer this way?”

    For the rest of the time that I lived in that house, I’d see that cantankerous neighbor out taking a walk, picking up a little trash here and there. I tried to do the the same (and brought the habit with me when I moved) whenever/wherever I could. That fella was right – the street looks so much nicer that way.
