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.
