Making a Difference
One Child at a Time


One day a man was walking along the beach when he noticed a boy picking up and gently throwing things into the ocean.

Approaching the boy he asked “Young man, what are you doing?”
The boy 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.”

The man laughed to himself and said, “Do you realize there are hundreds of miles of beach with millions of starfish? You can’t make any difference.” After listening politely, the boy bent down, picked up another starfish and threw it into the surf.

Then smiling at the man he said,

“I made a difference to that one.”
