The boy and the starfish

Posted on

A young boy walks across a beach at low tide. To his horror, he finds the large expanse of sand covered by literally thousands of stranded starfish – all of whom will die as the sun dries them out. Frantically, the boy starts to gather them up one by one and to carry them back to the sea.
“Don’t be silly”, admonishes his parent. “You cannot possibly make a difference with so many starfish. You cannot save them all”.
“Perhaps not”, replies the boy, “but I can make a difference to the ones that I do save!” – Author unknown

This is indeed a powerful message. It is also a powerful parable. There is always a way to make the difference.
The question is “Do you want to make the difference?”
Which actions will you take today so to make a difference around you?

I’d be happy if you would share me some feedbacks
