Make A Change

Posted on

One day a man was walking along the beach when he noticed a boy hurriedly 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. if i don't throw them back, they'll die.

The man laughed to himself and said, don't you realize there are miles and miles of beach and hundreds 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 for that one.

    The above beautiful story was posted on my birthday—so I must share! It resonates with one of my favorite quotes: “Let everyone sweep in front of his own door, and the whole world would be
    clean . .” Goethe
