Make a difference to someone

A man was walking down the beach at sunset. As, he walked along, he
saw another man in the distance. He noticed this man kept leaning
down, picking up something and throwing it out into the water, again and again. As, he
approached even closer, he noticed that the man was picking up starfish that
had been washed up on the beach. He was throwing them back into the water,
one by one.
Puzzled, he approached the man and said,
“Good Evening. I was wondering what you are doing.”
“I’m throwing these starfish back into the ocean. You see, it’s low
tide and all these starfish have been washed up onto the shore. If, I
don’t throw them back into the ocean, they’ll die up here from lack of
“But, there must be thousands of starfish on this beach. You can’t possible
get to all of them. And, don’t you realize this is probably happening on
hundreds of beaches all up and down this coast. Can’t you see that you can’t
possibly make a difference?”
The man bent down and picked up yet another starfish, and threw it back into
the ocean. With a smile he replied, “Made a difference to that one!!!”
Just remember, no matter how small the deed
it really does makes a difference.
Make a difference today.
Do something nice for someone else,
even if it’s just sending this card to a friend and
letting them know somebody cares about them.
