A young girl was walking along the beach upon which thousands of starfish had been washed up during a terrible storm. When she came up to each starfish, she would pick it up and throw it back into the ocean.

She had been doing this for some time when a man approached her and said, “Little girl, why are you doing this? Look at the beach! You can’t save all these starfish. You can’t begin to make a difference!”

The girl seemed crushed, suddenly deflated. But after a few moments, she picked up another starfish, and hurled it as far as she could into the ocean. Then she looked up at the man, and replied, “I made a difference to that one.”
