Starfish

A small boy was walking along a beach at low tide, where countless starfish, having been washed up on the beach, were stranded and doomed to perish. A man watched as the boy picked up individual starfish and took them back into the water.

“I can see you’re being very kind,” said the watching man, “But there must be thousands of them; it can’t possibly make any difference.”

Returning from the water’s edge, the boy said, “It will for that one.”
