As the old man walked on the beach at dawn, he noticed a young man ahead of him picking up starfish & flinging them into the sea. Finally catching up with the youth, he asked him why he was doing this. The answer was that the stranded starfish would die if left in the morning sun. "But the beach goes on for miles & there are millions of starfish,"
countered the old man. "How can your effort make any difference?" The young man looked at the starfish in his hand & then threw it to safety in the waves. "It makes a difference to this one," he said.
