It is the Small Things that Make A Big Difference

Starfish by Peter Cade

There was a man taking a morning walk at the beach. He saw that along with the morning tide came hundreds of starfish and when the tide receded, they were left behind and with the morning sunrays, they would die.

The tide was fresh and the starfish were alive. The man took a few steps, picked one and threw it into the water. He did that repeatedly. Right behind him there was another person who couldn't understand what this man was doing.

He caught up with him and asked "What are you doing? There are hundreds of starfish. How many can you help? What difference does it make?"

This man did not reply, he took two more steps, picked up another one, threw into the water and said, "It makes a difference to this one."

Moral of the Story:
We all can make a difference to the lives of others - big or small, it doesn't matter.
If everyone makes a small difference, we would end up with a big difference, wouldn't we?
