The Starfish Principle

While walking along a beach, an elderly gentleman saw someone in the distance leaning down to pick something up and throw it into the ocean.

 

As he got closer, he noticed that the figure was a young boy, picking up starfish one by one and tossing each gently back into the water.

 

Approaching the boy, he asked, “What are you doing?”

 

The young man replied, throwing a starfish into the ocean. “The surf is up and the tide is going out. If I don’t throw them in, they’ll die.”

 

The elderly man said, “But, young man, there are miles and miles of beach and hundreds of starfish. You can’t possibly make a difference!”

 

After listening politely, the boy bent down, picked up another starfish, and threw it back into the surf. Then, smiling at the man, he said, “I made a difference for that one.”
