• One day there was a business man who was on vacation. On this day he decided to head over to the beach, when he a arrived on the beach the tide had sunk back down to the ocean. When the water sunk back down it left hundreds of starfish scattered across the shore. Now the sun was rising higher in the sky and soon the starfish were going to be baked to death.

    He noticed a small boy walking down the beach, the boy would walk up to a starfish, pick it up and throw it back into the ocean. The boy continued to do this, when to boy came within speaking distance the man asked, "Why are you doing this, there is no way you can save all of them?"

    The boy looked down, picked up another starfish and threw it into the ocean, "To that single starfish, it has made all the difference." Then he walked down a little bit, picked up another starfish, and threw it into the ocean.
