"The Starfish Story"
A well-known author was vacationing on a beautiful coast. One morning, very early, he was walking along the beach.
In the distance, he saw a lone figure dancing. Fascinated by this celebration of the dawn, he moved closer.
It was then that he realized that a young man was not dancing, but was picking objects up from the beach and tossing them out into the sea with a graceful movement.
As he approached the young man, he saw that he was throwing starfish."Why in the world are you throwing starfish into the water," he asked.
"If the starfish are still on the beach when the tide goes out and the sun rises higher in the sky, they will die," replied the young man as he continued tossing them out to sea.
"That's ridiculous! There are thousands of miles of beach and millions of starfish. You can't really believe that what you are doing could possibly make a difference?"
The young man picked up another starfish, paused thoughtfully, and remarked as he tossed it out into the waves,
"It makes a difference to this one."

One hundred years from now, it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove....but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child.
