As a young man walked on the beach in the early morning hours, he noticed an old man ahead of him, walking along the beach. Every so often, he bent over and picked up something and gently tossed it into the ocean. He repeated this process over and over. Finally, catching up with the old man, the young man saw that he had picked up a starfish stranded by the tide, and was preparing to throw it back into the ocean. He asked what he was doing and the old man explained that the stranded starfish would die when the morning sun grew hotter. The young man looked down the endless beach. He knew that there were thousands of starfish stranded on this shore on this particular morning. Curious, he asked the old man, "The beach goes on for miles and there are thousands of starfish, so how does your effort make any difference?" The old man looked at the starfish in his hand and then tossed it into the waves. "It made a difference to that one."We firmly believe that a difference can be made by one individual, and more importantly, that if only one person's life can be changed for the better - that is worthwhile. Love and kindness and generosity will always matter, whether it's towards one person or a hundred or a thousand.
