The Starfish Story – Revised

There was a frail man walking down a deserted beach just before sunset. In the distance he saw a young boy. As he approached, the old man saw the boy throwing a net into the sea. The old man asked, “Young boy, why are you spending so much energy throwing your net into the sea? There are no fish there.”

The young boy explained that the net would stop the starfish from washing onto the beach that night and dying in the morning sun.

“But young boy,” replied the old man, “there are nice people here who spend their mornings throwing the starfish back into the sea.”

“Yes,” said the boy, “but there are thousands of beaches and millions of starfish! They are not able to reach every one.”

The old man looked out to sea and imagined all the starfish that would wash onto the beach that night. After a while, he helped the boy throw his net into the sea and exclaimed, “Your net makes a different for every one!”
