Once there was a great storm that washed thousands of starfish up onshore.
As an old man walked the beach he saw a young boy picking
up stranded starfish and quickly returning them to the sea.
The man approached the boy and said, "What are you doing? The sun is rapidly rising. What difference does it make? They're all going to die anyway."
As the boy rose from picking up another starfish he said, "What difference does it make? It will make a difference to this one." Then he turned and set the starfish free.
