As I walked on the beach one morning, I saw a little boy picking up starfish from the sand and flinging them back into the sea.
I asked him what he was doing.
“If I don’t save them, they will die in the noonday sun,” he replied.
“But there are thousands of starfish on this beach,” I replied. “What difference does it make to save just a few?”
He looked down at the starfish in his hand and flung it to safety in the waves.
“It makes a big difference to this one!” he said.
