One day a hurricane washed up thousands of starfish during the night. In the morning, a little boy runs along the beach and carefully throws the starfish back into the sea.

 

An older man watches him and asks: “Does it make any sense, kid? The few starfish that you throw in compared to the thousands that are lying on the beach here, they will all die!”

 

The little boy picks up a starfish and throws him softly into the sea. Then he says to the old man: “It makes a difference. For this guy for sure!”
