About Me While walking along a beach, an elderly gentleman saw someone in the distance leaning down, picking something up and throwing it into the ocean.

As he got closer, he noticed that the figure was that of a young man, picking up starfish one by one and tossing each one gently back into the water.

He came closer still and called out, �Good morning! May I ask what it is that you are doing?�

The young man paused, looked up, and replied �Throwing starfish into the ocean.�

The old man smiled, and said, �I must ask, then, why are you throwing starfish into the ocean?�

To this, the young man replied, �The sun is up and the tide is going out. If I don�t throw them in, they�ll die.�

Upon hearing this, the elderly observer commented, �But, young man, do you not realise that there are miles and miles of beach and there are starfish all along every mile? You can�t possibly make a difference!�

The young man listened politely. Then he bent down, picked up another starfish, threw it into the back into the ocean past the breaking waves and said, �It made a difference for that one.�
