Making a Difference

One day a man was walking along the beach when he noticed a boy picking something up and throwing it into the ocean. Approaching the boy he asked, "What are you doing?"The boy replied, "Throwing starfish back into the ocean. The surf is up and the tide is going out. If I don't throw them back they'll die." 
"Son," the man said, "Don't you realize there are miles and miles of beach and hundreds of starfish? You can't make a difference."
After listening politely, the boy bent down, picked up another starfish, and threw it back into the surf. Then, smiling at the man, he said, "I made a difference for that one."

Sometimes there are people that come into our lives, even if for only for a moment, and made big changes in our lives.  Other times, we are the people that crosses paths with others who need us... So take each opportunity to make a difference to someone.  The life you change, could be your own.
