You Can Make A Difference.

Catherine Pulsifer(Authoress)

A story I heard  many years ago, tells of how one person

made a difference. Early one evening a man was walking

along a beach when he saw a boy picking up starfish and

flinging them into the sea. The man asked the boy why he

was doing this. The boy explained the starfish would die

if left to the morning. The man asked the boy, ”What difference

will your efforts make when there are thousands of starfish

on the beach?” The boy stopped and looked at the starfish

he was holding and said,”It will make a difference to this one.”

The story reminds me of the quote from Edward Everett Hale:

”I am only one, but still I am one.I cannot do everything,

but still I can do something; and because I cannot do everything,

I will not refuse to do something I can do.”

There are a countless number of opportunities where we can

make a difference every day. At times, however, we do not

take action because we think we can only do a little and

it won’t make a difference.

However, the story and the quote above reminds us that

even if we can only do a little, we can make a difference.

It is all in your own attitude.
