“ There are so many Strays on the streets. How many can you save?” – This is what we always hear but we believe we make a Difference if .…We Choose
One day a man was walking along the beach when he noticed a figure in the distance.As he got closer, he realized that the figure was that of a boy picking something up and gently throwing it into the ocean.
Approaching the boy, he asked, “What are you doing?”
The youth replied, “Throwing a starfish into the ocean. The sun 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 possibly make a difference!”
After listening politely, the boy bent down,picked up another starfish, and threw it into the surf.
Then, smiling at the man, he said,“I made a difference for that one.”
