making a difference

a well known author and poet was working and vacationing on the southern coast of morning,very early,he was walking along the beach.
the sun was just shining,the rain had ended,the rainbow were magnificent,the sea calm.while enjoying the beauty about him,he glanced down the beach and a saw a lonely figure dancing about.
fascinated by this other person celebrating that day that was to dawn,he moved he came nearer,he realized that young man was not dancing,but in one graceful movement was picking objects up off the beach and tossing them into the he approached the young man,he saw that objects were starfish.

"why in the world are you throwing starfish into the water?"he asked.

"if the starfish are still on the beach when the tide goes out and the sun rises higher in the sky,they will die"replied the man as he continued tossing them out to sea.

"thats ridiculous!!!there are miles of beach and millions of cant really believe that what you doing could possibly make a difference."

the young man picked up another starfish,paused thoughtfully and remarked as he tossed it out into the waves,"it makes a difference to this one"
