Thank you, you made a difference for this Bridge Kid.

One day a man was walking along the beach when he noticed a figure in the distance. As he got closer, he realized 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 boy replied “throwing a starfish into the ocean. The sun is up and the tide is going down. 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”.
