I was walking on the beach the other day
when I saw, in the distance, a man who
appeared to be doing calisthenics.  As I
drew closer, I could see that he wasn't
exercising, but picking up and throwing
back into the ocean, live starfish
that had washed up with the tide. The
sand was covered with thousands of
starfish, stranded from the life giving
ocean. "What are you doing?" I asked.
  "There are too many, you can't make a
difference."  The man looked up from his
task, holding a starfish in his hand,"You see
this one? It will make a difference to him."
