Make A Difference
This video is a modern adaptation of the “Starfish Story” originally written by Loren Eiseley in 1969. It’s a story about how important it is to make a difference in people’s lives, even if it is just one.
Below is the script for the video:
One day a man was walking along the beach, when he noticed a boy picking up starfish and throwing them into the ocean. Approaching the boy, he asked, “Excuse me, but what are you doing?”
The boy replied, “Throwing starfish back into the ocean. The sun is rising and tide is going out. If I don’t throw them back, they’ll die.”
The man laughed to himself and said, “But there’s too many starfish on this beach. You can’t possibly make a difference!”
After listening politely, the boy bent down, picked up another starfish and threw it into the ocean. Then, turning to the man, he said, “I made a difference to that one.”
You really can make a difference!
Yes there are a great many people who need help in various ways. But should we let that daunt us into non-action? Absolutely not! Should we step back and just let the system help them? No way! Helping even just 1 person can make all the difference in the world to that one person. And sometimes, showing a little love & kindness can literally save a life. Isn’t that worth it??
Please world… be kind to one another. We really are just one big earth family!
