THE STARFISH STORY
While walking on the beach one day,
I saw Starfish by the score.
And everywhere i looked it seemed,
I saw a thousand more.
Then what to my surprise appeared?
A boy of nine or ten;
and as the Starfish washed ashore,
he threw them back again.
I smiled at such a futile task to save this population.
“One fish won’t make a difference son. You can’t change this situation.”
He stooped and picked up one more fish, then looking right at me ,
“I can make a difference for this one, sir,” and returned it to the sea.
So I went and gathered all my friends, my brothers and my cousins.
We joined in with that little boy and saved Starfish by the dozens.
There are still many to be rescued-many “Starfish” on life’s shore.
