Starfish

Note: This is paraphrased from the original, but you'll get the drift.

As I was walking on the beach one afternoon after a storm, I saw thousands upon thousands of starfish washed up on the shore, dying in the sun.

A little ways down the beach, I came upon a little boy, picking up the starfish and throwing them back into the sea. I knelt down and said, "Little boy, why are you doing this? There are thousands of starfish here, and you're just one person. What difference can you make?"

The boy smiled as he picked up another starfish and threw it into the sea. "It made a difference to him."
