Starfish....

Got this as a fwd from a friend today and just wanted to share with all of you!! simply beautiful ... Read on....


A man was walking down the beach at sunset. 
As he walked along, he saw another man in the distance. 
He noticed this man kept leaning down, picking up something and throwing it out into the water again and again. 
As he approached even closer, he noticed that the man was picking up starfish that had been washed up on the beach. 
He was throwing them back into the  water, one by one.

Puzzled, he approached the man and said, 
"Good Evening. I was wondering what you are doing."
 
"I'm throwing these starfish back into the ocean.  You see, it's low tide and all these starfish have been washed up onto the shore.  If I don't throw them back into the ocean, they'll die up here from lack of oxygen."


                                         A starfish that got left behind... @Colva beach, Goa

"But there must be thousands of starfish on this beach.  You can't possibly get to all of them.  And, don't you realize this is probably happening on hundreds of beaches all up and down this coast.  Can't you see that you can't possibly make a difference?"

The man bent down and picked up yet another starfish, and threw it back into the ocean. 

With a smile he replied, 
"Made a difference to that one!"

Just remember, no matter how small the deed, it really does make a difference. 
Make a difference today. 
Do something nice for someone else, even if it's just sending this story to a friend and letting them know someone cares about them.

I had gone to my son S's school last week for his project discussion, and guess what? I have been asked to make a chart for this very story....but trust me, I did not know this story before the teacher asked me to hunt for pictures for it.....a brilliant story that!!!

Cheers,
Deepa

if he tries to throw the poor fishermen's catch back in to the sea, he'll be in a big trubbal ORTEEDEE.
