One day during high tide on the beach brought a lot of starfish. Came the tide, and a lot of them became dry in the sun.
Boy, walking along the shore, began throwing stars in the sea, so that they can continue their way of life.
A man approached him and asked:
- Why are you doing this? It's just silly! Look! Here millions of starfish, beach just littered with them. Your pathetic attempts to change nothing!
The boy picked up the next starfish, thought for a moment, threw it into the sea, and said:
- No, my attempts to change a lot ... for this star.
