One Starfish

One day a writer visits the beach to find inspiration to his poems. There he sees a shadow far away, it looks like a man dancing. As he comes closer to this shadow, the writer sees a young man picking up one starfish at a time and throwing them back to the ocean.
- Why are you throwing the starfishes in the ocean?
- Soon the sun will rise higher, and the tides will come. If I don't throw them in the ocean, they will die.
- This beach is many miles long, there must be thousands of starfishes. What's the difference?
The young man picks yet another starfish and throws it in the ocean.
- It is a difference for that one starfish..
