What Do You Stand For?
The Starfish and the Boy
A man and his son took a long walk on the beach. The boy saw a starfish on the sand and gently tossed it back into the ocean.
“Be free!” shouted the boy, playfully.
He found another starfish, and then another. These too he rescued from the hot, dry beach.
“How long are you going to do this?” asked the man. “There are millions of starfish on this beach. It won’t make a difference if you save a couple.”
The boy looked at his father, puzzled.
"It made a difference to those starfish, Daddy."
