“Starfish Children”

August 20, 2010

I received an e-mail from Daria of  HOW and in it she spoke of their new “Starfish Children” program! Put into the e-mail was a copy of the story that inspired them to create this program; I urge all to read this and think about how much “change reaction” we can create by following the moral of this story and how much change HOW will bring by having this as the philosophy behind their program. It is truly inspirational and amazing!!

The Stroy:

The Starfish Story
Original Story by: Loren Eisley
One day a man was walking along the beach when he noticed
a boy picking something up and gently throwing it into the ocean.
Approaching the boy, he asked, “What are you doing?”
The youth replied, “Throwing starfish back into the ocean.
The surf is up and the tide is going out. If I don’t throw them back, they’ll die.”
“Son,” the man said, “don’t you realize there are miles and miles of beach and hundreds of starfish?
You can’t make a difference!”
After listening politely, the boy bent down, picked up another starfish,
and threw it back into the surf. Then, smiling at the man, he said…”
I made a difference for that one.”

Happy Hatching,
