The Parabel of the Starfish
On the beach lie countless starfish washed up by the current. A girl takes one starfish after another into her hand and throws them back into the ocean. When a man comes by he says: “Don’t you see that the entire beach is full of starfish? You’ll never be able to save all of them! What you are doing does not change a thing!” The girl carefully picks up the next starfish from the ground and shows it to him so that he can see its distinctive characteristics and replies to him “For this specific starfish it will make a difference!” and then she throws it back into the ocean as far as she can.
