Every hear someone say nothing changes? I mean evil, hurt, and pain are so prevalent in the world that any effort for change seems futile.
I heard a story, a parable of sorts, from a friend who heard it from someone else, so I am passing it along to you.
A man would wake up every morning to go walk along the beach, and every morning thousands of starfish would wash up onto shore. The man made it his habit to pick up starfish while he walked, and one by one, throw them back into the water.
Another man noticed this, and confronted the man with cynicism and disdain,
“Why do you do this? Do you see all these starfish for miles and miles?! You will never reach all of them, why does it even matter???”
The man looked at the stranger, reached down
and picked up another starfish,
and threw it back into the water, and with tear filed eyes replied,
“It matters to that one.”
