There was a Man walking along this very beach, picking up starfish and throwing them back in the water. A woman walking behind him asks why he is doing that. The Man says, "So they can live!"
Woman looks at the vast amount of stranded starfish and says "Look how many there are! Throwing the odd few back in can't possibly make a difference!"
Man picks up another starfish, throws it in the water and says, "Well I made a difference to that one"
Moral of the story, we can't always help everyone, but that's no reason not to try and help some . . .
Merry Christmas :)
