The Share of one's own Life.

It was the seaside somewhere in the United Kingdom. A man woke up early in the morning and went out for a walk. The weather was really good. The sun was about to rise and that morning blueness was making everything look pretty. The man kept on walking and after few yards saw a young boy who was bending down, picking something up and throwing it in the sea. Looking curiously the man went near the boy. He saw that there were many starfishes on the sand which were pushed on the shore by the sea waves over the course of night. The water was moving back going and the starfishes would probably die within a few minutes. That boy was efficiently picking up the fishes one by one and throwing them into the sea water again. The man stood there, watched for a couple of minutes and said to the boy;

' Dear boy, there are thousands of fishes here, your little help will not be enough to save them all'.

The boy smiled, picked up another star fish, threw it into the water and replied.

'Sir you are right, but my little help made a difference to this fish. It got a new life, the more lives I save the more difference I will make'.
