The Starfish Story

A wise man was taking a sunrise walk on the beach...

 In the distance he caught sight of a little girl who seemed to be dancing along the waves. As he got closer, he saw the little girl picking up starfish from the sand and tossing them gently back into the ocean.

“What are you doing?” the wise man asked?

“The sun is coming up and the tide is going out. If I don’t throw them in, they’ll die.”

“But little girl, there are miles and miles of beach with starfish all along the way, you can’t possibly make a difference.”

 The little girl bent down, picked up another starfish and threw it lovingly back into the ocean past the breaking waves, “It made a difference to that one.” She replied.

We are all gifted
 with the power
 the opportunity
to make a difference
in the life of a child
a family
a person.

20. Help for Disabled Persons

Help for Disabled Persons

A child or adult who is disabled may be discouraged by a lack of purpose or meaning to life. Any new ideas or opportunities you can bring to that child or adult can truly be life changing. Sometimes even one simple idea can really make a difference.


Possible Programs

  1. Develop a sports program for one or more disabled children or adults.
  2. Fund and distribute computer software programs that enrich the lives of disabled persons.
  3. Become an advocate for people to look at the abilities of persons instead of their disabilities.
  4. Discover and install simple things that will help a disabled person in their home.
