Making A Difference [Jan. 29th, 2014|08:43 pm]
Tony Grist
We were listening to a debate on the radio about whether it's anything more than an idle political gesture for Britain to take in a handful of Syrian refugees and Ailz was reminded of a story that goes like this...

Thousands of starfish have been stranded on a beach; a little boy is throwing them back in the sea.

Along comes an old wiseacre. "What's the point?" he says. "There are too many of them. You're not making any difference."

And the little boy throws another starfish and says, "Well I made a difference to that one."

"A journey of a million miles begins with one step".

One is a good place to start. I like this story.

Yes.

Better to do something- however inadequate- than nothing at all.

Or it may seem futile but it ould be more futile doing nothing at all.
