Hi, I'm Martial Arts Master Bill FitzPatrick

One morning, an old man was walking along a beach.

Off in the distance he could see a person

going back and forth between

the surf's edge and the beach.

Back and forth.

Back and forth

Over and over again

Back and forth

As the old man approached he could see that the person was in fact, a young boy

who was tossing starfishes back into the sea -

one by one by one

There were MILES of these starfish

hundreds - thousands

The man chuckled at the laughable futility of the boy's task.

The old man said to the boy,

"Kid, You must be CRAZY.

The whole beach is covered with starfish.

Get real, tossing back those starfish one at a time

One by one CAN'T possibly make a difference."

The boy stopped to pick up ONE more starfish and threw that ONE starfish back into the ocean.

The Boy - then - said to the old man,

"You're right , but, it will make a difference to that ONE!"
