"Good morning! May I ask what it is that you are doing?"
The young man paused, looked up, and replied "Throwing starfish into the ocean."
Upon hearing this, the wise man commented, "But, young man, do you not realize that there are miles and miles of beach and there are starfish all along every mile? You can't possibly make a difference!"
At this, the young man bent down, picked up yet another starfish, and threw it into the ocean. As it met the water, he said,
"It made a difference for that one.”
This past weekend I was honored and privileged to photograph an event for the Resiliency Center of Newtown. Here's just a little sneak peek of the starfish details at the Gala. Let us all be star throwers.
