She tells a story about a child that sees that the tide has washed up on the shore, thousands of starfish.
So he picks up on and throws it back into the ocean. A man comes by and asks what he’s doing so he explains what happened.
The man says:
“What’s the point? There’s too many on the beach. What you’re doing… it’s not going to matter.”
The child looks down, throws another starfish into the ocean, and says:
“I think it mattered to that one.”
