Why take care of our brothers and sisters?

A young man is walking on a sea shore.

Ahead of him he sees a very old man picking up something in the sand and throwing it into the ocean.

“What are you doing?’ he asks.

The old man replies, “I am throwing this starfish into the sea so that it can live.

If I don’t do this, it will die on the sand.”

The young man laughs. “There are hundreds of beaches and millions of starfish in the world! Do you think that by throwing a couple of them into the sea it will make a difference?

The old man listens, then in silence picks up another starfish and throws it into the sea.

“It makes a difference to THAT STARFISH” and then he keeps on doing his work.
