 When all is said and done, I can't change the world, but I can change the world for one. I believe that one person can make a difference and have tried to live by the message in the Starfish Story by Loren Eiseley.  Here is a modified version.

 A man was walking on the beach one day and noticed a young girl who was reaching down, picking up a starfish and throwing it in the ocean.  As he approached, he called out, “Hello!  What are you doing?”  The girl looked up and said, “I’m throwing these starfish back into the ocean. The tide stranded them.  If I don’t throw them in the water before the sun comes up, they’ll die” she said. The old man laughed and said “Surely you realize that there are miles of beach, and thousands of starfish.  You’ll never throw them all back, you can’t possibly make a difference.”  The girl listened politely, picked up another starfish and threw it back into the ocean.  She looked at the old man and smiled, “I just made a difference for that one.” 

I might not be able to change the entire world, but at least I can change a small part of it, for someone and so can you.
