The Boy and the Starfish Story In English
Once upon a time, there was a boy who loved to take long walks along the beach. One day, as he was walking, he noticed something unusual. There were thousands of starfish that had been washed up onto the shore, and they were all struggling to survive.
The boy felt sad when he saw this, and he decided that he needed to do something to help. So he started picking up the starfish one by one and throwing them back into the ocean. It was a slow and difficult task, but the boy was determined to save as many starfish as he could.
As he was throwing the starfish back into the water, an old man came up to him and asked, “Why are you doing this? There are so many starfish here, and you can’t possibly save them all. What difference will it make?”
The boy thought for a moment and then looked up at the old man. He held up a starfish in his hand and said, “It will make a difference to this one.”
With that, he threw the starfish back into the ocean, and the old man walked away. The boy continued to pick up the starfish one by one, and as he did, other people on the beach noticed what he was doing and joined in to help.
Eventually, they were able to save many of the starfish that had been washed up onto the shore. And even though they couldn’t save them all, they had made a difference to the ones they had saved.
