First, be sure you have read the item below this one...

...now you can read on. The comedians call that, 'the set-up.'

With the universe so unbelievably large, how can we possibly see ourselves as vital, insignificant as we are in the scheme of things. One of my favorite stories:

Two men were walking on the beach, naturally littered with washed-on-the-shore starfish. Every few steps, one of the men would stop, pick up a starfish and throw it back into the sea. After this had happened about half-dozen times, the other man chided him.

"Why are you doing that? There are thousands of starfish on the beach. You really can't make a difference."

First man flipped the starfish he was holding back into the ocean. "I can to that one."

Moral of the story: Everyone can make a difference to someone. So what are you waiting for?
