As I now am working on an art exhibit and plans to grow The Hope for Mexico Foundation, I constantly run in to nay sayers. I don’t begrudge these people and I don’t feel sorry for them either, I’m just thankful that I don’t see the world in that way. I believe one small gesture can change the path of someone’s life. I am confident that my and my family’s small efforts to better Mexico, will make a difference, even if for just one person.
I read this today on a blog I follow and it lifted my spirits and solidified my beliefs.
The Starfish Thrower
For those of you who don’t know it:
A boy is walking along the beach when he stumbles across thousands of starfish that have been washed up. He starts to pick them up and throw them back in. A man approaches him and says, “Son, don’t bother. There are too many. You won’t make a difference.” The boy picks up another, throws it back in, and says, “I made a difference to that one.”
