It’s the first day of the year and I have been thinking about peace, how we can
find it in our hearts, and how i still believe we can make a difference in the world.
It’s a big task! Big to even think about. So I remembered the wonderful story of
the starfish. Some of you might know it. It’s good to remember, if you have heard
it before. And for those who find it new, I think you’ll find it such a beautiful
There is a wonderful story about two women who were walking along
the beach. They saw hundreds of starfish, which had been left on the
shore from a recent storm. One woman began throwing the starfish
back into the sea.
« Why are you doing that? You can’t save all those starfish, » said the
« But I can save this one. And this one. And this one. »
So it is with us. We can help, one person at a time.
Today I am doing whatever I can to make at
least one person’s life a little brighter.
May you be filled with peace and joy and happiness and health and love and may you
pass it on!
With love and peace,
