DEDICATED TO PEOPLE IN RESCUE
--Author Unknown
As I walked along the seashore
This young boy greeted me
He was tossing stranded starfish
Back to the Deep Blue Sea.
I said "Tell me why you bother,
Why you waste your time this way
There's a million stranded Starfish
Does it matter, anyway?"





And he said "It matters to this one,
It deserves a chance to grow.
It matters to this one
I can't save them all I know.
But it matters to this one
I'll return it to the sea
It matters to this one,
And it matters to me."
I walked into the Shelter
The owner greeted me
She was helping Misty learn to trust
She was struggling I could see.
I said, "Tell me why you bother,
Why you waste your time this way.
Misty's only one of thousands,
Does it matter anyway?"
And she said "It matters to this one,
She deserves a chance to grow.
It matters to this one
I can't save them all I know.
But it matters to this one
I'll help her be what she can be
It matters to this one
And it matters to me."
