I can save this one.

Good story:

An old man once walked along the beach. Suddenly in the distance he saw colours on the beach. He went over to see what it was. It turns out that these were starfish. There were so many of them washed up from the sea. Though he was amazed, he didn’t think about it twice and just went further for a walk when he saw a child – this child was throwing starfish into the ocean. One by one. The old man walked up to him and said: “What are you doing? There are so many of them – you won’t be able to save them all!” To this the child replied: “I might not be able to save them all.” The child picked up a starfish and said: “But I can save this one. And this one. And this one.”
