Just Me!

Posted by Ronn Newby on

This is my first blog...ever! I normally give wonderful advice in the classroom but very rarely do I ever state my opinion on an electronic platform. So, with that being said, here is my first blog.

I started this business, B&H General Store, because I saw a need in my community and the world to help people. What could I do? After looking around, I noticed a common theme: people from around the world, including here in the United States, needs help. What could I do? It's just me! What could I do to make a difference in the world? I then remembered a story that I read a long time ago. I am not for sure if its true or not but it made me help realize that I can in fact make a difference. I hope you live each day as a 

Here is the story:

One day, an old man was walking along a beach that was littered with thousands of starfish that had been washed ashore by the high tide. As he walked he came upon a young boy who was eagerly throwing the starfish back into the ocean, one by one.

Puzzled, the man looked at the boy and asked what he was doing. Without looking up from his task, the boy simply replied, “I’m saving these starfish, Sir”.

The old man chuckled aloud, “Son, there are thousands of starfish and only one of you. What difference can you make?”

The boy picked up a starfish, gently tossed it into the water and turning to the man, said, “I made a difference to that one!” Original Story by Loren Eisley

So my question to you....what are you going to do now?
