How Did You Change The World Today?

Yesterday I changed the world, by saving about 30 lives: while on my daily beach walk with my dog, we came upon an entire colony of hermit crabs that had been stranded during low tide and would have died before high tide came back in, so I scoped them all up and took them back down to the water.

I have been doing this for 30+ years now, snails, clams, crabs, eels, starfish, sea worms, fish, jellyfish, once a shark, a few sting rays... I have been told on many occasions that this is pointless, because more will become stranded the next time the tide goes out and I can't save all of them. Well, so what if I can't save all of them, I don't care, but I'm not going to see an animal in need and not help it either. You have to be pretty cruel to see a helpless being (animal or human), who asks you for help and you just keep walking because, you don't see what good it would do to help them.

To many people think of changing the world in big ways, but think too big and never change anything. The world will change faster if more folks looked for little things they could do to change the world, as part of their daily lives.

Think big, but don't act, changes nothing.

Think small, act on it, and change everything.
