We all can make a difference in our small way.
I was out in the rain Monday delivering my business flyers. It appears this wet weather sparked a mass need to procreate amongst the snail populations as they swarmed out onto the pathways of Colchester. The problem for the snails was being trodden on, a fact visible as I walked along.
The larger of the snails, perhaps a dozen, I picked up and moved to a safe place. It seemed a pointless exercise as there were masses of them, and so many died under people’s feet. This reminded me of the starfish story, of a boy who threw back starfish into the sea amongst thousands of them; when challenged why he bothered, the boy threw one starfish into the sea, and said he had made a difference for that one.
