You Can Make A Difference!

Throughout the year, I will be presenting stories about individuals and/or groups that are making or have made a difference. The following is a tale adapted from The Star Thrower, by Loren Eiseley:

"A wise man used to go to the ocean to do his writing. One day, as he was walking along the shore he noticed a young man reaching down, picking up small objects, and throwing them into the ocean. He called out, 'Good Morning! May I ask what it is that you are doing?'

"The young man paused, looked up, and replied, 'Throwing starfish into the ocean.'

ď'Why are you throwing starfish into the ocean?' asked the somewhat startled wise man.

"To this, the young man replied, 'The sun is up and the tide is going out. If I donít throw them in, theyíll die.'

"Upon hearing this, the wise man commented, 'But, young man, do you not realize that there are miles and miles of beach and there are starfish along every mile? You canít possibly make a difference!'

"At this, the young man bent down, picked up yet another starfish, and threw it into the ocean. As it met the water, he said, 'It made a difference for that one.'"

Each of us can make a difference through the action we decide to take. We all have the ability to shape our future.

As we reflect upon our nationís birthday let us not forget what we stand for, and pray for all those who are in harm's way that they return home safely. God bless America!

Note from the Organizing and Outgoing President of the ROAL Club, Nancy Custer.

March 28, 2003
"This will be my last note to you, as President of the Anne Lowe Club. I have served two years and I would like to thank each of you for your support and help. I have enjoyed being in on the organization of a new club and have learned much.

The ROAL is a necessary and worth while group. The purpose of which is to support a military policy for the United States that will provide for our National Security. Our government needs more people, like us, who can and will show that support.

I would like to introduce you to your new slate of officers for the 2003-2004 year."
