This evening I watched the story of Damilola Taylor. He was the ten year old child that lost his life after being stabbed in London.
It was shocking to think of a child loosing his life this way. I hope that he has been reborn in Amidas pure land where he now resides.
The father of Damilola, Richard Taylor has started to work with disadvantaged youth, trying to show them how to live wholesome lives that are free from drugs violence and hatred.
This reminded me of the story of the young boy on the beach.
The boy is observed by a passerby running up and down the beach, picking up star fish and throwing them back into the ocean. The passerby goes over to the boy and asks ” what are you doing?”
The boy replies ” these star fish have been washed up by the ocean and will die if I don’t help them”.
The passerby says ” you will never save them all there are too many”.
The boy replies ” I know, but what if I save just one “.
