An old man was going for a walk on the beach, when he noticed a little boy feeding a thin, shaggy looking dog with bits of bread.
He went up to him and asked him why he was sharing his bread with the dogs.
The little boy answered: “Because they have nothing. No home, no family, and if I don’t feed them they will die”.
“But there are homeless dogs everywhere”, the old man replied. “So your efforts don’t really make a difference”.
The little boy looked at the dog and stroked him. “But for him, for this little dog, it makes all the difference in the world”.
