You may have heard this story before:
A man at the beach sees thousands of starfish washed ashore by the tide. He notices a young girl throwing them back into the sea, one by one. “Don’t bother!” he tells her. “There are too many starfish to save. What you’re doing won’t make a difference.”
The little girl throws another starfish into the water, turns to the man, and says, “It made a difference to that one!” Moved by her reply, the man joined her. Seeing them, other people join in. Through their efforts, many starfish were saved.
I share this story because in my view, victims of domestic violence are just like those starfish, washed up from the fear, exhaustion, the battle of surviving day in and day out.Victims need people with the heart of that little girl.
