Yesterday I was thinking all day about how happy I am, thankful for everything I have, and at the same time, I felt that something was wrong, that I live in the bubble of happiness and wear the pink glasses.
I don’t watch TV, I don’t read newspapers… I pretend that I know nothing that is going on in this cruel world? May I closed myself in the eternal illusion of ‘think positively’? Until one day will happen something terrible… and I will not believe why me, why the world is doing nothing, why no one is helping me?
And I remember another story about a girl who was gathering starfishes at the seaside in Fuerteventura and throwing back them into the water. Thousands of stars were washed out on ashore after the storm.
– Why are you saving them? After all, there are so many that you can make no difference? asked the passing man.
“But that’s a difference to a star …” the girl replied.

Can we make a difference to the world helping to one human?
