    Found this poem and loved it, thought I’d share ! I don’t take credit for this and the author is unknown.

    It Matters To Me
    As I walked along the seashore
    This young boy greeted me.
    He was tossing stranded starfish
    Back to the deep blue sea.
    I said “Tell me why you bother,
    Why you waste your time this way.
    There’s a million stranded starfish
    Does it matter, anyway?”
    And he said, “It matters to this one.
    It deserves a chance to grow.
    It matters to this one.
    I can’t save them all I know.
    But it matters to this one,
    I’ll return it to the sea.
    It matters to this one,
    And it matters to me.”
    I walked into the shelter,
    The owner greeted me.
    She was helping Misty learn to trust.
    She was struggling I could see.
    I said, “Tell me why you bother,
    Why you waste your time this way.
    Misty’s only one of thousands,
    Does it matter anyway?”
    And she said, “It matters to this one.
    She deserves a chance to grow.
    It matters to this one.
    I can’t save them all I know.
    But it matters to this one,
    I’ll help her be what she can be.
    It matters to this one,
    And it matters to me.

    I love this mostly because the number one argument I get against veganism is that “one person not eating animal products isnt going to change anything”. this is a nice reminder that even if you save only 1 cow from a short life full of torture, it matters!
