  纽约市林山区布福金斯家的电视突然关闭,顿时一阵恐慌。布福金斯首先想到的是起居室里他那台电视,于是他一个箭步奔进卧室,打开那台电视。上面什么图像也没有。这时,电话铃响了起来。布福金斯太太听到是她的妹妹说发生了无线电通讯中断。她挂上电话,对丈夫说:“不是你的电视问题。是帝国大厦顶部发生了故障。”
  布福金斯问:“你是谁?”
  “我是你的妻子爱迪丝呀。”
  “噢,”布福金斯说,“那么,我想那里的两个孩子都是我的吧。”
  “说的对,”布福金斯太太说,“如果你离开电视机前的那把扶手椅,你就会认识我们了。”
  “噢,他们的确已经长大了,”布福金斯说着,看了看两个儿女。“他们现在几岁了?”
  “一个13岁,一个14岁,”布福金斯太太回答说。
  “我真该死!你们好,孩子们。”
  “他是谁?”布福金斯的儿子亨利问。
  “那是你的父亲,”布福金斯太太说。
  “很高兴见到你,”布福金斯的女儿玛丽面带羞涩地说。四周一片寂静,令人非常尴尬。
  “嗨,”布福金斯最后说,“我知道自己不配做一名父亲,但既然电视现在停了,我想补偿你们一下。”
  “怎么补偿?”亨利问。
  “噢,我们就聊聊天吧,”布福金斯说,“这是我们增进了解的最好方法。”
  “你想聊什么?”玛丽问。
  “呃,作为小学生,你们上的是哪所学校?”
  “我们都上林山高级中学了,”亨利说。
  “怎么?”布福金斯问,“你们都已经上中学了?”
  “你干什么工作?”玛丽问道。
  “我想你是汽车推销员吧,”布福金斯太太惊讶地说。
  “那是两年前的事了。我没有给你说过我已经换工作了吗?”布福金斯吃惊地说。
  “没有,你没有说过。两年了,你什么也没对我说过。”
  “对,我一直干得很好,”布福金斯说。
  “那我为什么要每天去百货商店上班呢?”布福金斯太太厉声说道。
  “噢,你还在百货商店上班?”布福金斯说,“早知道这样,去年我就会告诉你辞掉那份工作的。你应该对我说一下才是。”
  又是一片死寂。最后,亨利开口说道:“嘿,你想听我弹吉他吗?”
  “我真该死。你知道怎样弹吉他吗?喂,我不是有个会弹吉他的女儿吗?”
  “那是苏茜,”布福金斯太太说。
  “她在哪里?”
  “她一年前就出嫁了,就是在你坐在电视机前观看世界职业棒球锦标赛那天。”

   Children Who Changed the World
  
  一Anne Frank
  Annelies Marie “Anne” Frank was a German-born Jewish girl from the city of Frankfurt. She gained international fame posthumously following the publication of her diary which documents her experiences hiding during the German occupation of the Netherlands in World War II.
  Anne and her family moved to Amsterdam in 1933 after the Nazis gained power in Germany, and were trapped by the occupation of the Netherlands, which began in 1940. As persecutions against the Jewish population increased, the family went into hiding in July 1942 in hidden rooms in her father Otto Frank’s office building. After two years, the group was betrayed and transported to concentration camps. Seven months after her arrest, Anne Frank died of typhus in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp, within days of the death of her sister, Margot Frank. Her father Otto, the only survivor of the group, returned to Amsterdam after the war to find that her diary had been saved, and his efforts led to its publication in 1947. It was translated from its original Dutch and first published in English in 1952 as The Diary of a Young Girl. Anne Frank has been acknowledged for the quality of her writing, and has become one of the most renowned and discussed of Holocaust victims.
  二、Samantha Smith
  Image: 1985 USSR Stamp with “Samantha Smith” in Cyrillic.
  Samantha Reed Smith was an American schoolgirl from Manchester, Maine who became famous in the Cold War-era United States and Soviet Union. In November 1982, when Smith was 10 years old, she wrote to Soviet leader Yuri Andropov, seeking to understand why the relations between the Soviet Union and the United States were so tense. Her letter was published in the Soviet newspaper Pravda. Samantha was happy to discover that her letter had been published, however, she had not received a reply. She then sent a letter to the Soviet Union’s Ambassador to the United States asking if Mr. Andropov intended to respond. On April 26, 1983, she received a response from Andropov. Smith attracted extensive media attention in both countries as a “Goodwill Ambassador”, and became known as “America’s Youngest Ambassador” participating in peacemaking activities in Japan. She wrote a book and co-starred in a television series, before her death at the age of 13 in the Bar Harbor Airlines Flight 1808 plane crash.
  三、Hector Pieterson
  Image: Sam Nzima’s famous June 16, 1976 photograph of Mbuyisa Makhubo carrying Hector Pieterson, accompanied by Hector’s sister, Antoinette.
  Hector Pieterson (1964 – 16 June 1976) became the iconic image of the 1976 Soweto up rising in apartheid South Africa when a news photograph by Sam Nzima of the dying Hector being carried by a fellow student, was published around the world. He was killed at the age of 12 when the police opened fire on protesting students. For years, June 16 stood as a symbol of resistance to the brutality of the apartheid government. Today, it is known as National Youth Day — a day on which South Africans honour young people and bring attention to their needs.

  offer one"s services as Mao Sui did-volunteer to do something
  
  This idiom comes from Records of the Historian·Biographies of Marquis Pingyuan. During the Warring States Period, the State of Qin led a large contingent of troops to attack the capital of the State of Zhao--Handan. The Marquis Pingyuan of Zhao was dispatched as a convoy to the State of Chu to ask for help. The Marquis wanted to choose 20 attendants to go with him, but he could only get 19 suitable men altogether.
  At the critical moment,a man named Mao Sui introduced himself andvolunteered tofilloutthe delegation. Then the Marquis said:"You have been here for three years already, but you didn"t show anything special. So this job is not suitable for you.But Mao Sui provided many reasons to support himself, the Marquis agreed with his request reluctantly.
  They arrived at the State of Chu and tried to persuade the King of Chu to send troops to help Zhao against Qin. But after a long negotiation, there was still no result.Suddenly, Mao Sui went forward with his hand on the hilt of his sword to the King and said:" A military alliance betweenChuandZhaoisclearly beneficial, why can"t you make a decision?" Hearing such impolite words in public, the King was in a towering rage and shouted: "What did you come for? Get out of here!" But Mao continued his words: "The alliance between Chu and Zhao is not only good for Zhao but also for Chu. Did you forget that the State of Qin had only led a small troop to occupy your capital before?" The King was convinced and agreed to make the alliance with Zhao. Afterwards, with the State of Chu and Wei"s help, Zhao forced Qin to raise a siege.
  Since then the Marquis Pingyuan ws filled with admiration at Mao Sui"s ability and employed him in a high post.
  Now we usually use it to describe self-recommondation for the important and difficult task.
  
  此语出《史记·平原君列传》。战国时期,秦军攻打赵国都城邯郸,赵王派其弟平原君去楚国求援。平原君准备带二十名文武随从前往,但只选中了十九人。
  这时一个叫毛遂的门客站了出来,向平原君说:“听说你要去楚国请救兵,我愿凑个数。”可平原君说:“你来我家三年了,没见你有什么本事,还是留下吧。”但是经过毛遂据理力争,平原君觉得有道理,又正缺一人,就勉强同意了。
  到了楚国,与楚王谈出兵助赵之事,谈了半天没有结果。这时毛遂按剑登台,对楚王说:“楚赵联合抗秦的利弊是明摆着的,为什么不早做决断?”楚王见毛遂这个地位低微的人竟敢在大庭广众之中指责自己,要让他滚下去。毛遂却从容不迫地对楚王说:“楚赵联合抗秦,并非只为赵国,也是为了你的楚国,以前秦军只率几万人马就攻下你的国都。”
  楚王听后频频点头,最后当场结盟订约。不久赵国在楚国和魏国的帮助下解了围。
  从此平原君对毛遂的才能十分佩服,大加重用。
  后用此典比喻自告奋勇,自我推荐担任某项重要任务。

春风虽好,却无法喊声应来。春雨虽精,却无法说到就到。春阳虽艳,却无法一想即到。春天虽美,却无法永久保存……

  Leave Room for a Change
  
  The son was too straightforward in what he said and never knew how to leave room for a change.About this, his father was worried.He decided to help his son."Remember to speak in another way round.Never be too straightforward and rigid." the father told him.
  Not knowing what his father meant, the boy blinked and kept silent.
  However, the father was patient.He tried to teach the dull boy again and again."For example," the father explained. "What did you say when the neighbor came to borrow things yesterday? You said " No, we haven"t." That won"t do.That"s too rigid.If anyone comes to borrow something next time, do not say "No, we haven"t", nor "Yes,we have. "Just say "Some of them are at home. Some are not." That"s a good way to speak. Can you remember?"
  The son seemed to understand.
  A few days later, a man came and called on them.
  "Is your father at home?" the man asked.
  The boy kept silent for a moment, thinking of what his father had taught him, and then replied calmly, "Some of them are at home. Some are not."
  
  儿子说话很直,从来不知道说话要留有余地。爸爸为此很担心,于是决定好好地教导教导儿子。他对儿子说:“以后说话一定要灵活些,千万不要把话说得太绝对。”
  儿子还不太明白其中的道理,只好眨巴着眼睛看着爸爸。
  不过,爸爸很有耐心,他不厌其烦地一遍遍开导这个迟钝的孩子。他对儿子解释说:“比如说吧,昨天邻居来借东西,你是怎么说的?你说:‘没有!’这可不行,话说得太绝对了。今后如果再遇到这类事情,不要直接说‘没有’,也不要说‘有’。就说‘有的在家,有的不在家’。这就把话说灵活了。记住了吗?”
  儿子似乎明白了。
  几天后,他家来了一位客人。
  “你爸爸在家吗?”客人问道。
  儿子默默地思考了一下爸爸对他的教导,然后非常镇静地回答说:“有的在家,有的不在家。”

  “噢,他们的确已经长大了,”布福金斯说着,看了看两个儿女。“他们现在几岁了?”
  “一个13岁,一个14岁,”布福金斯太太回答说。
  “我真该死!你们好,孩子们。”
  “他是谁?”布福金斯的儿子亨利问。
  “那是你的父亲,”布福金斯太太说。
  “很高兴见到你,”布福金斯的女儿玛丽面带羞涩地说。四周一片寂静,令人非常尴尬。
  “嗨,”布福金斯最后说,“我知道自己不配做一名父亲,但既然电视现在停了,我想补偿你们一下。”
  “怎么补偿?”亨利问。
  “噢,我们就聊聊天吧,”布福金斯说,“这是我们增进了解的最好方法。”
  “你想聊什么?”玛丽问。
  “呃,作为小学生,你们上的是哪所学校?”
  “我们都上林山高级中学了,”亨利说。
  “怎么?”布福金斯问,“你们都已经上中学了?”
  “你干什么工作?”玛丽问道。
  “我想你是汽车推销员吧,”布福金斯太太惊讶地说。
  “那是两年前的事了。我没有给你说过我已经换工作了吗?”布福金斯吃惊地说。
  “没有,你没有说过。两年了,你什么也没对我说过。”
  “对,我一直干得很好,”布福金斯说。
  “那我为什么要每天去百货商店上班呢?”布福金斯太太厉声说道。
  “噢,你还在百货商店上班?”布福金斯说,“早知道这样,去年我就会告诉你辞掉那份工作的。你应该对我说一下才是。”
  又是一片死寂。最后,亨利开口说道:“嘿,你想听我弹吉他吗?”
  “我真该死。你知道怎样弹吉他吗?喂,我不是有个会弹吉他的女儿吗?”
  “那是苏茜,”布福金斯太太说。
  “她在哪里?”
  “她一年前就出嫁了,就是在你坐在电视机前观看世界职业棒球锦标赛那天。”
