Bufkins said,"Who are you?"
  "I"m your wife, Edith. "
  "Oh," Bufkins said,"then I suppose those kids in there are mine. "
  "That"s right," Mrs. Bufkins said. "If you ever got out of that armchair in front of the TV set, you"d know us. "
  "Boy, they"re really grown," Bufkins said, looking at his son and daughter. "How old are they now?"
  "Thirteen and fourteen," Mrs. Bufkins replied.
  "I"ll be darned. Hi, kids. "
  "Who"s he?" Bufkins"s son, Hey, asked.
  "It"s your father," Mrs. Bufkins said.
  "I"m pleased to meet you," Bufkins"s daughter, Mary, said shyly.There was an embarrassed silence all around.
  "Look," said Bufkins, finally,"I know I haven"t been much of a father, but now that the TV"s out, I"d like to make it up to you. "
  "How?" asked Hey.
  "Well, let"s just talk," Bufkins said , "That"s the best way to get acquainted."
  "What do you want to talk about?" Mary asked.
  "Well, for starters, what school do you go to?"
  "We go to Forest Hills High School, "Hey said.
  "What?"Bufkins asked. "Have you been to the high school?"
  "What do you do?" Mary asked.
  "I thought you were a car salesman," Mrs.Bufkins said in surprise.
  "That was two years ago.Didn"t I tell you I changed jobs?"Bufkins said in surprise.
  "No,you didn"t.You haven"t told me anything for two years.
  "Yup, I"m doing quite well, too,"Bufkins said.
  "Then why am I working in a department store?" Mrs. Bufkins demanded.
  "Oh, are you still working in department store? If Ihad known that,I would have told you could quit lastyear. You should have mentioned it,"Bufkins said.
  There was more dead silence.Finally Hey said, "Hey, you want to hear me play guitar?"
  "I"ll be darned.You know how to play the guitar?Say, didn"t I have a daughter who played the guitar?"
  "That was Susie , "Mrs.Bufkins said.
  "Where is she?"

  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.


  语文就在我们身边,她是温暖的阳光,洒遍了每个角落。
  大街上,人来人往,好热闹,如果你仔细观察,就会发现,这儿也有语文。看,那个卖装饰品的店,它的名字叫做“美丽新饰界”。我想,店主人起这个名字是为了让顾客们知道店里的装饰品不仅款式新而且很漂亮吧!“美丽新饰界”这个名字不仅有创意,而且让人一看就知道这店是卖什么的,两全其美,妙哉,妙哉。
  在家里,打开电视看《动物世界》,啊哈,电视里更是有语文。《动物世界》图文并茂,且有讲解,有趣易记,下次写关于动物的作文就不用绞尽脑汁地去想了。
  听着鸟语,仔细品味《诗文诵读》。《诗文诵读》里也有语文。“明月松间照,清泉石上流”的美景是语文;“春蚕到死丝方尽,蜡炬成灰泪始干”的奉献是语文;“衣带渐宽终不悔,为伊消得人憔悴”的执著是语文。
  戏曲里,语文的身影也出现了。听,那《孟姜女哭长城》中感人肺腑的话是语文;《红灯记》里一句句坚定不移的话是语文。
  在散文里,语文则是国色天香的牡丹,是月下宁静祥和的荷塘,是风雨飘摇中的红莲,是桨声灯影下的秦淮河,是蒙蒙胧胧的小橘灯,是钱塘江波澜壮阔的大潮,是三味书屋里朗朗的读书声……语文使人赏心悦目,陶然入醉。
  语文无处不在,只要你仔细观察,就会体验到生活的美好,语文的奥妙与神奇。语文离不开生活,生活不能没有语文。语文是生活的影子,让我们体验生活,感受语文的魅力吧!

  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。


  Before, very few foreigners visited the southern foot of Himalayas. Then, many Japanese went there. It is said that this is because of the honesty of a small boy. One day, some Japanese photographers asked a local boy to buy some bottles of beer, which took the boy three hours. The next day, the boy volunteered to buy for them. The photographer gave him a lot of money. But the boy did not return until the afternoon of the third day. So thephotographers began to talk about it and thought they were cheated by the boy. The third night, the boy knocked the door of the photographer. The boy told them that he bought four bottles of beer at one store, and then he climbed another mountain and crossed a river to buy the other six. On the way back, three bottles of them were broken, he cried and brought the broken pieces of bottles to the photographer and gave him the small changes. The people there were moved, which moved more people. Then more travelers came to the place.
  
  早年,喜马拉雅山南麓很少有外国人涉足。后来,许多日本人到这里观光旅游,据说,这是源于一位少年的诚信。一天,几位日本摄影师请当地一位少年代买啤酒,这位少年为之跑了3个多小时。第二天,那个少年又自告奋勇地再替他们买啤酒。这次摄影师们给了他很多钱,但直到第三天下午那个少年还没回来。于是,摄影师们议论纷纷,都认为那个少年把钱骗走了。第三天夜里,那个少年却敲开了摄影师的门。原来,他只购得4瓶啤酒,尔后,他又翻了一座山,趟过一条河才购得另外6瓶,返回时摔坏了3瓶。他哭着拿着碎玻璃片,向摄影师交回零钱,在场的人无不动容。这个故事使许多外国人深受感动。后来,到这儿的游客就越来越多……

  风吹树叶“沙沙”的声音令我陶醉,海浪拍打礁石“啪啪”的声音令我震惊,父亲无声的爱却让我刻骨铭心。
  沉重的双脚拖着我前行,被寒风冻得发紫的双手已毫无知觉。我左手握着一张成绩单,每走几步,总要停下来,用黯淡的目光无助地看着它。我的心不停地在想:为什么?我努力了这么久,吃了那么多苦,就为了这一次,可依旧没有回报。我该怎么面对父母?想到这里,我不禁想起母亲脸上的皱纹和父亲日渐消瘦的身体。
  尽管我一百个不愿意,但终究还是走到了家门口。把手伸进口袋拿钥匙,我冰冷的双手依旧不能感受到一丝的温暖。
  “咔”,门开了,我慢慢地走了进去,一眼看到爸爸正坐在桌前看报。听到开门声,他转过头,看到了我,脸上本是欣喜的表情顿时僵住了,立刻双眉紧皱,双手把报纸一扔,连拖鞋也没顾上穿,就朝我跑来。爸爸跑到我面前蹲下,用他那双温暖的大手抚着我的脸庞,眼神里透露出无限焦急和一点责备:“孩子,你这是怎么了?瞧你这双手冻的,怎么这么不注意!手套呢?”他一边说,一边拿起我的左手不停地搓着,还不时放在脸上,搓得暖和了又换另一只手接着搓。
  “爸,我有事跟你说”,我小心翼翼地说。爸爸站起来,拉着我坐到了电炉旁,十分关爱地说:“有再大的事也要爱护好身体才行啊,你先坐着,我给你泡杯奶茶。”不一会儿,爸爸端着奶茶走了过来,“来,快喝,暖着呢!”爸爸边说边把奶茶递到我手里。
  “我该怎么办呢”,事到如今,我不能再隐瞒了。“爸爸,我的考试成绩出来了,我考得不好。”说完,我惴惴不安地仰起脸望着爸爸。爸爸先是一愣,然后说了一句令我铭记一生的话:“孩子,没事儿,你记住了,你不可能永远成功,同样,也不可能永远失败,只要尽力了,你就是最棒的!”说完,爸爸将我搂在怀里,我的眼泪却再也止不住了。
  尽管“沙沙”声、“啪啪”声依旧在我耳边回响,但还是被寒风所覆盖。那始终不可磨灭的,是父亲无声的爱!原来那无声的爱是父亲对女儿内心的尊重,是唤醒女儿沉睡的自信,是小心地呵护着女儿那容易受伤的心灵。

张智霖资料:[恶魔天使(4)作文1500字]抖音恶魔天使教程视频


  从春到冬,母亲踮起脚尖迎接新的一天;从小到大,母亲踮起脚尖为我撑起一方爱的晴空。
  ——— 题记
  想起母亲,眼前便浮现出很多关于她的画面。每一个画面里,母亲的姿势都是踮起脚尖。
  她踮起脚尖卖力地踩着打谷机;她踮起脚尖把一筐筐的稻谷放进高高的谷仓里;她踮起脚尖摘下树上的桃子,挑到几里外的集市上卖;在集市的人堆里,她高声叫卖,那姿势仍是踮起脚尖……但给我印象最深刻的还是——
  
  一
  
  5岁那年秋天,四里外的赵村放电影。母亲说好要带我去看的,可等她把碗洗好,把猪草剁好,装到大荷叶锅里后,我们匆匆赶到赵村的时候,电影已经开始了。更重要的是:晒谷坪上早就聚集了很多人,连两旁堆起的草垛上也是人。我们挤不到前面去,站在后面根本看不见,我急得直嚷嚷。母亲迅速地把我架在脖子上,“哎,好!还差一点儿!看不完整。”母亲又调整了一下身体,这下我完全能看见了。当时,也没有去多想,只知去看并不太懂的电影。许多年后,我回忆起童年来,便明白了那晚我能看到电影的原因。母亲踮了一个晚上的脚尖,她也看了一个晚上别人的后背。
  
  二
  
  15岁那年,我中考。
  记得那天考完语文,我走出考场,一眼就看到了人群里的母亲。她正踮起脚尖,探出半个身子,向这边张望呢!我跑过去,轻声责备说:“妈,你怎么来了,咱家正在割麦子呢,忙都忙不过来!”母亲笑笑,从塑料袋里拿出两张鸡蛋饼,还有几个鸡蛋,塞给我说:“我送这个来给你吃,你最喜欢吃的了。天太热,没弄太多,怕坏,饿了吧,快吃!”
  我接过来,低头看见母亲头上还粘着几根小小的麦穗,一时不知说什么好,只是在心里暗下决心,一定要考好!
  
  三
  
  25岁那年冬天,我失恋了,我觉得我的整个世界都冻结了,都塌陷了。我一个人漫无目的地走在冷冷的风里,万念俱灰!不知什么时候,下起了冰雹,我不管;又不知过了多久,飘起了鹅毛般的雪花,我还是没管。后来,不知怎么的,走着走着,就回到了家。母亲见我回来,又惊又喜,连忙帮我拍去身上的雪花,“头上也有,别动,妈帮你弄下来!”母亲边说着,就又踮起脚尖,张开双臂,去弄我头上的雪。刹那间,我感到一种巨大的温暖弥漫全身,这一刻,我明白了:就算我失去了整个世界,我还拥有母亲,还有母亲暖暖的爱。我有什么理由不积极地生活呢?
  
  四
  
  我正准备午睡的时候,听到客厅里窸窸窣窣的声音,过来一看,是母亲,她正踮起脚尖,蹑手蹑脚的。“妈,什么事呀?”“呀,把你吵醒啦!”母亲像做错了事的孩子,“没事儿,我送点儿青菜过来!顺便看看你们有没有要洗的衣服!……哦,快去睡!快去!”我没能拗过母亲,她硬是把我儿子换下的脏衣服拿走了。
  这一年,我34岁,母亲57岁。她在我所在单位食堂里做临时工,一个月几百块钱的工作,她却比谁都看重,都珍惜。空余时间,还在食堂后面的空地上种了菜,时不时地来帮我做做家务……
  母亲拿着脏衣服的身影已经走远,灶台上,放着她刚从地里摘下的青菜,翠绿翠绿的,还闪着光。
  往事一幕一幕,那踮起脚尖的身影在我泪光闪烁的眼前交错浮现,告诉我许多,也教会我许多,还提醒我许多。
  点评:
  “踮起脚尖”,是一个简单的动作,也是一个形象的比喻,虚实意义兼备,蕴涵颇为丰厚。本文以小小说的形式演绎题目,通过对“踮起脚尖”这一微小动作的刻画,凸显“母爱深深”的主旨,抒发“我”无尽感恩的衷肠,小事大义,别出心裁,乡气浓郁,笔墨灵动。不过它的最大特色还在于“年岁记事”技法的成功运用。开篇总起,亮出文眼,“母亲踮起脚尖为我撑起一方爱的晴空”,并以大量的排比、反复句极力渲染这一动作,挈领起下文对“我”的四个人生节点的叙述。中间分写,围绕文眼以时间为经,以细节为纬,从“我”的视角,多时段、多侧面地展现一幅幅“别开生面”的慈母爱子图画,浓情挥洒,感人肺腑,笔法变幻,多彩多姿,鲜活生动,美不胜收,逐层推进,井然有序。结尾总束,画龙点睛,重扣人物动作,揭示深刻意蕴,照应前文内容,加深读者印象。如此谋篇布局,使得文章增色不少,令人读罢,别是一番“乡愁”在心头。

  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。”

  Angels in Indiana
  
  In September 1960, I woke up one morning with six hungry babies and just 75 cents in my pocket. Their father was gone. The boys ranged from three months to seven years; their sister was two.
  I scrubbed1 the kids until they looked brand new and then put on my best homemade dress. I loaded them into the rusty2 old car and drove off to find a job. The seven of us went to every factory, store and restaurant in our small town. No luck.
  The last place we went to, just a few miles out of town, called the Big Wheel. An old lady named Granny owned the place and she peeked3 out of the window from time to time at all those kids. She needed someone on the graveyard4 shift, 11 at night until seven in the morning. She paid 65 cents an hour and I could start that night.
  On Christmas Eve, the usual customers were drinking coffee in the Big Wheel. It was still dark and I couldn"t see much, but there appeared to be some dark shadows in the car -- or was that just a trick of the night? Something certainly looked different, but it was hard to tell what. When I reached the car I peered warily5 into one of the side windows. Then my jaw dropped in amazement. My old battered6 car was full to the top with boxes of all shapes and sizes. I quickly opened the driver"s side door, scrambled inside and kneeled in the front facing the back seat. Reaching back, I pulled off the lid of the top box. Inside was a whole case of little blue jeans, sizes 2-10! I looked inside another box: It was full of shirts to go with the jeans. Then I peeked inside some of the other boxes: There were candy and nuts and bananas and bags of groceries. There was an enormous ham for baking, and canned vegetables and potatoes. There was pudding and cookies, pie filling and flour. There was a whole bag of laundry supplies and cleaning items. And there were five toy trucks and one beautiful little doll.
  As I drove back through empty streets as the sun slowly rose on the most amazing Christmas Day of my life, I was sobbing with gratitude. And I will never forget the joy on the faces of my little ones that precious morning.
  Yes, there were angels in Indiana that long-ago December.
  
  1960年9月的一个早晨,我醒来,身边是6个饥饿的孩子,口袋里只有75美分。孩子们的父亲已经离开了。男孩子们年龄在3个月到7岁之间,他们的妹妹只有2岁。
  我把孩子们擦洗干净,他们看起来干干净净。然后,我穿上最好的自己缝制的衣服。我把他们放在生锈的旧汽车里,去找工作。我们7个人走遍了我们小镇的每一个工厂、商店、餐厅,一无所获。
  最后,我们来到离镇里几英里的叫做“大车轮”的地方。这个地方由一个老奶奶所有。她不时地从窗户里看着这些孩子们。她需要有人值夜班,晚上11点到第二天7点。每小时付65美分,我当天晚上就可以上班。
  圣诞节前夜,通常顾客们在这儿喝咖啡。天黑,看不清什么。在车里,有几个黑影在走动。难道晚上有恶作剧吗?感觉有点异样,但是说不清是什么。我向车走去,看了一眼车的侧窗。我目瞪口呆。我的破车里放满了各种形状和大小的盒子。我很快打开驾驶员的侧门,爬进车里,面向车的后座跪了下来。打开最上面的一个盒子,里面装着一盒子蓝色小牛仔裤,号码从2到10都有。另一个盒子里,装满了与牛仔裤配套的衬衫。其他盒子里有糖果、坚果、香蕉和其他日用品袋。有一个巨大的火腿,罐装的蔬菜和土豆。有布丁、饼干、馅饼和面粉,一大袋洗涤和清洁用品。有5个玩具汽车和—个漂亮的小洋娃娃。
  当我开车回家时,太阳正慢慢升起,我最有意义的圣诞节开始了。我充满感激,热泪盈眶。我永远也忘不了圣诞节的早晨我孩子们脸上的幸福表情。
  确实,在那个逝去的12月里,印第安那出现了天使。

张智霖资料:【一只会玩QQ的狗狗(二)作文800字】 QQ狗狗头像


  西山改名“金庭”,为的是财源广进;思茅易名“普洱”,为的是以茶富市;改名之风刮起时,大学们、里弄们“闻风而动”,纷纷为自己饰以更为国际化、更为响亮的名字。且抛开“经济利益”四字不论,频繁更名的背后,我们看到,在经济全球化的今天,对于我们的传统,我们似乎显得越来越底气不足,而我们一直引以为傲的文化印迹,也似乎正随之逐渐淡出我们的视野。
  走在街上,撞入眼帘的巨型广告上,竟都是诸如“东方曼哈顿”,“城市威尼斯”等鼎鼎“洋”名;“必胜客”,“星巴克”成了人们聚会的首选,寻常巷陌中的纳凉与闲聊已默默让位。我们中国成功举办了奥运会,修建了绵延千里的青藏铁路,为世界各地提供着生活必需的“中国制造”,然而为何有时我们仍显得像是被推搡进喧闹大观园的刘姥姥,羡慕的目光背后是自信的缺乏。我们消费着外来的制度、思想乃至意识形态,殊不知,当我们因盲目模仿与追风而丧失了传统,我们的发展与进步的潮流,便会像无源之水,“其涸也,可立而待也”。
  纵观历史,历史上没有一个大国的崛起是可以离开文化的衣钵的。诸如美、英等国,在经济迅速发展的同时,他们无不向世界注入了新的制度与意识形态。“文化搭台,经济唱戏”,若没有了文化与传统构建的平台,这戏怕是真成了“空城”吧。因此,重拾自信、回归传统似乎应是在发展经济的同时,同样值得关注的命题。
  重拾自信,并不仅仅意味着对自我价值的重新发掘与关照,更包括坦然地承认:在社会形态的转型期,哪些林林总总的生动表情本身是具有意义的,哪些曲曲折折踩下的脚印本身是具有价值的。拥有了这份坦然,我们才更容易处在一个“体外”的立场,客观地评价我们的发展,理性地处理是否“拿来”的问题,因而不至于由于自我价值的迷失而丧失自信。
  传统的回归,需要结合民间的力量。离开民间滋养的文化绝不可能是“活”的文化、有生命力的文化;远离民心的传统更是随时有丧失的可能。从《百家讲坛》的兴起到传统节假日的重提,人们在奔小康、追求精神生活的时候,有机遇、有能力也有心境与传统重新邂逅、深入交流。人们正逐渐意识到:一个丧失传统的民族,就如同无根之木、流水浮萍,失去了养料的供给,何谈常绿常青?
  是的,我们更改着那些看似突起的名字,我们搬进了“城市威尼斯”,我们消费着“必胜客”,但我们仍流淌着华夏民族的血液,我们仍感受着自己的感受、悲伤着自己的悲伤。我们的内心应该有些东西是一成不变的。我总相信,外面的世界越是“乱花渐欲迷人眼”,我们的灵魂就越应该有一份“过尽千帆皆不是”的坚守与执著。
  而我们自信的重拾所依赖的正是这份执著,我们传统的回归所需要的正是这份定力,我们文化的集成与发扬所呼唤的正是这份坚守。忽地想起陈寅恪那在战火中著书的坚实背影,真希望这个时代能够多一些像他那样抱一守中的灵魂。

  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。
