Sometimes I feel good about myself when I’ve been able to contribute a little bit to my
relationships with others. I remember what I did for Xiao Li, my next -door neighbor and good friend. Last summer Xiao Li got seriously ill and was in the hospital for 5 weeks.
At the beginning I didn’t know what I could do for him. I went to Mom for advice. Mom
thought about it for a while and said,” well, the only thing I can tell you is to be available when he wants you to be available—not when you want to be available .” I took Mom’s advice seriously. I
thought, “ How am I going to be available to him? I love traveling. And have planned to travel in the summer.”
I decided I would call him on the phone every day when I was traveling and I’d go and see
him in the hospital and do what I could for him when I was back home. So when Xiao Li recovered and left the hospital I felt so happy.
When Your Neighbor Is in Need of Help
A young woman was walking along the streets of a middle-class neighborhood in New York at 3:00 am, when she was attacked. She screamed for help and managed to escape. A few minutes later her attackers caught her again and she continued screaming for half an hour while 38 neighbors watched terrified from their windows and did nothing. They didn’t even call the police.
Kitty died of multiple stab wounds(多处刺伤)。
I think there are several reasons for that. First, those people were rather cowardly and selfish. When they heard someone screaming late at night, they thought that was dangerous so they just stood back and watched someone get killed in front of them. They preferred to protect themselves rather than get involved and risk being injured or even killed. Second, they felt that there are already institutions in cities to deal with this kind of problem. They didn’t think they needed to
intervene because the police would do something for them. Finally, it is possible that those people were so terrified that they could not think clearly or take action to protect the woman. 2) Sample
I don’t know. Maybe I would rush to the street and try to protect the woman. I think more people would come to help when they realized what was really happening. Maybe I would call the police. But I’m afraid that when the police arrived, she might already have been killed. Or maybe I would be too scared to give any help. I might simply close the window and put my ear plugs in. these are the different things I might do on such an occasion, but I believe it’s most likely that I would call
When you need help, you should not hesitate to ask for it. There are two reasons for you to do so. First, sometimes in our lives we all have pain and sorrow, so we all need somebody to lean on. For example, when we are angry, we need someone who is willing to listen to our complaints and to comfort us. Sometimes it is very likely that the one whom you have asked for help may need your help some day in the future. By helping each other, we become friends. The other reason is that on one can help you if you are too proud to let others know what you want. So next time if you have trouble, if you need somebody to lean on, don’t hesitate to ask for help. When one day somebody
else needs your help, lend him a hand or let him lean on you.
