There is so much I have not been, so much I have not seen.
I have not thought and have not done or felt enough-the early sun, rain and the seasonal delight of flocks of ducks and geese in flight, the mysteries of late-at-night. I still need time to read a book, write poems, paint a picture, look at scenes and faces dear to me. There is something more to be of value-something I should find within myself-as peace of mind, patience, grace and being kind. I shall take and I shall give, while yet, there is so much to live for-rainbows, stars that gleam, the fields, the hills, the hope, the dream the truth that one must seek.
I"ll stay here-treasure every day and love the world in my own way!
Nowadays, the biggest problem in our world is the environment is broken. The environment around us gets worse and worse, and the environment pollution is becoming more and more serious all over the world. Many lakes and rivers are seriously polluted and much water is polluted by factories.
Many trees are cut down, and the animals don’t have home to go. The earth is our home and it is our duty to take care of it for ourselves and our future generations. Good environment can make people feel happy and fit. And the bad environment will bring illness to people. To protect the environment means to improve our life. As a middle school student, we must do our bit towards protecting the environment. It is our duty to do that. But what can we do for our Mother Earth?
In my opinion, I think protecting the environment should from ourselves. We shouldn’t throw the rubbish everywhere. And we should also tell others not to do that. We should put the trash into their own houses—trash bins. Whenever and wherever we see litter on the ground, we should pick it up and throw it into trash bins. Never spit in public. And don’t draw on public walls. As we know, water is the limited resources, and it is very important for human beings, we can’t live without water. But some people don’t care about it, and many cities need water now. So we shouldn’t waste the water.
How to save the water? I have some my own idea. First, we can use some water which we have used again. For example, we can use the water we wash rice to water the flowers. Second, we should turn off the tap when we leave. We should try to protect the water resource. To protect trees, we can go to plan as many trees as we can. We can use cloth bag instead of plastic bag while we are shopping.
And I think we should tell others to protect environment, too. We should stop the people who throw the trash on the ground, and tell them it’s wrong to do this. We can also write to the boss of factories which discharge the pollutant. We can call our friends to plant more flowers and trees together. We should let people realize the seriousness of the environment pollution.
Days ago, in a biology class, our teacher told us something about the gene project and some experiments done on the animals. He was talking about it in a proud tone, but I felt really upset when I heard that. I think it unfair to treat the animals like this.
Yes, nowadays, we do often hear about new discoveries brought by this kind of experiments. But when we humans are proud of how clever and great we are, does anyone of us think how miserable it is for those animals that sacrifice in the experiments? We inject viruses and bacteria into their bodies to observe their reaction, in this way, we can know more about the illnesses that we can’t cure at present and we may get rid of them in the future. But since we ourselves don’t want to suffer from them, why do we torture the animals? We are all creatures on the same planet, and we are equal. Human beings, although being the most intelligent, have no right to treat the others like this. I have to admit that we do benefit a lot from those experiments and I know it’s unreasonable to stop the advancing of science and technology. But I hope we can find a balance point between the two.
Nothing can I change, but wonder whether we all lives share the same rights; nothing can I change, but wonder whether science should control everything; nothing can I change, but wonder whether the perfection of technology can achieve the perfection of humanity; nothing can I do, but appeal: Please respect all the creatures, because we are all connected in the great circle of life!
Today the Five-Star Red Flag is flown at half-mast and the whole nation mourns for quake victims.
From Wenchuan to Yushu earthquake, the consensus that life must be respected has been reached by the nation. A national day of mourning held in the name of the whole country not only shows the respect for life, but also manifests the toughness and turns grief into strength.
Rescue efforts are still going on in Yushu. Love envelops the quake zone. From mushroomed relief tents to childrens voices resounding through classrooms in the mobile panel house; from the continuous flow of aid to the pledge of “new campuses and new homes,” all of these displays the national responsibility and strength, which just stem from citizens’ supreme respect for the value of civilian lives.
No awe of life, no respect for human beings; no mourning for the deceased, no appreciation of life. Giving first priority to ordinary people’s lives and dignity is not only a rational return to the value of life, but also the application of governments "people oriented" policy.
Now we hope that the national attitude to respect people and their lives could really evolve into an institutional public action. We cannot escape from bigger disasters in the future, but the dignity of life and the progress of human beings could be refined into a civilized institution.
Lets mourn today and remain tough tomorrow.
In recent years, the news about saving others lives at the cost of ones own are frequently reported. Some people praise the people who save others, becuase its traditional virtue in China to help those who are in need. However, some other people argue that its not worth to save others lives at the cost of ones own and it should not be encouraged.
As far as I am concerned, the spirit of self-sacrifice is worthy for us to learn, but we should find amore appropriate way to avoid accident as well.
First, every life is precious and respected. Whenever somebody is in danger, we will certainly give them a hand to rescue the lifeif we could. Its our nature. However, its unwise to take action without any considerations. For instance,somebody is drowning, if you are good at swimming, you could jump into the water to save the life; but if you cant swim, the best way for you is not jump into the water but shout loudly and ask others for help.
Secondly, some extra accidents can be avoided if we think carefully. There are too many stories about young and promising people sacrifice their own lives to save other but lost their own lives. Its quite debated about these cases. They all have their persuasive reasons and its difficult for us to tell right or wrong between them.
In conclusion, we should study the noble spirit and action of those who sacrifice themselves to save lives. However, we should also try our best to find the best way to rescue others at the lowest cost. Anyway, all lives are precious, unique and respected and we dont want to see anybody lose their lives.
