Broken Wings, Flying Heart

本文属阅读资料
He lost his arms in an accident that claimed his father's life—who was the main source of support for the family. Since then, he has had to depend on the arms of his younger brother. For the sake of taking care of him, his younger brother BECame his shadow, never leaving him alone for years. Except for writing with his toes, he was completely unable to do anything in his life.

One late night, he suffered from diarrhea1 and had to wake up his younger brother. His younger brother accompanied him into the toilet and then went back the dorm to wait. But being so tired, his younger brother fell asleep, leaving him on the toilet for two hours till the teacher on duty discovered him. As the two brothers GREw up together, they had their share of problems and they would often quarrel. Then one day, his younger brother wanted to live separate from him, living his own life, as many normal people do. So he was heart-broken and didn't know what to do.

A similar misfortune befell a girl, too. One night her mother, who suffered from chronic2 mental illness disappeared. So her father went out looking for her mother, leaving her alone at home. She tried to prepare meals for her parents, only to overturn the kerosene3 light on the stove, resulting in a fire which took her hands away.

Though her elder sister who was studying in another city, showed her willingness to take care of her, she was determined to be completely independent. At school, she always studied hard. Most of all she learned to be self-reliant. Once she wrote the following in her composition: "I am lucky. Though I lost my arms, I still have legs; I am lucky. Though my wings are broken, my heart can still fly."

One day, the boy and the girl were both invited to appear on a television interview program. The boy told the TV host about his uncertain future at being left on his own, whereas the girl was full of enthusiasm for her life. They both were asked to write something on a piece of paper with their toes. The boy wrote: My younger brother's arms are my arms;while the girl wrote: Broken wings, flying heart.

They had both endured the same ordeal4, but their different attitudes determined the nature of their lives. It is true that life is unpredictable5. Disasters can strike at any time. How you handle misfortune when confronted with it, is the true test of your character. If you choose only to complain and escape from the ordeal, it will always follow you wherever you go. But if you decide to be strong, the hardship will turn out to be a fortune on which new hopes will arise.

一场车祸,夺去了他的双臂,也夺去了他父亲的生命,而父亲原是这个家庭主要的经济来源。从此,他不得不开始依靠弟弟稚嫩的双臂。为了照顾他,弟弟成了他的影子,几年来寸步不离他的左右。而他自己除了能用脚趾写字,其他的生活琐事完全不能自理。

某天深夜里,他腹泻得厉害,不得不叫醒他的弟弟。他的弟弟陪他进厕所后,回到了宿舍去等他。但是,因为太累,他的弟弟一下睡着了,把他一个人留在厕所呆了两个小时,直到值班老师发现他。两兄弟从小一起长大,一起承担着所有的问题,也就会经常吵架。后来有一天,他弟弟想离开他,像许多正常人一样过自己的生活。他心都碎了,更不知道接下去该怎么办。

同样的不幸也发生了一位女孩身上。有一天夜里,她患有慢性精神病的母亲失踪了,于是他的父亲出去找他母亲,把她一个人留在了家里。她试着为父母准备饭菜,却把煤油灯打翻在了炉子上,引发火灾,夺去了她的双手。

虽然她在另一个城市读书的姐姐,表示愿意照顾她,她却决定要完完全全靠自己。在学校里,她一直很努力地学习。最重要的是,她学会了自力更生。一次她在作文中这么写道:“我是幸运的,虽然失去了双臂,但我仍然还有腿;我是幸运的,虽然折断了翅膀,但我的心依旧飞翔。”

有一天,男孩和女孩都应邀出现在一次电视采访节目中。男孩对电视节目主持人谈起留给他的未来不禁感慨前途渺茫,而女孩,却对她未来的生活充满了热情。他们都被要求用脚趾在纸上写下点什么。男孩写下的是:弟弟的双手就是我的双手;而女孩写下的:断了翅膀,但我心依旧飞翔。

他们都经历了同样的磨难,但不同的态度决定了他们不同的生活状态。生活是不可预测的,这是事实。灾害可能会在任何时候降临。而面对它时,你将如何处理,则是对你品格的真正考验。如果你只是一味选择抱怨和逃避磨难,那么不管你走到了哪里,它会永远跟着你。但是,如果你决定要坚强,那么艰苦将成为一种财富,为你带来新的希望。
