One Saturday, we were preparing to go away for the weekend when my daughter heard cries for help. When I went out, I discovered our elderly neighbor had fallen on her front steps. She was clearly in pain, so I helped her inside her house and settled here on the bed.
I noticed her room was very narrow and dark. It was obvious she hadn't cleaned it for a long time. She insisted she didn't need an ambulance（救护车）and that someone would be around soon, so I left her with a bottle of water at her side.
As I left I felt sad when I realized that we hadn't communicated with her, except a few smiles, for the past 18 months. She didn't know my name and I didn't know hers, and I hadn't even noticed that she hadn't been outside for weeks because of bad pain in her back.
That weekend I visited my grandmother for her 80th birthday and noticed how clean and spacious her flat seemed in comparison to my neighbour's. My neighbour, as far as I knew, had no family regularly dropping by.
When I returned home I went to visit her. Very grateful to see me, she explained she was okay. Yet, unable to bend down due to her back, her kitchen was filling with garbage that she was unable to take out by herself.
We've become good friends and chat every second day. She keeps thanking me for my kindness, but I enjoy helping her. Now, every time I return from putting out her garbage, collecting her mail or just chatting, I feel a deep sense of satisfaction and peace.

I am Wilson. My sister and I spent our summer holidays with our uncle this year. He is a
geologist (地质学家) and loves to collect stones.
One day, he bought us two backpacks and asked us to go to the mountain with him. We walked the whole day. Every now and then he put stones in our backpacks. To our surprise, he also took some stones out from them. But we thought he had just found better stones.
When we returned to the house, we were very tired. The backpacks were so heavy that we felt great relief (轻松) when we took them off. Yet our uncle's backpack was half empty.
“Why did you give us so many stones?” we asked.
“I didn't. You did,” he said. “You didn't know it, but I gave you a little attitude test today. I listened to every word you said. Whenever you were complaining, I added a stone to your backpacks. Whenever you talked about something with positive thinking, I took out a stone. And now look at your backpacks.”
Our backpacks were full of stones.
“Your negative thoughts are just like stones. You carry them in your mind just like those stones in your backpacks. The more negative thoughts yo u have, the heavier your mind will be,” said our uncle.

One night, when I was eight, my mother gently asked me a question I would never forget. "Sweetie, my company wants to promote(升职) me but needs me to work in Brazil. This is like your teacher telling you that you've done well and allowing you to skip(跳) a grade, but you'll have to leave your friends. Would you say yes to your teacher?" She gave me a hug and asked me to think about it. I was lost in thought. The question kept me wondering for the rest of the night. I had said "Yes" but for the first time, I realized the difficult decisions adults had to make.
For almost four years, my mother would call us from Brazil every day. Every evening I'd eagerly wait for the phone to ring and then tell her everything that happened during the day. A phone call, however, could never take her place and it was difficult not to feel lonely at times.
During my fourth-grade Christmas break, we flew to Rio to visit her. Looking at her large empty apartment. It was then I started to understand the difficult choices she had to make. She needed to think about both family and work. Faced with difficult decisions, she used to tell me, you wouldn't know whether you made the right choice, but you could always make the best out of the situation, with a positive attitude.
Back home, I reminded myself that what my mother could do, I could, too. If she managed to live in Rio all by herself, I, too, could learn to be independent. I learn how to take care of myself and set high but achievable goals.
My mother is now back with us. But I will never forget what the experience has really taught me. I've learned a lot because of this separation(分离). There are lots of difficult decisions that we have to face in our life. We need to have a positive attitude no matter what happens.

How many of us have reached into our drawer(抽屉)and pulled out socks that didn't match? Will you throw them away like most girls or try to reuse them? The story of Carly and Charley may help you.
Carly and Charley are the girls who often lose their socks. At first, they just matched different colors or styles like some other girls. But most of the time, these socks couldn't match their clothes. So they came up with an idea and started Odd Sox: they collected these socks and gave them away to homeless people. But the problem wasn't solved. They still had missing socks until they realized that they could make a business out of it. So they set up Single Sox: he girls sell socks in packs(包)of three so you can mix and match as you wish. Each pack is super colorful and super inspiring(激励人心的)—Carly and Charley have written words on every sock to encourage girls to celebrate their differences.
And they carry on the tradition of giving back—for every pair of socks sold, they give away a pair to those in need. Nothing is a waste if you have a creative mind.

I am Turere. I come from Kitengela, a farming community on the edge(边缘) of Nairobi National Park of Kenya(肯尼亚). Since the age of nine. I have helped to look after my family's cows. As a child, in my free time. I enjoyed playing with electronics. I made my own inventions, such as electronic toys from car parts and other things. I also built other electronic devices(仪器) for my neighbors.
At the age of 13, I invented something that changed my life. It also changed the lives of many people in my community. One night, a lion from the park came into my family's farm and killed one of our cows. I was angry. However, killing the lion, I thought, was not the best way to solve the problem. Instead, I decided to invent a solution
The first idea I got was to use fire, because I thought lions were scared of fire. But I came to realize that didn't really help, because it was even helping the lions to see through the cowshed (牛棚). So I didn't give up. I continued.
And a second idea I got was to use a scarecrow(稻草人). I was trying to trick the lions into
