牛津版初一年级:Protecting our environment

青春短暂,时间不等人,有了好想法就要赶快行动!


LORAX is the environmental club at my school.

At a meeting, members discussed plans for the near future. One was to deal with batteries (电池) in a way healthier for the environment than simply throwing them away. Another was to set up bins (桶) for waste paper, so it could be recycled (回收). Another was to plant some flowers around the school campus.

The students have made change happen in small but effective (有效的) ways. They once asked the Illinois government (政府) to pass an environmental plan. The plan was adopted!

Our club, like many, tries to improve the environment.

Time waits for no man. When our schooling is over, youth will be gone. The right time to take action is early. I'm thinking of my English teacher's words:

"When you were young, didn't you expect to be a different person when you went into junior high?

"Then you got into junior high and found that you were the same person, only older.

"But then, high school? High school would be different. Now it isn't. And, take my word for it, college, getting married and old age aren't either. A child can change just like an adult. When will you begin to do what you want to do as an adult?

"Ask yourself, when CAN you begin? When can you think of yourself as a different person, the final person, ready and decided?

"Do as much as you can do now".
