面对那些求助的人(中考阅读) - 称子英语 - 孙广趁教育教学工作室

I was driving around downtown one afternoon in the winter making a few deliveries. I was listening to a band, rocking out, cruising around, and minding my own business...

I came up to a red light and stopped... waited. As I looked over to my left, I saw a young guy standing there. He was a little scruffy (邋遢的), pale in the face, holding a cardboard sign with some writing on it.

As with most major cities, when you’re in the heart of downtown, it’s pretty common to have homeless people on every other corner, holding a cardboard sign with something written on them — asking for money. I suppose after so many years, one can easily become desensitized (麻木的) to this sort of thing. In general, you see the person, read the sign if it’s short enough, and make a decision that you don’t want to go through the trouble of giving them money, or you tell yourself that they don’t look like they’re in dire (迫切的) need of money, or some other decision or thought goes through your mind. There are hundreds of thoughts and excuses out there... and we’ve all come up with them before.

I looked at this gentleman, skimmed over the sign, but this time, I stopped. My mind went blank from all the hustle of the day, and work, and how I had to hurry, and where I had to go next, and what I was doing that night, and how much money I needed to come up with and so on... The world stopped for a brief moment. I can’t remember what the sign said exactly but it was something like: “Need money / food, have stomach cancer, homeless, anything helps. God bless.”

I didn’t know why, but for some reason that particular sign struck me. The light turned green, traffic moved forward, and I went with it. About a block or two away, my heart had simply sunk for this guy. I knew I probably couldn’t really help him, but I had to see if nothing else, maybe I could buy him lunch. So I decided to go back, ask him if I could buy him lunch, talk to him and listen to his story.

It took me about five minutes to get looped around and back on to the same street where I had seen him. It was just five minutes — but he was gone.

Thinking:

1. Why did the author drive back to find the young man?

2. 作者通过这个故事想告诉我们点什么?
