    Dear friends, I'm realy shocked and moved with your warm response to my previous podcasts. It greatly encourages me. The only reward that I can give you is to post more and better works. All my works are original, created based on my observation of real life, and some of them are on my own life experience. I think we all long for a happy life filled with true love, true hapiness and sorrow, true feelings.

    人人都知道“人生苦短”,但是有多少人真正意识到生命是多么短暂呢?我来讲一个真实的故事。

    大约4年前,我有一个初一女生,姓周。她圆圆的脸,笑容可掬,言语不多。有些学生,尤其是男生,经常迟到,可她从不如此。上课时,她总是聚精会神,一丝不苟地做笔记。说实话,她算不上聪明,甚至可以说有些笨。跟我学习后的一段时间里进步并不明显。但是她从来没有丝毫放弃的念头。我不知道她是否知道“笨鸟先飞”的成语,但她绝对是践行这个理念的楷模。工夫不负有心人,她的努力终于得到了回报。一年后,她在考试中第一次取得了90分,我永远不会忘记她灿烂的笑容,是我见过的最美丽的笑容。从此后她的成绩一直保持在90分以上,直到悲剧的发生。

    她总是星期天来我家上课的。为了容纳人数众多的学生,我在我家的大阳台上造了一个小教室,可以容纳7个学生。她的座位在后排,挨着窗口。某个星期五,两天后她就要来上下次课。我接到一个电话,是个年轻女子的声音:“很抱歉,周xx下节课来不了了。”“没问题。”我平静地回答,心想她一定是病了。学生请病假是常事,虽然她几乎没有请过假。那个女子接着说:“她很喜欢上你的课,但她今后来不了了。”我有些吃惊,但仍然很平静,因为我以为她也要和别的学生那样不学了。我心想这太可惜了,因为她是我的课的最大受益者。

    “她…”, “她…” 那女子(后来告诉我她是周的表姐)支支吾吾,声音有些颤抖。我觉得有些不对劲,于是问:“发生什么事了?”“她死了。”“什么?”怎么可以开这样的玩笑,我差点这样说出来。谁能相信,一个欢蹦乱跳的年轻人,没病没殃的会说死就死。“这是真的,她昨天晚上死的。”震惊、诧异的我几乎眼泪夺眶而出。她的表姐要求我不要问她的死因,也不要打电话去慰问她的父母,因为他们已经悲痛欲绝,无法承受任何额外的精神负担了。我答应了,并且至今信守诺言,没有去打扰这个不幸的家庭。

    后来,听和周同住一栋楼的学生说,她的死因有两种版本:一说是心脏病突发,另一说是晚上从床上摔下来,脑部受创。

    她的死因并不重要,重要的是我们要真正明白:生命是须臾之间的事,我们任何人都可能随时失去它,所以,我们要真心地,心怀感激地珍惜生命。享受生命的每分每秒,这样我们才能每分每秒都幸福快乐。

    Everybody knows life is short. But how many of us have a good idea how short it may be? Let me tell you a true story about a teenager girl.

    About four years ago, I had a 14-year-old girl pupil surnamed Zhou. She was a shy girl of few words with a chubby, smiling face. Unlike some of other pupils, particularly boys, who would be late for classes, she was never late for a single lecture. In class, she was all ears, taking notes in her tidy writing. Frankly, she was not bright, if not a little bit slow. For a while after she came to learn English from me, she made little progress. But she never showed even slightest sign of giving up. I didn't have any idea if she knew about the proverb of Early Birds Catching Worms, but she was definitely an excellent role model in carrying out such an idea. In the end, her efforts paid off! One year after taking my tutoring, she got her first 90 points in a test. I will never forget her grin, one of the biggest and most beaming ones that I have even seen! Afterwards, she had a streak of great marks until the tragedy happened.

    She would come to my house for class on Sundays. To accommodate a fairly large number of pupils, I had a small classroom built on the balcony of my apartment which sits 7 pupils. Her seat was in the back row, right by the window. It was a Friday afternoon, two days before her next class. I got a phone call. A female voice was on the other end:"I'm sorry but Zhou can't come to the next class." "Fine," I responded calmly, figuring that she might be ill. Pupils asked for sick leave regularly, though it was rare for her. The caller added, "I'm afraid she can never attend your class again, though she loved to." Surprised as I was, I remained calm, for I thought she would quit the course as some other pupils did. "It will be a shame for her," I thought to myself, knowing she was one of the best beneficiaries of my tutoring.
    "She, she..." the caller, who later told me she was Zhou's cousin, stammered with a shaking voice. Sensing something wrong, I asked, "What happened?" "She has died." "What?" How could she make such a silly joke? It was my first reaction. Who would believe that a girl of youth and energy should die without a sick. "It's true. She died last night." Shocked and puzzled, I almost burst into cry. Zhou's cousin then begged me not to further ask for the cause of her death and not to call her parents to send condolence as they had already been too heart-broken to handle any extra emotional burden. I promised and have kept my promise to this day.
    Later on, words from another pupil who was her next door neighbor came with confused versions. One is that she fell of the bed during the night and died of severe brain injury and the other is that she died of a heart attack.
    What caused her death is not important. What matters is the valuable lesson we should learn from her death: Life is so short that any of us may lose it any minute, so we must care for it with our whole-hearted gratitude and appreciation. Enjoy every minute, every second of your life, and you will be happy every minute and every second.
