整个世界因你而改变 美文网

Every Sunday morning I take a light jog around a park near my home. Theres a lake located in one corner of the park. Each time I jog by this lake, I see the same elderly woman sitting at the waters edge with a small metal cage sitting beside her.

She smiled. Im cleaning off their shells , she replied. verywen.com

我在清洗他们的壳,她笑着回答说。 www.verywen.com

Anything on a turtles shell, like algae or scum, reduces the turtles ability to absorb heat and impedes its ability to swim. It can also corrode and weaken the shell over time.

任何乌龟壳上,像海藻、泡沫浮渣这些东西,都会减弱乌龟的吸热能力并且阻碍他们游动,时间长了还会腐蚀龟壳,让龟壳变得脆弱。

She went on: I spend a couple of hours each Sunday morning, relaxing by this lake and helping these little guys out. Its my own strange way of making a difference. www.verywen.com

她继续说道:每个星期天早晨我都会花几个小时待在湖边,边放松自己,边帮这些小家伙摆脱困难。这就是我奇怪的制造改变的方式。 美文网

But dont most freshwater turtles live their whole lives with algae and scum hanging from their shells? I asked.

但是,难道不是所有的淡水乌龟都是伴随着它们壳上的海藻和泡沫、浮渣度过一生的吗?我问道。 copyright verywen.com

Yep, sadly, they do, she replied.

遗憾的是,它们的确这样。她回答道。 verywen.com

Well then, dont you think your time could be better spent? And 99% of these turtles dont have kind people like you to help them clean off their shells. So, no offense but how exactly are your localized efforts here truly making a difference? www.verywen.com

那么,你不觉得你在浪费时间吗?99%的乌龟都没有遇到像你这么好的人去帮他们清洗龟壳。所以,无意冒犯但是你在这儿,通过你一个人的努力到底能带来多大改变呢? 美文网

The woman giggled aloud. 内容来自美文网
