My professor gave us an assignment (任务)that is going to take at least twenty hours to complete—community (社区)service.
We are all part of a community. The quality of a community is largely dependent on how citizens treat each other,So go out into your communities and do a service in a way that you don’t get paid. You might be surprised what can happen in those twenty hours,” said the professor.
After doing some research, I found an after-school tutoring(辅导)program for a fourth-grade boy named Steven. He was small for his age,wore glasses and was a Harry Potter fan. He was a little on the quiet side for the first few weeks,but it was obvious that he was a very bright boy. He didn't need a tutor as much as he needed a friend. It seemed that his classmates mostly ignored him.
When I started, I only planned to complete the required hours for my assignment. But when the hours were done,I liked Steven. And I could tell that he had already grown attached(依恋)to me.
As the end of the school year came, Steven said, “I don't want the school year to end. Because when the school year is over, I won't see you anymore. ”
I had signed an agreement stating that at the end of the school year I wouldn't have a relationship with the child I tutored. I'm going to miss you, too, Steven, but I promise I will never, ever forget you. ”
It took me some time to get used to not heading over to that old elementary school and seeing that sweet,smiling boy waiting for me. But then I realized I had my own siblings (兄弟姐妹).I had been so busy being an adult that I really didn't pay any attention to them at all,It was time to change that.
