  My 14-year-old brother John dreamed of having a black woolen coat, for at that time this kind of coat was 31 with teenagers, but it could cost several hundred dollars. One day my brother and I went into a shop and saw a black woolen coat at the same time. The coat felt very soft, and it cost only $28. It was 32 but so nice. We looked at each other, saying nothing, but John’s eyes shone.

  John tried on the coat and 33 it at once. John wore the coat to school the next day happily and came home with a big 34 . “How do the kids like your coat?” I asked. “They love it,” he said. I started to call him “Lord (老爷) John”.

  Over the next few weeks, there seemed to be a 35 in John. He became more polite, more confident and more pleasing. He would 36 his classmates his pens; he would bring his father a cup of tea when he got home; he would 37 a blind man cross the road.

  When my mother talked about her son’s change with one of his teachers and wondered what caused it, he said, “It must be his 38 !” One day, in the library, my brother and I happened to meet a friend of my father’s, who had not seen us for a long time. John came up and shook hands with him like a 39 ! The friend said in surprise, “Are you John? You have changed so much!”

  When I was nine years old, I used to go to the post office with my mother, sending greeting cards to my aunt in Singapore. To me, these trips were really 16 memories. And receiving mail through a mailbox outside our gate was just as exciting. My small hands could 17 get the mail without using a key! I always couldn’t wait to see how much I was 18 . Oh, a letter! From Singapore! I would run back home and show it to my 19 . When there was a letter for me, I wouldn’t run—I would open it right there.

  After my family moved back to Singapore, I 20 going to the post office. Years later, my company sent me to Shanghai, and the post office found me again. Two years ago I celebrated my 21 with five friends on top of the mountain in Longsheng, China. At sunrise we 22 up to a beautiful view from the mountain top. Later in the afternoon, as we were going 23 the mountain and returning from the sunrise viewing place, a 24 shop caught our attention. It only sold noodles, coffee and had a China 25 sign.

  We asked the owner if she could really send mail. She happily said yes. It seemed hard to believe, 26 we were at the highest top of the mountain. I picked one postcard out and asked my friends to write 27 a birthday note. We bought a stamp, wrote some notes and gave the shop owner the postcard.

  Three weeks later, I arrived home and 28 my mailbox: Hello, postcard! I broke into a big smile.

  That birthday postcard attracted me again to the post office and all its delights. I had 29 the post office all these years. Today I 30 send postcards to friends. And every time I am at the post office buying stamps, I cannot help but smile—how one postcard will make its way across the world and brighten up someone’s day.

  My name is Ben Mansury. I’m fifteen years old and study in a middle school. In school, I never join in any group discussion or stage (舞台) program. So, I never knew what stage nervousness was.

  Our community (社区) has a weekly “Students Ideas” program. About two years ago, I received a(n) 1 from the chairman of our community. He invited me to the “Students Ideas” talk the next morning to speak to the group.

  The time between his call to the next morning was like several weeks for me. The whole night, I could not sleep. Many 2 were coming. One of them was to call the chairman, with regret, and tell him that I could not come. But finally, I thought, if I missed this 3 , the community would never invite me again to any of their programs. So, I decided to go.

  I reached the hall in time. When my turn came and I started, my heartbeat increased and my mouth went dry. I wasn’t even able to 4 the words on the paper properly. I had no idea where I was standing and what I was talking. That was the day when I 5 my biggest weakness: public speaking.

  After I finished, I met with the chairman and 6 what happened to me. He said that this happens to everyone. It is very 7 . He suggested that I should come again the next week.

  I 8 a talk carefully. This time when I gave the talk, I was somewhat comfortable but not confident (自信的). Afterwards, I met with the chairman again and told him about the improvement I 9 I had made. He was kind enough to invite me again.

  For around one month, I practiced a lot for my talk. This time I was feeling comfortable and both the chairman and my neighbors thought I did a good job.

  I learned that everything is 10 if we take the first step, as the saying goes: A journey of thousand miles begins with first step.
