As a young man, Al was a good artist. He has a wife and two fine sons. One night, his older son had a serious stomachache. Neither Al nor his wife thought that it was very serious. But the boy died suddenly that night.
The death could have been avoided(避免) if he had realized the seriousness of the situation. So Al always felt guilty(内疚). To make matters worse, his wife left him a short time later. He was alone with his six-year-old younger son. Al could not stand the hurt and pain, and he turned to alcohol(酒精) for help. He sold things to drink.
Al began to lose everything he had—his land, house, etc. Finally Al died alone in a small bar. Hearing of Al’s death, I thought, “What a complete failure(失败)!”
Now his younger son, Ernie, is an adult. He is one of the kindest, most caring, most loving men I have ever known. I saw the love between Ernie and his children, thinking that kindness and caring had to come from somewhere.
I hadn’t heard Ernie talked much about his father. One day, I worked up my courage to ask him what his father had done so that he became such a special person. Ernie said quietly, “As a child until I left home at 18, Al came into my room every night, gave me a kiss and said, “Love you, son.”
Tears came to my eyes as I realized that I had been a fool to tell Al as a failure. He had been a kind loving father, and left behind his best love.
1.At first there were four people in Al’s family.
2.Al always felt guilty because his wife left him.
3.Al sold everything he had—his land, house to drink alcohol.
4.Ernie was a complete failure just like his father.
5.At the end of the story, the writer thought Al was a loving father.

My 16-year-old son, Dylan, told everyone his trip to South Africa last summer. It was one of the most amazing trips of his life. Most people would think that he was on a vacation there. But Dylan spent almost the whole ten days of his trip building houses for people there. It was volunteer work. It was hard and dirty. I never thought that he would enjoy it, but he loved it.
It is one of the most important things for parents to encourage teenagers to do volunteer work. And the amazing thing is, once they get a taste of it, teenagers will love to volunteer. And students who do volunteer work do better in school than those who don’t volunteer. In fact, volunteering provides many things for teenagers. They can get a wonderful experience and a good chance (机会) to meet new people.
It’s not difficult to find volunteer jobs for teenagers. They can find them in hospitals, libraries, children’s museums and so on.
