公路上的行人开始惊慌奔逃,车里的司机也拼命地努力冲向前方,好像那一小滴水要毁掉一切似的。

这时有人说"等一等!还有比那一小滴水更可怕的呢!溪流已经溢出了河岸,马上就要将河坝冲垮啦! "

They are dying in my country and yours by bullet, by starvation, disease, arrogance, stupidity and pride.
我想改变世界,不仅仅是因为常常看到战场中牺牲的战士,更是因为在世界上那些贫穷、荒凉的地区,甚至在每个城市的每个角落,到处都有人死亡。人类正在战争、饥饿、疾病,以及人性的傲慢、愚蠢和自大中濒临灭亡。
