It’s a white Christmas in the United States today, with snow falling from Seattle to Maine.
Biting winds with snow swept the Northeast.
Earlier, up to 15 inches of snow fell during a snow storm in Maine, while up to one foot fell in New Hampshire. Winds reached 76 mph on Cape Cod, Massachusetts, while up to 61 mph winds tore through Long Island, New York. Falling snow collected on the runways at Boston’s Logan International Airport, causing temporary flight delays.
The wind was so severe in Pennsylvania and New Jersey that the annual (重演) of George Washington and his soldiers’crossing the Delaware River was canceled, the Washington Crossing Historic Park told ABC News.
Heavy lake effect snow fell in western Michigan.
The National Weather Service has issued a wind-chill warning and advisory (公告) from Montana to Michigan. Bitter cold air in the Midwest produced wind chills Monday morning as low as minus 48 degrees in North Dakota and minus 47 in northern Minnesota.
As this bitter cold made its way east overnight, it was expected to move over relatively mild Great Lakes, producing intense lake-effect snow bands capable of producing 2 to 4 inches of snow in an hour.
• West Coast
That storm system moved overnight through the Rockies, bringing more snow and the threat of avalanches(雪崩). The National Weather Service has issued an avalanche warning for the Wasatch Range Mountains outside Salt Lake City.
21. Why was the annual reenactment of George Washington and his soldiers’ crossing the Delaware River canceled?
A. Because the river was frozen. B. Because the wind was too strong.
C. Because the snow was too thick. D. Because the temperature was too low.

Four days after Dad’s 67th birthday, he had a heart attack. Luckily, he survived. But something inside him had died. His enthusiasm for life was gone. He refused to follow doctor’s orders, and his sour attitude made everyone upset when they visit him. Dad was left alone.
So I asked Dad to come to live with me on my small farm, hoping the fresh air would help him adjust. Within a week after he moved in, I regretted the invitation. He criticized everything I did. I became frustrated. Something had to be done.
One day I read an article which said when given dogs, depressed patients would be better off. So I drove to the animal shelter that afternoon. As soon as I got there, a pointer’s eyes caught my attention. They watched me calmly.
A staff member said: “He got here two weeks ago and we’ve heard nothing. His time is up tomorrow.”
I turned to the man in horror. “You mean you’re going to kill him?”
“Ma’am,” he said gently. “We don’t have room for every unclaimed dog.”
The staff member’s calm brown eyes awaited my decision. “I’ll take him,” I said.
I drove home with the dog on the front seat beside me. I was helping it out of the car when Dad walked onto the front porch. “Look what I got you!” I said excitedly.
Dad wrinkled his face. “I don’t want it,” he muttered, turning back towards the house. Then, suddenly, the dog pulled free from my grasp. He sat down in front of my Dad.
Dad’s anger melted, and soon he was hugging the dog.
This was the beginning of a warm friendship. Dad named the dog Cheyenne. Together they spent long hours walking down dusty lanes and relaxing on the banks of streams.
Dad’s bitterness faded, and he and Cheyenne went on to make many friends. Then, late one night two years later, I felt Cheyenne’s cold nose burrowing(搜寻) through my bed covers. He had never before come into my bedroom at night. I ran into my father’s room and found that he had passed away.
Two days later, my shock and grief deepened when I discovered Cheyenne lying dead beside Dad’s bed. As I buried him near their favorite stream, I silently thanked the dog for restoring Dad’s peace of mind.

A. no longer wanted to live
B. was left alone to get full rest
C. ignored everyone who visited him
D. became unpleasant toward other people

B. Its eyes made her think it was the best dog available.
C. It caught her attention right away and she didn’t want it to be killed.
D. It was good at getting people’s attention and entertaining them.
26. From the last two paragraphs we can conclude that .
A. more attention should be given to old people
B. dogs are so loyal that they usually die for their friends
C. the author’s father and Cheyenne formed a real connection
D. friendship and care is much more efficient than the medicine
27. Which section of a newspaper is the source of the passage?
【答案】24. D 25. C 26. C 27. D
24. 细节理解题。根据第一段His enthusiasm for life was gone. He refused to follow doctor’s orders, and his sour attitude made everyone upset when they visit him. Dad was left alone.可知父亲变得对生活失去热情，不听从医生的命令，对人尖酸刻薄，所以他的态度并不友好。故选D。
25. 考查细节理解。根据第三段 As soon as I got there, a pointer’s eyes caught my attention. 和The police’s calm brown eyes awaited my decision. “I’ll take him,” I said.可知它引起了我的注意，我不忍心它被杀害，所以我带走了这只狗。故选C。
There are many different voices on charity donations recently. Chen TianQiao, one of the Chinese billionaires, gave away $115 million to the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) to help promote brain research. Chen has been interested in the brain research, believing it can advance the industries of artificial intelligence and virtual reality. However, this huge donation has caused heated discussions among Chinese scholars and internet users.
Many criticized him for giving money to a foreign university rather than domestic institutes for brain research, which are developing fast and are catching up with the US in just a few years. RaoYi, a biologist at Peking University, even said the donation was a typical mistake.
Others, however, support his choice. They believe Caltech is a more reasonable choice compared with Chinese research Institutes. Caltech has a long history and has taken a leading position in biology, and therefore it produces more efficient results. What’s more, the results of the research will benefit not only the Americans, but also the rest of the world.
A similar controversial (有争议的) case started two years ago when Pan ShiYi, chairman of SOHO China, donated $15 million to Harvard University to help disadvantaged Chinese Students.
Many believe that China is still far behind in management and use of donated money, and that as a result, Chinese donators are looking abroad. In comparison, Western countries like the US, which have a long history of donating money, have well-developed systems that use money efficiently. They can also provide full access for donors who want to track the use of the money. To get more donations, Chinese universities should be braver and more honest. They need self-reflection rather than envy.
28. Why did Chen’s huge donations draw people’s attention?
A. It was used for brain research rather than for the poor.
B. It was not used efficiently.
C. It was the largest donation.
D. It should have been donated to a Chinese college.
29. Which of the followings can best replace the underlined word “domestic” in the second paragraph?
A. home. B. family.
C. household. D. homepage.
30. The example of Pan Shi Yi was used to ________.
A. inform some Chinese students are poor at education
B. show off the generosity of Chinese billionaires
C. present the widespread disagreement over donating abroad
D. prove the Chinese are crazy about donations
31. What is the main advice does the author give to the Chinese universities?
A. Developing artificial intelligence.
B. Educating the braver and more honest graduates.
C. Developing fast to catch up with the US.
D. Developing systems to use the donations efficiently.
【答案】28. D 29. A 30. C 31. D
28. 推理判断题。由Many criticized him for giving money to a foreign university rather than domestic institutes for brain research, which are developing fast and are catching up with the US in just a few years.可推知Chen的巨额捐款引起了人们的广泛关注是因为它本应该被捐给中国的大学，故选D。
29. 词义猜测题。Many criticized him for giving money to a foreign university rather than domestic institutes for brain research这句话的意思是许多人批评他把钱捐给了国外，而不是国内的脑研究学院，所以“domestic”的意思是国内的，故选A。
30. 推理判断题。由A similar controversial (有争议的) case started two years ago when Pan Shi Yi, chairman of SOHO China, donated $15 million to Harvard University to help disadvantaged Chinese Students.可推断出例举潘石屹的例子是为了说明捐钱给国外，人们对待此事看法的不同，故选C。
31. 推理判断题。由To get more donations, Chinese universities should be braver and more honest. They need self-reflection rather than envy.可推知作者给中国大学的建议是发展有效使用捐赠的体系，故选D。
The Australian beach town of Byron Bay has a traffic problem, especially during holidays, when local streets are full of cars. But now it’s changed. The world’s first fully solar-powered train runs on a restored(修复)train line that was out of use for more than a decade.
The solar systems on the roof of the train send power to a set of batteries that replace one engine; the other engine is still in place and can provide backup power in an emergency. As the train brakes, it generates more electricity, like a hybrid car. At a train station, the train can be plugged in to pull more power from solar systems on the platform roof. If there’s a long period without sun---somewhat unlikely in this part of the world---the train can also plug in to get renewable energy from the local electricity supply.
“The large solar systems on the platform roof coupled with the solar systems on the train roof produce more solar energy per day than is required to operate an hourly return service,” says Holmes, development director of the nonprofit Byron Bay Railroad company, which runs the train. With one full charge, the train can make 12 to 15 trips.
Volunteers fully restored the train to its old condition to attract more riders, which should take more cars off city streets of the beach town. The train fits 100 seated passengers, with room for more to stand, and also has a luggage room for bikes and surfboards. A ride costs a little more than $2.
The nonprofits thinks it’s a model that could be replicated (复制)elsewhere. “Our service has had no government support or funding at all, but for this to be replicated or improved upon, the key is for government to work with enterprises on the program.” Holmes says. “Our service provides an example of how the sun’s energy can be used for sustainable transport solutions.”
32. Why is the solar train brought into use in Byron Bay?
A. To attract visitors. B. To reduce traffic.
C. To fight pollution. D. To use solar energy.
33. Where does the train get energy on sunless days?
A. From its engines. B. From a hybrid car.
C. From the platform roof. D. From the local electricity supply.
34. How does Holmes feel about solar energy equipment?
A. It is labor-saving. B. It is easily operated.
C. It is time-consuming. D. It is power guaranteed.
35. What can be inferred about the solar-powered train from the last paragraph?
A. It may be popularized in the future.
B. More scientific research should be done about it.
C. It could be of little use in solving energy problems.
D. Financial support from the government is badly needed.
【答案】32. B 33. D 34. D 35. A
32. 细节理解题。根据文章第一段The Australian beach town of Byron Bay has a traffic problem, especially during holidays, when local streets are full of cars.可知，太阳能火车在Byron Bay小镇的使用改变了交通拥堵的问题。故选B。
33. 细节理解题。根据文章第二段If there’s a long period without sun---somewhat unlikely in this part of the world---the train can also plug in to get renewable energy from the local electricity supply.可知，在没有阳光期间，太阳能火车可以从当地的电力供应系统得到能源供应。故选D。
34. 推理判断题。根据文章第三段The large solar systems on the platform roof coupled with the solar systems on the train roof produce more solar energy per day than is required to operate an hourly return service可知，火车站站台屋顶的太阳能系统和火车顶部的太阳能系统都可以为火车提供足量的电，从而推断出火车的电量可以得到保证。故选D。
35. 推理判断题。根据文章最后一段The nonprofits thinks it’s a model that could be replicated (复制)elsewhere.和Our service provides an example of how the sun’s energy can be used for sustainable transport solutions.可以推断出，太阳能火车可以在其它地方得到推广。故选A。

People who are described as buttoned-down stay close as possible to the normal way of dressing and behaving. They don’t wear crazy clothing or do unusual things. People and events can both be described as buttoned-down.
If someone is buttoned-up, he or she seems very business-like. In personal relationships, a buttoned-up person is cold and standoffish, meaning they physically and emotionally keep away from others. Buttoned-up people are not warm or friendly. And they do not share their inner thoughts and feelings with others.
In the expression “button up”, button is a verb. It means to stop talking. Now, let’s say you find yourself buttonholed in a conversation at a party. The person just keeps talking and talking and talking! Finally, you can’t take it any longer. You tell the person to button it! This is a direct, but unacceptable way of saying “stop talking”. Button you lip is another equally rude but effective to stop a person who talks too much.
Another kind of difficult person is someone who pushes your buttons. To push someone’s buttons means to know exactly how to get that person angry or upset. People who like to push other people s buttons usually do it for selfish reasons. First they find a person’s weak point. Then they use it to upset him.

We all know that exercise is good for your health. But some kinds of exercise may be better than others.
Running, for example, may help to protect against heart disease and other health problems. Running may also help you live longer. Researchers say it is not important how far you run. It also does not matter how fast or even how often you run. As advertisements for the running shoes Nike say, “Just Do It.”
Recently researchers studied more than 55,000 adults. About one-fourth of the adults reported running regularly. The study found these runners were considerably less likely than non-runners to die of any form of disease, including heart disease. In fact, the runners lived, on average, three years longer than the non-runners.
This study lasted 15 years. During that time, more than 3,400 of the individuals died. About 1.200 of the deaths were linked to heart disease, hear, attack or stroke.
One of the researchers is a man named D.C. Lee, a professor of Iowa State University Compared to non-runners, he said, runners showed a much lower risk of dying from some diseases. “Compared to non-runners, runners showed 30 percent lower risk of death by any causes, including heart attack, stroke and cancer. Also, runners compared to non-runners showed 45 percent lower risk of death by cardiovascular diseases(心血管疾病), including heart attack and stroke.”
D. C. Lee and the other researchers found that speed, distance and how often one runs made little difference in reducing the risk of death. The runners in the study averaged between 10 and 16 kilometers per hour. Mr Lee said slower runners and those who only ran once or twice a week were helped nearly as much as those who ran faster and further. “And also we looked at the inning over time and we found that persistent runners(over six years)showed the biggest benefits, as well.”
24. What does the author mean by quoting Nike’s ad “Just Do it”?

27. What can we know according to Mr Lee?
A. Slower runners and faster runners benefit equally from running.
B. You can benefit most if your speed is over 10km per hour.
C. You must control your speed properly while running.
D. The further you run, the more benefits you will get.
I was wandering around the Albuquerque International Support airport. My flight had been delayed and I heard an announcement: “If anyone near Gate A-4 understands Arabic(阿拉伯语), please come to the gate immediately.” Gate A-4 was my own gate. I went there.
An older woman was crumpled(蜷缩成一团的)on the floor, crying loud. In her traditional Palestinian dress, she reminded me of my grandmother.
“Talk to her,” urged the flight agent. “We told her the flight was going to be late, and she did this.”
I bent over to put my arm around the woman and spoke uncertainly. “Shu-dow-a, shu-bid-uck, habibti? Stanischway, min fadlick, shu-bit-se-wee?” She stopped crying. She thought the flight had been called off. She needed to be in El Paso for a medical treatment the next day. I said, “You’ll get there, just late. Who is picking you up? Let’s call him.”
We called her son. In English, I told him that I would stay with his mother until we got on the plane. She talked with him. Then we called her other sons just for fun. Then we called my dad and they spoke for a while in Arabic and found out that they had several shared friends. After that, I called some Palestinian poets I knew and let them chat with her.
She was, laughing a lot but then, patting my knee and answering questions. She pulled a bag of homemade cookies filled with dates and nuts and topped with sugar from her bag and offered them to the people at the gate. To my amazement, no one declined. It was like a sacrament(圣餐). The traveler from Argentina, the mom from California, the lovely woman from Laredo--- We were all smiling, covered with the same sugar.
I looked around the gate and thought. This is the world I want to live in, one with no anxiety. This can still happen anywhere, I thought. Not everything is lost.

What If We Don’t Get Along?
Teachers want to get along with you and enjoy seeing you learn. But teachers and students sometimes have personality clashes(人格冲突). 31 If you show your teacher that you want to make the situation better, he or she will probably do everything possible to make that happen. Take these steps if the problem seems difficult to solve:
1. Talk to an adult you trust, such as a parent, guidance counselor, or both.
2. 32 You may not feel immediately comfortable with your teachers, but that may change as you get to know one another.
3. If you’ve given it time, talk with your parents about what to do next. Lots of times, a meeting can be set up to discuss the problem. 33 Everyone’s goal should be to create trust and kindness.
Your relationship with your teachers is often your first chance to develop a “business relationship”. They are different from your family relationships and friendships, which are built on affection and love. 34 But they don’t necessarily need to be good friends or like each other a lot. They simply need to respect one another, be polite, and stay focused on the jobs at hand.
When you act this way, and remember that you’re not the only kid in the class, you are
helping your teacher. 35 Teachers also like it when students follow directions and when they learn and obey the rules of the classroom. For instance, there may be rules about listening when another student is talking, about taking turns, or about raising your hand when you want to say something or ask a question.
A. Give it time.
B. This can happen between any two people.
C. This may clear the air and make things better.
D. Your teacher is likely to notice this and appreciate it.
E. Therefore, those teachers rarely show respect towards their students.
F. A teacher cannot necessarily answer all the questions his students ask.
G. In a business relationship, both parties get something out of the relationship.
I was having a period of bad health. I had one operation after another. I was falling 36 faster than the doctors could put me back together. But I just couldn’t bear the operation, the hospital stay, the long recovery and the physical therapy(康复治疗). I told my doctor I was going to try 37 else.
I’d discovered that walking gave me a little 38 . So I started walking. The first day, my wife 39 off our steep Silver Lake hill to a flat street. She got me out of the car, and I walked about two blocks 40 asking to be taken home. The next day, I walked about four 41 .

I became interested in the network of public stairways around Silver Lake I made a 44 of it and walked every public staircase in Silver Lake. That went pretty well, so I 45 onto Echo Park. I was feeling better, so I kept going. The search finally 46 “Secret Stairs: A Walking Guide to the Historic Staircases of Los Angeles’ a book _47 in the spring of 2010. By then, I had 48 . I’d been walking at least an hour a day for three years. My life 49 returned to normal.
In three years of walks, I’ve met dozens of people who’d had 50 experiences of rebirth or recovery. One man told me he’d lost 80 pounds walking the secret stairs and was dating for the first time in a decade. One woman told me she’d 51 knee operation. Another told me she’d been 52 to start ballroom dancing again.
All I’d 53 from the walks was relief from pain. What I got was 54 , community and a whole new experience of my city. Out of the car, on my feet and moving at walking pace, I 55 Los Angeles for the first time.

There are various festivals throughout the world, festivals to satisfy and please the 56 (ancestor), to honor some famous people or important events, and 57 (express) people’s thanks to the God 58 bringing them harvest. For example, in Mexico people observe the Day of the Dead in early November, 59 people eat food in the shape of skulls and cakes with “bones” on them. In India, October 2 is 60 national festival to honour Mohandas Gandhi who helped India become a(n) 61 (depend) country. And in China, the Spring Festival, which 62 (celebrate) in January or February, is the most 63 (energy) and important because it is a festival that looks forward to the coming of spring. 64 are there all these festivals? Because during the festivals, people can get together to eat, drink and have fun with each other, 65 (forget) all the daily struggle and demands for a while.

May I have your attention, please?

Have you heard an old saying “The grass looks greener on the other side of the fence”? It means other places often look better, more interesting than the place where you live. “Let’s go to KFC for dinner and then watch some Japanese cartoons!” We all know it: more and more Chinese kids love American and Japanese food and movies. Some people worry that young Chinese are beginning to feel that way. They see young Chinese ignoring(忽视)Chinese culture and, instead, buying Japanese cartoon books, watching Korean soap operas and even celebrating western holidays.
Foreign books and soap operas are good, but Chinese writers and actors are just as good. As for holidays, Christmas is nice, but it can never have the meaning for Chinese that Spring Festival has, and the West has nothing to compare with the Mid-Autumn Festival. China has lots of cool things in its culture: calligraphy, Beijing Opera, quick meals on the streets, and even Jay Chou! And let’s not forget the part of Chinese culture I like best: its friendliness. Not all countries are as warm as China.
It’s good to enjoy other cultures and learn from them, but they can never replace your own culture. It’s good to look on the other side of the fence, but make sure you take a good long took. You will find that the grass isn’t always greener.
Although some people become worried about that, I don’t think they should. Will we get more powerful without learning from other countries? Will Chinese people live more happily without American fast food? Besides, it’s fun to learn about different cultures. Chinese kids can learn about other cultures and have fun, but they also need to learn more about their own culture. Be proud of Chinese culture and of being Chinese!

Edison Park Community(社区)Church stood for 87 years in northwest Chicago before it was pulled down in2016. Churches come and go, but what makes the passing of the church impressive is the beautiful way its members chose to go out.
Edison Park Community had 300 active members in the 1960s. But by the time the most recent minister(牧师), Rev. Katherine Karch took over, 12 years ago, membership had shrunk unexpectedly. By last year, Edison Park Community was home to only 30 m3mbers. “We couldn’t pay the bills anymore.” Karch says. The church’s members had little choice but to sell their brick building. A developer paid $740,000 for the property(财产)and planned to tear down the church to make room for single-family homes.
Yet the sale of the property created a major change. Edison Park Community is part of the United Church of Christ, in which each church is owned by its members. That means the church belonged to its members. They had the right to deal with the earnings from the sale as they wished.
Yet almost a century of baptisms(洗礼)and Sunday socials had laid down strong community roots. Karch says there was only one idea considered from the start. “What they have chosen to do is donate(捐赠)that money to charities.” she says.
Their first check, for $100,000, went to the Greater Chicago Food and provided more than 300,000 meals for the hungry. Other beneficiaries(受益者)include United Church of Christ’s disaster-relief efforts, and a no-kill animal shelter. Let these extraordinary stories of generosity inspire you to give back to your community.
24. When did Edison Park Community Church begin to stand?
A. In 1929. B. In 1960. C. In 1987. D. In 2004.
25. What does the underlined word in paragraph 2 “shrunk” probably refer to?
A. Ranked. B. Reduced. C. Disappeared. D. Increased.
26. What did the church members do after the sale of the church?
A. They rebuilt another church. B. They equally shared the money.
C. They gave away the earnings. D. They created different ideas.
27. What effect will the story have on people?
A. Surprising. B. Disappointing. C. Encouraging. D. Meaningless.
My first week in the United States was a cultural shock. Everything felt new to me, including the style of conversation, the community I lived in and even the type of food people ate.
In our community back home, people eat mutton and chicken. Pork and beef are also common among other communities, but eating beef is taken as an illegal act. Unlike Nepal, eating beef is common in the West where most of the people follow religions other than Hinduism.
Food is just an example. When people move from one part of the world to another, they should adapt(适应)themselves to the new culture. For example, going to the bars or getting drunk is not acceptable in my community, but it is common in the US after a certain age.
I was raised in a traditional Hindu family in Nepal. We have a conservative(保守的，谨慎的)opinion towards marriage. Arranged marriages(包办婚姻)are common in which families decide whether the two should get married. Free love marriages are not allowed and are seldom seen. Same-sex marriage is also considered impossible.
To me, culture is a matter of habit. The culture is so deep-rooted in people’s minds that most people are against changes. It is always easy for them to do what they have been doing throughout their life. It may be difficult for anyone to adapt to a new culture.
However, with travel being an unavoidable thing for modern people, one always comes across different cultures. In such cases, one should be respectful and adaptive to the culture other people follow. The world is always a better place to live in when we have spaces for people of all cultures.
28. What does the Nepal law forbid people to eat?
A. Pork. B. Beef. C. Chicken. D. Mutton.
29. What can we learn from the passage?
A. Most westerners believe in Hinduism. B. Getting drunk in Nepal is acceptable.
C. Anyone can enter the bars in the US. D. The writer came across a cultural shock.
30. Which may be seen most in Nepal?
A. Open marriages. B. Free love marriages.
C. Same-sex marriage. D. Arranged marriages.
31. What is the writer’s attitude to different cultures?
A. Negative. B. Respectful. C. Conservative. D. Indifferent.
If all the food that’s thrown away in three American cities could be saved, it would provide 68 million meals for people who don’t have enough to eat, according to a recent study.
The researchers found that, in the cities they surveyed(调查), more than a kilogram of edible food per person is wasted each week. Edible food is food you can eat. It doesn’t include things like apple cores(果核), egg shells, or bones from meat. Fruits and vegetables were the most common edible foods found in the dustbin, followed by food leftover from meals. Eggs, bread and milk were also commonly thrown out.
The people taking part in the survey gave several reasons for throwing edible food away. Most said the food went off. Some said they weren’t interested in eating leftovers. A few said the food had passed the “Best Before” date printed on the label(标签). When food is wasted—by families, restaurants or grocery stores—we are also wasting all of the resources that go into producing that food. That means we are wasting water, land, energy and labour, as well as the fuel needed to transport food.
A lot of food is wasted before it even reaches the grocery store(食品杂货商). Some food is damaged while it is being transported from the farm to the stores. Fruits and vegetables that don’t look attractive enough don’t even get put onto the shelves because most people won’t buy them. Grocery stores, restaurants and hospitals also waste a large amount of food. The researchers suggest that grocery stores should donate any food that is still okay to eat to homeless shelters, instead of throwing it away. Prepared meals from hospitals or restaurants could also be donated to shelters.
32. What do we know about edible food from the second paragraph?
A. Fruits are the most common. B. Some has been wasted.
C. It weighs over a kilogram. D. Bone is also edible food.
33. What is the major reason why the edible food is thrown away?
A. It has gone bad. B. People prefer other food.
C. It is not their favorite. D. The date hasn’t been printed.
34. What do the researchers advise grocery stores to do?
A. Help people in need. B. Beautify any food.
C. Discount fine food. D. Throw away outdated food.
35. Which of the following is probably the best title of the passage?
A. How Much Food do You Buy? B. How Much Food do You Eat?
C. How Much Food do You Waste? D. How Much Food do You Need?

One of my happier days was hearing that I was admitted into a medical school. It has been a dream of me for as long as I can remember. My father played big role in my desire to become a physician. See him live a life of services to others inspired me from a young age. Watching him to put on his white coat with the stethoscope(听诊器)around his neck was liked looking at a superhero. Hearing him share stories of how medical care saved patients’ lives was enjoyable. As for me, medicine were the perfect mixture of wonder and science, that deeply attracted me.
