There was a wonder-filled little girl who was hurt so badly that when she entered adult life, she thought she was so bad that others just couldn't be nice to her.
But she had a lot of curiosity, which kept her going. She sought many wise people to help her understand why she was so bad that her mother hurt her and why she was unable to be better so that men wouldn't hurt her.
She was on a journey tha t she thought was to help her be “better”. She carried a big bag with her everywhere she went. Inside it were all the hurts she had experienced. Because she was so eager to please those who offered their wisdom, she willingly agreed with what they said about forgiving. But she held that bag of hurts tightly.
After 50 years of carrying that bag around and showing it to all she met as if it were proof
that she was a good person, she decided to open it up and just see what happened. When she looked inside, it was filled with bits of paper. At one time they had words on them, detailing the hurts. But time had faded(褪色) the words and all that was left was some useless paper. She had been struggling to carry this bag that held nothing but the image of something that once was.
She saw the absurdity (荒谬) of carrying that bag around. It made her laugh. But letting go
of the paper and having pity for those that hurt her, this little girl was able to become a woman
with beautiful hair. The woman looked in the mirror and said, “I am lovable.” Although it took many years, she was finally open to bringing love and respect into her life.
21. When she grew up, the little girl wondered_____________.
A. why she couldn’t be loved
B. where she should go
C. how she could be a sweet girl
D. why she was hurt so deeply
22. The woman laughed in the end because_________________.
A. she had beautiful hair
B. she became lovable
C. she became a wise woman

C. You will get peace after forgiving others.
D. You will be loved after changing your image.

(Wonderful angel who helped me greatly by Kim)
I was so lucky to find Elder Helpers on the web and even luckier that Laura decided to help me get organized.

I am so lucky and grateful to have met her and to have received her generous help.

Americans are thinking about national education standards recently developed by teachers and other education experts. The National Governors Association (NGA) and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) led the effort.
The United States, unlike other nations, has never had the same school standards across the country. What is the reason? Education is not discussed in the Constitution. That document limits the responsibilities of the federal(联邦的) government. Other responsibilities, like education, fall to each state.
Local control of education probably was a good idea two hundred years ago. People stayed in the same place and schools knew what students needed to learn. But today, people move to different cities. And some people work at jobs that did not exist even twenty years ago.
Many American educators say that getting a good education should not depend on where you live. They say that some states have lowered their standards in order to increase student scores on tests required by the No Child Left behind Act.
Kara Schlosser is communications director for the CCSSO. She says the new standards clearly state what a student should be able to do to be successful in college and work.
Forty-eight states have already shown approval for the standards. Two states refuse to accept the idea. Critics say that working toward the same standards in every state will not guarantee excellence for all. Some educators in Massachusetts say adopting the national standards will hurt their students because the state standards are even higher. Others say the change will be too costly, requiring new textbooks and different kinds of training for teachers. Still others fear federal control.
Supporters say the standards are goals and do not tell states or teachers how to teach. They also say the federal government is not forcing acceptance. However, approving the standards will help states qualify (取得资格) for some federal grant money.
28. What would be the best title for the passage?
A. Local Control of Education Standards out of Date
B. Education Standards in Each State--Good or Bad?
C. American National Education Standards under Consideration
D. Acceptance of the New Standards in the United States
29. Why is local control of education no longer a good idea today?
A. Because local standards are limited.
