Dear Mr. Help:

Daniel was my best friend in high school. I 21 him for the first time on the school bus. He was nice, and most important of all, we both were interested in sports. We soon became good friends. I 22 basketball with him after school in the gym. High school was a great time for us, and we enjoyed the "men's talk" between us.

But things 23 since we graduated. Daniel can't see me very often because he's got a girlfriend. I try to talk to him, but he keeps avoiding me. Daniel 24 me several times that he needs more time to be with his dear Gloria. How can a girlfriend be more important than a best friend? Do you think I should find a new friend? Or should I get a girlfriend, too?

Johnny

One evening, my dad asked me to buy some bread for dinner. It was dark and cold outside. I rode a bike to a store near my school. When I left the store, it got even darker, so I got on my bike right away. Then I found a woman in a white dress riding a motorcycle after me. She followed me for a long time. I rode very fast and started to cry for help, but no one was there. I was too scared and too tired to ride any faster. At last, I gave up. The woman stopped in front of me and said, "Why were you riding so fast, Ken? It's dangerous!" I looked at the woman. "Oh! It's you, Mom! You really scared me.

Read Amy's diary and answer the questions.

May 30, 2003

Today I met an American on my way home. He asked me some questions in English, but I couldn't understand him. I was nervous and couldn't say a word.

I felt so depressed.

I study English very hard and I usually get the best grades on the English tests. I am always looking for opportunities to practice speaking English. But when the opportunity comes, I can't do anything.

I think I have to study English much harder.

When I was a little girl, my family lived in a small village. There was a very beautiful river near my home. The water was clean and cool. I liked to go fishing there with my mom. We would catch fish, look for clams and play in the water. There were also a lot of birds near the river. We would spend all day watching the birds. Life was beautiful and wonderful in the old days.

Now my family lives in the city. Last Sunday my daughter asked me to take her to see the beautiful river I was always talking about. "I want so much to go fishing there with you and grandma," she said.

When we went to the river, we only saw a factory and a mountain of garbage. My mom was surprised, my daughter was disappointed, and I was sad --- the river was my best friend; I grew up with it. Now there are no fish in it; the birds are gone, too. I hear it crying for help. But what can I do?
