Dear Mr. Hush,

I just learned over the radio that you feel as bad as I do about the way people use their cellphones. Very often in public places, people speak loudly on their cellphone, and we have to hear about other people’s business. But who cares about that? Not me! Why should I know the life of people I don’t even know? It’s really nice that someone famous like you speaks out for a quiet living space.

And it’s even more wonderful to know that you yourself always talk quietly when you have to use the cellphone in public places. Thanks for NOT sharing what you are talking about. We have shared too much noise already!

A Person on Your Side

When you hear birds singing, do you want to sing with them? When the light wind blows, can you feel its friendly touch on your face? Are you excited to see the first little flower in the early spring?

Nature can color our everyday lives with lovely surprises. All we have to do is get close to it and feel it from our heart. If we find some time to enjoy the simple, easy moments under the clear sky, along the quiet river, or just in the park near our houses, we can feel many wonderful things out there.

Why not get away from your busy work and take a rest in Mother Nature’s arms? Sing to Nature’s music, dance with the wind, and look for the magic of life.

You’ll find the gift Nature has prepared for you.

I saw this picture in this week’s Time magazine. A photographer named Gregory Heisler sent the picture to Time. The boys in the picture are all wearing different clothes, but they all share the same face. They do not just look like each other. In fact, they are the same person. Heisler ‘madethis funny picture on the computer. But in the future, with the science ofcloning’ (copying living things), a picture like this one may not just be a computer trick.

The idea of cloning began a long time ago. It became real when some animals like frogs were successfully cloned. At first, I didn’t care much about these studies. However, when some studies showed that evenpeoplecould be cloned, I felt the studies had gone too far.

I don’t know much about science, but I do know I would hate to live on a planet full of copies of me. I found myself scared by the smiles of the copied boys when I looked at the picture again. To me, a world of cloned people is a world where the rules of nature are broken, which may bring a lot of problems we’ve never thought of.
