Charlie can’t remember when he lost his heart

Though he knows who took it.

The girl ran away with Charlie’s heart,

And he kept looking for her.

Years later Charlie met the girl on the road.

But she wasn’t the one he used to know.

He tried to talk to her the same way as before.

But nothing showed she was the one of years ago.

Now Charlie knows:

He can take his heart back and say goodbye to the girl.

It’s time for him to let her go, to let it go.

It’s time to find someone else to lose his heart to.

Here are the lyrics of a song.

Don’t Ask Him Why

by Tim Blair

He was afraid.
He was knocked on the head.
He was too little to know why Mom and Dad didn’t like him.
He was only five when he was sent to the hospital.

So don’t ask him why he did not cry for help
He was too little to answer the question.
He was too young to know he could ask for help.

Sometimes things go wrong in this world.
Still there must be something we can do
Something to give him hope and love.

So let’s do it. Do it. Do it.
Give him your hand.
Give him your love.
Only you and I can help him.

So don’t ask him why.
Never ever ask him why.

Vivian sent a letter and a picture to Gloria.

Dear Gloria,

How have you been? I miss you very much. It's my second year in Burney. School is not a problem for me, and I have made some friends in my class.

Here's a picture of my classmates. The girl standing next to me is Sally. She has beautiful long hair. And the boy in the cap is the cutest person in the class; we all call him Jolly Jerry. The other boy is Jason. I think he is smart and nice. I'm thinking of asking him to a movie. What do you think? Please give me some suggestions on what I should do. Maybe I'll have a boyfriend when you see me next time!

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.
