One evening I took a pleasant walk by the ocean. When the waves came in, many starfish fell on the beach. Some starfish went back into the water, and they were safe. But other starfish were still on the sand. They would die if they did not get into the water. There were many starfish on the beach that night. It made me sad, but I knew I could not fix the problem. I stepped very carefully so I did not damage them.

一天晚上,我在海边悠然自得地散步,海浪冲上来很多海星。很多海星随着波浪又退回了对它们安全的水里。然而还是有一部分被留在了沙滩上,如果不及时回到水里就会死掉。那天晚上,海滩上满是海星。我很难过,因为救不了它们。我每一步都小心翼翼,以免踩到它们。

Then I saw a little girl. She was also sad about the starfish. She wanted to prevent all of them from dying. She asked me if I could perhaps help her.

然后我看见了一个同样因此而难过的小女孩。她想救它们,所以跑来问我能否帮忙一起救救这些海星。

To be frank, I don't think we can do anything, I said.

The little girl started to cry. She sat back against a rock and thought for a while. Finally, the emotion was gone. She stopped crying and stood up. Then she picked up a starfish and threw it into the water.

女孩听后就哭了。她靠着一块岩石坐下来想了一会。终于,她抹干眼泪,不再显得悲伤。她站起来开始拿起一只海星扔回水里。

What are you doing? I asked her. But she did not answer me. She just threw as many starfish as she could. "You cannot save all of them!" I said.

“你在做什么呢?”我问她。但她没有理睬我,只是尽力把海星都扔回海里。“你救不了这么多的!”我说道。

She stopped to look at me. "No, I cannot save them all," she replied. Then she picked up a very big starfish and said, "But I can save this one." And then she smiled and threw the starfish as far as she could into the ocean.

她停下来对我说:“对,我确实救不了全部海星,”随后她拿起一只大海星继续说道:“但我能救这一只。”然后她笑了,边笑边尽力把海星往水里扔。
