The trash and water were a bad mix. People populated the area by the river and drank its water. This made them sick. Many of them needed medicine and made regular visits to doctors.

乔让世界变得更美好。他在学校里看了一部关于工厂的视频后灵机一动产生了想法。视频讲述的工厂产生很多垃圾,他们把垃圾倒进了河里,小河变成了一条垃圾河。人们依水而居,喝的是河里的水。这样一来,喝了脏水的人们就会生病。很多人因此需要看医生和吃药。

But the video wasn't all bad news. It showed ways to pick up trash and why it's important to do this. It said people can make a difference to their environment. The video's important features made Joe associate trash with hurting people.

然而这部视频里讲述的也并不全是坏消息。里面还提及了处理垃圾的方法以及这样做的重要性。视频还提到人们可以为保护环境尽一份力。视频中这一重要的部分让乔想到了垃圾和因此生病的居民。

One day Joe walked through a park. He recognized some of the problems from the video. One instance of these problems was the trash in the pond. It was full of plastic cups. There was too much trash. Joe didn't want it to hurt anyone.

有一天,乔在公园里散步,他发现了视频中提到的一些问题。其中一个就是池塘里的垃圾。池塘里面扔满了垃圾,全是塑料杯子。乔不想任何人因此受到伤害。

He told his grandfather about the park. His grandfather said, "You know, it's a tradition in our family to help people. That's why we give food to poor people. Maybe you can help people by cleaning the park."

他把公园的所见告诉了爷爷。爷爷对他说:“你知道的,助人为乐是我们家的传统。我们会救济穷人就是这个原因。或许你可以帮忙把公园里的垃圾清理掉。”

Cleaning the park would involve hard work. Joe decided to organize a group to help him. He chose a wide area of the park. It had the most trash. He asked his family and friends to come. On Saturday, he gave everyone a sharp stick. They wondered why. He said, "You use the stick's tip to pick up trash. This makes it easier." They worked for six weeks. Different people helped each time, but Joe was always there.

这可不是意见容易的事。乔决定号召多点人帮忙。他选了公园里一片开阔的区域,那也是垃圾最多的地方。他叫上家人和朋友前来帮忙。周六那天,乔给来帮忙的人没每人发了一根锋利的棍子。大家都不解其意。乔解释说:“用棍子尖的一头捡垃圾会更容易一些。”他们连续去了六个星期。每一次都有不同的人前来帮忙,但乔却从未缺席。
