马可斯住在海边的一个小郊区。他是个倔强的孩子,只在乎自己。他的父亲是一家公司的化学家,他想在公司里为马科斯谋一个职位。而马科斯却选择了送牛奶的工作。每天早上他都带着乳制品去杂货店。

One day, Marcus was jogging down the street with a gallon of milk to give to a merchant. He didn't want to be late. He ran down a path beside a large canal. A wall there kept water from coming into the town during high tide. But Marcus saw a small hole in the wall. Marcus knew that if the wall broke, it would be a tragedy for the town.

一天,马可斯拿着一加仑牛奶在街上一路小跑,他要将牛奶给一个商人送去。他不想迟到。他沿着一条大运河旁边的小路跑。河边有一堵墙挡住了涨上来的潮水。但是马库斯看到墙上有个小洞。他知道,如果这堵墙倒塌了,对这个城镇来说将是一场悲剧。

At first, he hesitated. He had to choose between helping himself and helping the town. There was only one way to save the town. It seemed crazy to him, but it was the only thing he could do. He poked his finger into the hole. This didn't fix the problem forever, but it did postpone the tragedy.

起初,他犹豫了。他必须在帮助自己和帮助城市之间做出选择。这是拯救这座城市的唯一机会了。这对他来说似乎很疯狂,但这是他唯一能做的事。他用手指堵住了墙洞,虽然这并没有解决根本问题,但确实推迟了悲剧的发生。

His finger ached. He felt the chill of the arctic water as it splashed him. There was no one else around. He knew he had to wait until the tide descended. It was very difficult, but Marcus stayed there and saved the town.
