I was eleven years old standing outside in just my underwear while I watched the house that I grew up in rapidly burn to the ground, A few minutes1I had been in a deep sleep in my nice, warm bed when a shout woke me up. Jenny's2 was just next to mine and my brother's. A fire3there and woke her up.4 her, my older brother began to take action. While I stumbled(跌跌撞撞). in the 5 and darkness, he ran from room to room quickly waking everyone in the house. The house, however, was over 50 years old and made of wood. Before we could do anything the fire took it down.
I stood there shaking while the fire burnt my books, clothes and toys. I watched6while my Mom cried and my Dad shouted. I wondered what was going to happen to us now that we had lost all of our things. As I looked around, though, 1 realized something for the first time: The things that7are not things but our life. Everything that was important had survived(幸免于). the fire. Our lives would continue.
I still think of that fire in the8. It helped me to become who I am today. It showed me for the very first time what is truly 9in life. It helped me to learn10love is far more important than the things we own. Love others. Help everyone. Let the love inside of you make this world a warmer place. Let your soul shine brightly.
