once i traveled down to arizona to interview a leader on an apache indian reservation (阿帕奇印第安人保留地). it was quite a 1 and expensive journey — i had to fly to phoenix and then take a car. but when i arrived, i 2 that the interview had been canceled (取消). the people at the office told me that the 3 had gone away days earlier. i was a little angry. i explained that i had spent a lot of time and money on the journey and i asked them 4 i had not been told that the interview had been canceled. they didn't answer and instead just looked at the floor 5 . i asked again, and i realized that i was starting to raise my 6 , but i thought that i had a right (权利) to be angry. however, again there was silence. i couldn't understand why these people wouldn't 7 me, but there was nothing more i could do, 8 i turned round and left.

one day, a friend of mine asked me a question, “do you agree with the idea that life is fair?” his question was a good one. it reminded me of 1 a teacher said when i was a high school student — “life isn't fair. we usually think that life 2 be fair, but we sometimes feel sorry for ourselves. 3 , life is not fair and will not be fair.”
life is full of 4 . school is the most challenging place for young people today. when we say that life isn't fair, we mean everyone is 5 . we look different and have different experiences. we can't 6 life to be perfect. life is what we make it.
