Model Answer 1:
I would like to share a stimulating story about the axes.
The first time I heard of this story was when I was 7 years old. My mom told me it as a bedtime story, and I remembered it since then. The story was about a young woodman, Jack, who lost his axe when crossing the river. He was afraid that if the rancher found that he lost his equipment to earn a living, he would be beaten to death.
So he cried loudly, even the river god heard his tearful voice. The river god decided to help this poor young man, then he found a gold and a silver axe and ask Jack whether they belonged to him.
But he said no. For the last time, was thrilled the river god handed over an iron axe to Jack was thrilled to recognize his axe. He felt really grateful for the river god, and in turn, river god was touched by his honesty. He said, Jack, your honesty would lead you to live a happy life. I thought this story tells us that we may face many temptations, but we couldn’t be greedy and we need to stick to ourprinciples and bottom lines. In this way, we wouldn’t get lost in materialism.
