The Way God Helps/ Ինչպես է Աստված օգնում

The Way God Helps

Կար մի փոքրիկ գյուղ, գետի ափին: Յուրաքանչյուրը այնտեղ ապրում էր ուրախ և հաճախ աղոթում էին գյուղի տաճարում: Մի անգամ ուժեղ անձրև տեղաց: Գետը լցվեց և գյուղում ջրհեղեղ եղավ: Յուրաքանչյուրը իր տունը փակեց և ապահով թաքնվեց:

Մի տղամարդ վազում էր տաճար: Նա գնաց սենյակ և ասաց,
— ջուրը լցվել է մեր տուն և շատանում է: Եվ ջուրը սկսեց լցվել տաճար: Մենք պետք է լքենք գյուղը, քանի որ այն դանդաղ սուզվում է ջրի տակ: Բոլորը գնացին անվտանգ վայրեր և դուք պետք է միանաք բոլորին: Քահանան այդ մարդում ասաց, — Ես քեզ նման աթեիստ չեմ և հավատում եմ Աստծուն: Ես հավատում եմ Աստծուն և չեմ հեռանա տաճարից: այնպես որ, մարդը հեռացավ:

Շուտով ջրի մակարդակը սկսեց բարձրանալ և հասավ մինչև մարդկանց գոտկատեղին: Քահանան կանգնեց աթոռին: Մի քանի րոպոից եկավ մի մարդ մակույկով, որ փրկի քահանային: Նա ասաց քահանային. «ինձ բնակիչները ասացին, որ դուք դեռ տաճարում եք, այդ պատճառով ես եկել եմ ձեզ փրկելու, խնդրում եմ մտեք մակույկի մեջ», Բայց քահանան հրաժարվում է թողնել տաճարը նույն պատճառով: այդպես մակույկավարը գնաց:

Ջուրը բարձրացավ և հասավ առաստաղին, այդ պատճառով քահանան բարձրացավ տաճարի գագաթին: Նա աղոթում էր Աստծուն փրկել իրեն: Շուտով եկավ ուղղաթիռ և բաց թողեց պարանից սնդուղքը և խնդրեց նրան բարցրանալ ուղաթիռի, որպեսզի նրանք կարողանան քահանաին ապահով տեղ հասցնել: Հավատացյալը հրաժարվեց գնալ, բերելով նույն պատճառաբանությունը: Ուղղաթիռը գնաց որոնելու և փրկելու մյուսներին:

Վերջապես երբ տաճարը անցել էր ջրի տակ, քահանան բարձրացրեց գլուխը և սկասեց բողոքել. «Աստված իմ, ես երկրպագել եմ քեզ իմ ամբողջ կայնքում և իմ մեջ հավատ եմ պատել: Ինչու՞ դու չեկար ինձ օգնության:» Աստված հայտնվեց նրա առաջ և ժպիտով ասաց. «Օհ գիժ մարդ, ես եկա քեզ փրկելու 3 անգամ: Ես եկա վազելով ձեզ մոտ, ասելու, որ գնանք անվտանգ վայր, ուրիշ գյուղացիների հետ, ես եկա մակույկով, ես եկա ուղաթիռով: Ինչումն է իմ մեղքը, եթե դուք չճանաչեցիք ինձ:»

Քահանան ընդունեց իր մեղքը և ներեղություն խնդրեց: Նա ստացավ հնարավորություն գնալ անվտանգ վայր, որը նա ընդունեց:

Teenagers and money (pocket money)

I think any teenager gets pocket money from their parents. So me too. They give me money for food and for a bus. I prefer to collect money, even if there is no specific goal, because one day they will definitely be needed. I save money just by not eating at school. Our school is famous for its trips, and so as not to bother parents, with the collected money, I can just go on a trip. I mostly spend money on accessories, make-up or clothes. Sometimes I buy smth that I just put somewhere in the room and don’t use, or albums of my favorite artists that in fact I do not actually use too.

Gender Inequality

There are currently inequalities between gender all over the world. And there is a movement that is fighting for equality, the feminist movement. Thanks to this movement, women in many countries have almost equal rights with men. That’s why people think that feminism is not needed in this century, but there are countries that really need feminism. One of them is India, where only 9% of women have access to education. One of these countries is Afghanistan, where about 80% of women get married at a young age, 87% do not receive an education, etc.

In addition to serious problems, there are many stereotypes, such as: girls are weaker, only girls must be housewives and do housework, girls are bad drivers, girls cannot be mechanics, pilots… I think that equality will be only when not only rights are equal, but the mentality of people is not limited and they will think about it equally and correctly.

My favorite thing

That’s lot of things I like. but today i want to talk about my diary. I’ve always loved diaries and I had a lot of them, but this one is special for me. I do not write about my day, or something like that in it. There are lot of different pages, and it all depends on the mood. I can even draw, and even drawings dominate there. Mostly I draw anime characters, sometimes I write quotes from this anime… I can write some plans, or make some interesting pages, like I rate the anime, doram or film that I watch, etc. I always take it with me, no matter where I go. Еvery time I see beautiful stickers, scotches, etc. in the store, I immediately buy it, thinking that they will fall perfectly for decorating new pages. To be honest, my motivation often disappears, and I may not write anything there for weeks, so I feel that my diary will be with me for a long time, since it is unlikely that the pages will end ever. But when my motivation comes, I can’t stop, because I always have a lot of ideas of what to do. And the fun fact is that my bestie and I keep similar diaries, we have bought it together. This makes it even more important to me. So there is my comfort zone, here I feel free and good… I like the time I spend on my diary.

Essay: Writing a Letter to Yourself

Your school is trying to decide on a famous person to give a speech or presentation to students. Who do you think they should choose? Write an essay to convince your principal.

If my school tries to decide on a famous peson to give a speech or presentation to students, I’d suggest inviting BTS. And it’s not because I’m the fan of them. I think they’re a good example for teenagers. Тhe path they went by, teaches a lot of things… Тhey literally have achieved everything that they have now, out of nothing. Now we all know, that they are billionaires, but at the beginning they even didn`t have enough money for food, they had a lot of problems that I don’t want to talk about now, there is always a lot of hаtе in their side, etc. . So it’s a good motivation to go for our dreams and never give up.
I watched their interviews and listened to their songs, too much. And they teach only good things. And the most important of them, in my opinion, is we all need to love ourselves. And not only this actually. I would like to quote an excerpt from the «Remarks by BTS’ Kim Namjoon (RM) at the launch of Generation Unlimited, at the UN General Assembly».
«So, let’s all take one more step. We have learned to love ourselves, so now I urge you to “speak yourself. Tell me your story. I want to hear your voice, and I want to hear your conviction. No matter who you are, where you’re from, your skin colour, your gender identity: just speak yourself. Find your name, find your voice by speaking yourself.»
So we are in high school, we are just ordinary teenagers, and we all need to know these things and learn to do this. We need a «cure» for depression and stress, of which there is so much in this period. and speaking by my own example, they teach to live.
