ESL 190: Boy Starts Huge Fire


Download


A ten-year-old boy confessed to his parents that he was playing with matches on a windy day in October in southern California. The Santa Ana winds were howling that day, and his carelessness resulted in the Witch fire. That fire destroyed 18,000 acres of woodland and 12 homes. The total damage and the cost of firefighting efforts were estimated at $25 million. Ironically, his parents' house was untouched by the fire.

The authorities did not immediately announce what they would do to the boy or his parents. An official in the district attorney's office said that, probably, no criminal charges would be filed. But the parents would still be liable for civil charges. That is, victims could sue for their losses and rebuilding costs. Suing the middle-class family for millions would be the easy part, though; collecting the millions would be unlikely.

Homeowners disagreed on what should be done. "I don't have a house anymore," said John Ritter. "It will take at least two years to build a new house, and my insurance is only going to pay about half the cost of the new house. Ordinarily, I would say that the boy and his parents ought to be put in jail for at least 10 years. But because their house didn't burn down, I think the law should just allow me to trade property with them. They can have my burned-down house, and I can move into their house. That's fair enough for me."

"We all make mistakes, especially when we're young," said Michael Richards, another homeowner whose house burned down. "I remember setting my sister on fire when I was about 10. I didn't mean to do it, of course, and she jumped into the lake, so she was okay. But it could have been a terrible accident. I think the poor boy has learned a valuable lesson. People should forgive, rebuild, and get on with their lives."

Đứa bé trai gây hoả hoạn lớn

Một bé trai mười tuổi thú nhận với cha mẹ là đã nghịch diêm trong một ngày gió lớn vào tháng Mười ở Nam California. Gió Santa Ana gào thét vào ngày đó, và sự bất cẩn của em đã gây ra một trận hoả hoạn phù thuỷ. Ngọn lửa đã thiêu đốt 18,000 mẫu rừng và 12 căn nhà. Tổng thiệt hại và phí tổn chữa cháy ước tính $25 triệu. Vững chãi bằng kim loại, căn nhà của bố mẹ em đã không bén lửa.

Chính quyền không tuyên bố ngay lập tức họ sẽ làm gì đứa bé trai và cha mẹ. Một luật sư nói rằng, có thể không sẽ có hồ sơ tội ác. Nhưng cha mẹ vẫn chịu trách nhiệm công dân. Đó là, những nạn nhân có thể kiện sự mất mát và phí tổn xây nhà lại. Kiện một gia đình giai cấp trung bình một số tiền triêu đô thì dễ, dù; việc thu hàng triệu đô thì không như vậy.

Chủ sở hữu nhà bất đồng ý kiến cho việc phải làm gì. "Tôi không có nhà nữa," John Ritter nói. "Sẽ mất hai năm để xây nhà mới, và bảo hiểm của tôi chỉ trả phân nửa nhà mới. Thông thường, tôi nói rằng đứa bé và cha mẹ của nó phải bị bỏ tù ít nhất 10 năm. Nhưng vì nhà họ không bị cháy, tôi nghĩ luật sẽ phải cho phép tôi trao đổi thương mại tài sản
với họ. Họ có thể có căn nhà cháy của tôi, và tôi có thể dời vào căn nhà của họ. Điều đó đủ công bằng cho tôi."

"Chúng ta đều làm lỗi, đặc biệt khi còn trẻ," Michael Richards một người sở hữu nhà bị cháy khác nói. "Tôi nhớ tôi làm chị tôi cháy khi tôi cỡ 10 tuổi. Tôi không cố ý, dĩ nhiên, và chị nhảy vào hồ, nên chị không sao. Nhưng đó có thể đã là một tai nạn khủng khiếp. Tôi nghĩ bé trai đã học được bài học giá trị. Người ta nên tha thứ, xây dựng lại và tiếp tục cuộc sống của họ."

Một cậu bé mười tuổi ở miền Nam California thú nhận với cha mẹ là mình đã đùa nghịch với mấy que diêm trong một ngày Tháng Mười lộng gió. Cơn gió Santa Ana gào thét trong ngày hôm đó, và sự bất cẩn của cậu đã gây ra một trận hoả hoạn kinh hoàng. Trận cháy đã tàn phá 18.000 mẫu Anh đất rừng và 12 căn nhà. Tổng thiệt hại và chi phí của nỗ lực chữa cháy đã được ước tính là 25 triệu đô-la Mỹ. Trớ trêu thay, căn nhà của cha mẹ cậu vẫn còn nguyên vẹn trong trận hoả hoạn.

Nhà chức trách không lập tức loan báo họ sẽ làm gì đối với cậu bé và cha mẹ cậu. Một quan chức trong văn phòng luật sư của khu vực cho biết, có lẽ, không một cáo buộc hình sự nào được lập thành hồ sơ. Nhưng các bậc phụ huynh vẫn phải chịu trách nhiệm về những cáo buộc dân sự. Có nghĩa là, các nạn nhân có thể kiện ra toà cho những tổn thất và chi phí tái thiết của mình. Kiện những gia đình trung lưu để có tiền triệu có lẽ là chuyện dễ, thế nhưng, quyên góp tiền triệu sẽ khó thực hiện được.

Chủ nhân các ngôi nhà bất đồng trong việc nên làm như thế nào. "Tôi không còn nhà ở," John Ritter nói, "Sẽ mất ít nhất hai năm để xây dựng một căn nhà mới, và bảo hiểm của tôi sẽ chỉ trả một nửa chi phí cho căn nhà mới thôi. Theo lệ thường, tôi sẽ nói là thằng nhỏ và cha mẹ nó phải ở tù ít nhất 10 năm. Nhưng do căn nhà của họ không bị cháy rụi, tôi nghĩ luật pháp nên cho phép tôi được trao đổi tài sản với họ. Họ có thể có căn nhà bị cháy rụi của tôi, và tôi có thể dọn sang căn nhà của họ. Như thế mới thật công bằng đối với tôi."

"Chúng ta đều gây ra lỗi lầm, đặc biệt lúc chúng ta còn trẻ," Michael Richards, chủ nhân một ngôi nhà bị cháy rụi khác, nói. "Tôi nhớ tôi đã đốt chị mình lúc tôi lên 10. Tôi không định làm như vậy, dĩ nhiên là thế rồi, và chị tôi nhảy xuống hồ, nên chị không sao cả. Nhưng chuyện đó đã có thể là một tai nạn khủng khiếp. Tôi nghĩ cậu bé tội nghiệp đã học được một bài học quý giá. Mọi người nên tha thứ, xây dựng lại và tiếp tục vui sống thôi."

ESL đăng ký: Bạn không cần phải đăng ký gì cả. Chỉ việc nhẩy vào bài ESL 1 học và làm bài tập. Tiếp tục những bài kế tiếp càng nhanh càng tốt. Mình sẽ 888 và thỉnh thoảng cùng nhau nhắc nhở cho vui hén. Chứ thật ra việc học là việc của tự bản thân mình. Mình giỏi thì mình được nhờ hén.
