少年 (Teenagers) — Lucy Ruo Xi Li

        人们常说,十几岁是人生的花季,是属于少年的大好年华。记得有个名人说:“没有人在年少时想成为一个普通人,一个人就算再平凡普通也不应该碌碌无为,就算没上过赛场,没登过舞台,至少也遇到过坎坷,就算失败被伤害也不应放弃梦想”。年少的我们可能很多事情不能自己掌控,即使孤独寂寞,也要坚强的走下去,少年是无知者无畏,少年更是百折不挠、矢志不渝。

        我认为少年不该拘泥于这片小小的天空,应该站在更高更远的地方,去看一看世界是的样子,在这风华正茂的年纪里活得闪闪发光,活得充满希望,人生路途滚烫,未来万丈光芒璀璨,少年应当是勇往直前的,向前跑,莫回头。

        疫情回国这段时间,常常与我年少的朋友聊关于自己理想的话题,有一天我们相伴骑车行走在在清华大学校园,更是将理想充斥在心间,少年强则国强,我们浑身充满了力量,这一刻已下定决心迈开大步奔向我们的梦想。         少年努力正当时,不负韶华不负己!相信在将来某一刻,我们能够平静地说,“我来过,我无悔,我快乐。”不要留下遗憾,为了青春,为了梦想,少年们,奋斗吧!

People often say that teenagers are in the flowering stage of life, and they belong to the good years of young people.  I remember a celebrity once said: “No one wants to be an ordinary person when they are young. No matter how ordinary a person is, they shouldn’t be inactive. Even if they have never been on the soccer field or on the stage, they have at least encountered ups and downs, even if they fail, even if they get injured, they will not give up the opportunity to accomplish their dreams.”  As youths, we may not be able to control many things by ourselves. Even though we are lonely and tired, we must continue to be strong. Youths are ignorant yet fearless , and young minds are persevering and determined.

I don’t think young people should stick to this little patch of sky. They should stand higher and farther to see what the world is like. They live, gleaming in this magnificent age, and youth is full of hope. The journey of life is scorching, but the future is shining brightly. Teenagers should be brave enough to head forwards, run forward, don’t look back.

During the period when I returned to China, I often talked with my friends about my ambitions. One day we were riding bicycles together on the campus of Tsinghua University. We filled our hearts with initiative. Strong youths make a strong country. At this moment, our bodies are filled with energy. We decided to start taking big steps towards our dreams. When the youth work hard, they live up to their time!  I believe that at some point In the future, I can say tranquilly; “I have been here, I have no regrets, I am happy.” Don’t leave regrets, for the sake of our youth and dreams, teenagers, work hard!
