Grandma Moses is among the most celebrated twentieth century painters of the United States, yet she had barely started painting before she was in her late seventies. As she once said of herself “I would never sit back in a rocking chair, waiting for someone to help me.” No one could have had a more productive old age.
She was born Anna Mary Roberson on a farm in New York State, one of five boys and five girls.(“We came in bunches ,like radishes .”) At twelve she left home and was in domestic service until at twenty-seven, she married Thomas Moses, first in Virginia and then in New York State, at Eagle Bridge .She had ten children, of whom five survived; her husband died in 1927.
Grandma Moses painted a little as a child and made embroidery pictures as a hobby, but only switched to oils in old age because her hands had become too stiff to sew and she wanted to keep busy and pass the time. Her pictures were first sold at the local drugstore and at a fair, and were soon spotted by a dealer who bought everything she painted. Three of the pictures were exhibited in the Museum of Modern Art, and in 1940 she had her first exhibition in New York. Between the 1930’s and her death she produced some 2000 pictures: detailed and lively portrayals of the rural life she had known for so long, with a marvelous sense of color and form. “ I think real hard till I think of something real pretty, and then I paint it.” She said.

The famous American gorilla (猩猩) expert Diane Fossey had a completely new way to study gorillas ---she pretended to be one of them . She copied their actions and way of life--- eating plants and getting down on her hands and knees to walk the way a gorilla dose. It was a new relationship.
Diane Fossey was murdered in Rwanda in 1985 and her story made into the popular film Gorillas in the Mist .It was a long way from King Kong, which is about a gorillas as a monsters (a frightening animal), and helped to show a new idea: the real monster is man, while the gorilla is to be admired.
Today there are thought to be around 48,000 lowland gorillas and maybe 400-500 mountain gorillas in the wild. From the Congo in West Africa, to Rwanda and Uganda further east, they are endangered by hunting and by the cutting down of their forest homes.
Some time ago, I found in my letterbox a little magazine from the World Wide Fund for Nature. It had two photos side by side. One was of a young gorilla. “ This is a species of mammal (哺乳动物),” said the words below it . “ It is being destroyed by man. We must save it for our own good.” The other photo showed a human baby. The words also read: “ This is a species of mammal,” but then went on: “ It is the most destructive(破坏性的) on earth. We must retain it for its own good.”

C People Noble Smuggler
This Thursday ,Irena Sendler will be honored for her work as a smuggler(偷运者). During World War II , the Polish social worker smuggled nearly 2,500 Jewish children out of the Warsaw ghetto(聚集区). She gave them new identities, found them safe places with good-hearted Christians, and kept the children’s real names buried in jars in her neighbors’ ardens. (The play, Life in a Jar, based on her story, is being performed.) At 93, Sendler lives in a Warsaw nursing home and is too weak to travel to Washington DC, to receive the 2003 Jan Karski Award for Valor and Compassion from the American Center of Polish Culture. One of the children she saved will accept the award for her.
You risked your life to save the children.
I was taught by my father that when someone is drowning, you don’t ask if they can swim, you just jump in and help. During the war, everyone was drowning, but mostly the Jewish children.
How did you persuade to give up their children?
I had to answer honestly that I didn’t even know if we would get past the guards.
What was the most frightening moment?
When I saw a priest in charge of an orphanage for Jewish children in the ghetto walk with them out to be killed. The children were in their best Sunday suits. The priest was killed with them.
How did you get the children to behave as you smuggled them out ?
I told the older children to act as if they were sick and sometimes gave the younger ones a sleeping pill. They were told to remember their new names. I also told the children to tell guards they had only been visiting a servant in t he ghetto and were gonging back to their real homes outside.
Did you tell your own two children what you did?
I never told them. Only when my daughter went to Israel did she learn all about me. I thought it was only normal to do so. And it was a very painful subject. It was always on my mind that I couldn’t do more.
