[verse 2] When she arrived in the city of the stars Blinded by the lights, a burning in the heart She believed to play what she called her part A member of society to satisfy her dreams No one paid attention on her skills So she found crack is another way to fill The emptiness inside right now she got her thrill Guess, who gave his life away? she did it every day [narration-part] Why did she throw her life away? Why did she say don't call just wait? [c-part] If you wanna go to the city of stars Can you help me to find my girl Maria She once was an actress and a beauty queen Then the drugs took over and made her mean I tried to stand by her side make her feel alright But she wished to get over to the other side And since I can't really get her out of my mind I'm asking you, won't you help me to find She told me

The Oliver neighborhood of East Baltimore An area of approximately thirty- two square blocks in east- central Baltimore City. The district consists of brick row houses that are still residential. Interspersed among these structures are quite a few brick and stone churches and public service buildings, such as firehouses and schools. The district contains around 2, 000 buildings. Though the houses have suffered from the neglect of maintenance, they are generally in good shape, and a small amount of restoration activity is occurring in the neighborhood.
Illegal drug trade and drug dealers For some drugs, large-scale drug production is not usually located in developed countries where those drugs are illegal — rather, those drugs are often manufactured or harvested in developing nations where corruption and instability allows producers to operate with minimal interference from law enforcement agencies. High demand for illegal drugs on the black market leads to the formation of complex illegitimate production, smuggling, and distribution networks that span national borders and generate billions of dollars of revenue. networks that span national borders and generate billions of dollars of revenue. Illegal supply to consumers is generally via criminal “drug dealers” who purchase drugs in bulk or produce their own. Such dealers are stereotypically associated with organized crime syndicates, though in reality they often work freelance and bear no connection to organized criminal groups. The motivations for participation in the drug trade vary greatly depending on the specific drug. 执法机构 大量 ( 整批散 装 ) 固定地 组织，联合
Foster care 看护 A child may need foster care because ☆ he / she is a victim of abuse or neglect ☆ the parent / legal guardian has died ☆ the parent / legal guardian is in jail ☆ the parent / legal guardian abandoned him / her ☆ the parent / legal guardian has an alcohol or drug abuse problem ☆ the parent / legal guardian is unable to care for him / her due to physical or mental illness
Children enter foster care when an assessment indicates a child will be at risk for harm if they remain in the home, and need to live outside of the family home to be safe. A child may need foster care because the child is a victim of abuse or neglect, or the parent / legal guardian has died, is in jail, abandoned the child, has an alcohol or drug abuse problem, or due to physical or mental illness, is unable to care for the child. Sometimes a youth may run away from home to escape abuse and neglect or because he / she has conflicts with the rest of the family. Children who are removed from their parents’ or legal guardian’s homes are cared for in out-of-home placement settings such as foster care homes, group residential homes, residential care facilities or with a family member. 法定监护人
The tragic story of the Dawson family in Baltimore This shocking event happened in October, 2002. The Dawson family — Angela Dawson, her husband, and five children — were all killed when a drug dealer set their house on fire in retaliation for Mrs. Dawson’s undaunted stand against drug trafficking in their Baltimore neighborhood. On the picture, you can see the local people are commemorating the Dawson family. 报复 勇敢的， 无畏的
Do you know the story of the prodigal son? Are there any sayings about the prodigal son?
Spot dictation The Prodigal Son A man had two grown sons and the younger came to him and said, “Give me my share of the inheritance now.” So his father divided all his assets and gave the younger son his share. The first born was to inherit a double portion so the younger son now had one third of all his father's property. Soon after this the younger son took everything his father had given him and went away to a country where he lived a debauched life and used up everything. Just as he became poor a great famine spread over that country and the young man began to. Finally he had learned his lesson and it came to him to return to his father, “My father's lowliest servants have food and here I'm starving to death. I will go back to my father and tell him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you; I am no longer worthy to be called your son. Please take me on as one of your hired servants.’” So he returned home and while he was still far down the road his father saw him and recognized him and was full of mercy. He excitedly ran out to meet him and hugged and kissed him. He told his servants, “Go and the best robe and sandals and a ring for his finger and clothe him. Go and prepare a banquet; we will have a feast and, for this my son who was dead is alive again — he was lost but now is found.” 遗产 糜烂 的 宴会 浪子回头 饥荒 starve in abundance fetch celebrate distant
Listening Practice---Blank-filling People thought Ethel Armstead was crazy to stand up to the young men dealing drugs outside her house. But Ethel had had enough. Summoning up her courage, she went out to talk to the gang. This is the story of what happened. Not on My Block Ethel Armstead liked the gray row house right off. It had an extra bedroom and a big backyard where her grandkids could play. The marble stoop would be a perfect spot to sit on summer evenings. But when Armstead arrived home from work that first night after moving in, she found tough-looking young men sitting on her front steps. “Excuse me,” she said, startled. “I live here.” The group of seven young men rose, staring at her with cold, hard eyes. Once inside, Armstead locked the door and out the window. She was surprised to see that the men had already reseated themselves on her steps. a bunch of reluctantly peered
In coming weeks, Armstead learned that her house, long vacant, was used by drug dealers, who hid their drugs under the front steps. As a steady stream of cars and foot traffic passed by, the dealers conducted business on the stoop. Addicts shot up in the path behind the house and urinated in the backyard. Armstead had no about the men who her front steps. Almost every night for the ten years she had lived in the tough Oliver neighborhood of East Baltimore, she lay in bed listening to the sound of gunshots as the drug wars. But this house, with dealers hanging out on her stoop, was the worst. Sometimes she called the police several times a day, begging them to disperse the dealers. But once the police car disappeared down the street, the dealers drifted back. As a 50-something mother of grown children, Armstead had not imagined fighting this battle. But it wasn’t the first time she’d risen to an unexpected challenge. Back in the mid-1990s, when her own daughter drugs and her young grandchildren faced foster care, Armstead got of the three boys and one girl. One night in September 2000, about a month after she moved into her new house, Armstead prayed to God. “I’m gonna talk to these guys tomorrow. Help me.” illusionsoccupied raged was addicted to custody
The next day, she confronted the leader of the group, a young man in jeans and a while T-shirt. Armstead’s insides were turning over, but she knew she couldn’t show her fear. “This is my space,” she said calmly and quietly, keeping her face a mask. “I shouldn’t have to say ‘Excuse me’ to get into my own house.” She told the young man that she didn’t want him and his friends dealing drugs in front of her grandkids anymore. They were to stay off her property, off the vacant property next door, off the corner. The man was silent. Armstead’s heartbeat rose into her throat. Then he nodded. The group left. But a few days later, they were back. Armstead repeated her request. She repeated it the next day. And the next. Then a funny thing happened. They began to listen. They moved down to the next block. When winter came, they cleared snow from her walk and checked in on her when she was ill. Before long, they took to calling her “Mom”. Her grandkids could play ball in the street now. Sometimes the young men played with them. And if one of the kids were talking back, someone would say, “Don’t you talk like that. That’s your grandma!”
Armstead kept “fussin’,” warning of the dangers of fast money. “You’re gonna get yourselves killed!” She told them. “Do something positive!” People told her she was crazy to talk to those thugs that way. Especially after another mom who had taken a stand was killed just five blocks away. Angela Dawson had her own battle against a different set of drug pushers — and lost. In a tragedy that made the national news, the Dawson house and Angela, her husband, Carnell, and five of their children died. A neighborhood man was charged. Armstead didn’t know Angela Dawson, but she knew her children. After the deadly fire, she was more — but she didn’t stop. And she didn’t just talk. She has been a driving force in the community organization BUILD (Baltimore United in Leadership Development). Together they drove drug dealers off a vacant lot and built a playground. They established an extended-day program at school to keep kids off the streets. They prompted the city and local churches to step up efforts to redevelop houses. Not long ago, Armstead ran into one of the men who used to hang out on her steps. “Hey, Mom!” he exploded, giving her a hug. He got a job, he told her, adding, “I want to thank you for all your fussin’.” Armstead is about the impact she’s had. She says simply, “It makes me feel good to know my message got through to at least one young man.” waged was set on fire cautious abandoned modest
