An iceberg is a great piece of ice floating in the sea. ‘Berg’ is the German word for ‘mountain.’ In the coldest parts of the earth, around the North and South Poles, land and sea are both covered by layers of ice, more than 300 meters deep at the centre.

Tongues of ice, called glaciers, stretch out into the open sea. The sea water melts the bottom parts of these glaciers, and then the top part moves into the water with a great noise. The great piece of ice sinks for a short time under the surface, and then it rises again, and floats away as a new iceberg. Some icebergs are many miles long, and travel for thousands of miles and several years before they finally melt. The part of an iceberg which can be seen above the water is only about one-ninth of the total size. The rest is hidden under the waves.

One of the world’s worst disasters at sea was in 1912 when the liner ‘Titanic’ hit an iceberg and sank on her first journey, killing hundreds of passengers.

The Chipmunk That Ran Away 

Once upon a time, there was a nervous little chipmunk. She was always afraid that something bad happened to her. 

One day, she heard a little noise. It was really only an apple that fell to the ground. But the little Chipmunk was afraid and said “The sky is falling in.” Then she ran away as fast as she could go. 

Soon she met an old brother Chipmunk, who asked, “Where are you running to, little Chipmunk?”  And the little Chipmunk answered, “The sky is falling in, and I am running away.” “The sky is falling in?” said the old brother Chipmunk. And he told the story to his brother chipmunk, until at last there were a hundred brother Chipmunks shouting, ”The sky is falling in.” Soon the larger animals heard what the Chipmunks were saying. The Deer, 127 Unit 8 - Long, Long Time Ago, There Was ... the Sheep, the Pig, the Camel, the Tiger, and the Elephant began to say, “The sky is falling in.” 

Then the wise Lion heard all the noise and wanted to know what was happening. He stopped all the animals and asked, “What are you saying?” The brother Chipmunks said, “Oh we heard it from that little Chipmunk!” And the Lion said, “Little Chipmunk, what made you say that the sky was falling in?” And the little Chipmunk said, “I saw it there near the tree.” 

“Well,” said the Lion, “Come with me and I will show you how something”. “Now get on my back.” The Lion took her on his back, and asked the animals to stay where they were until they returned. Then he showed the little Chipmunk that the apple had fallen to the ground. This made the noise that had made her afraid. The little Chipmunk said, “Oh, I see. The sky is not falling in.”

The Lion said, “Let’s go back and tell the other animals.” So they went back. At last all the animals knew that the sky was not falling in.

Being a Dwarf

When I was ten years old, I realized how short I was if I compared myself to other people. But I kept my observation to myself.

One day, I asked my mother why I was different. She told me about Achondroplasia or dwarfism. It affects about one in 25.000 people. And I have it.

My parents knew I was a dwarf when I was just 18 weeks old. They noticed my head was larger than normal babies and that I had a curved back.

As I grew older my condition became more noticeable. When I walked down the street, kids tugged on their parents’ shirts and everyone was like, “Look at her, look at her.” I used to get upset but then I just ignored people. If they started at me, I started back until they looked away.

At junior high school, things were fine because I had really good friends. At first, they had question so I explained my condition, but they understood. 

I know I can’t change it. I like who I am. I will always like who I am.

On Saturday morning at 09.30, I was walking down Sunda Street, looking for a record store. A man stopped me and asked me the way to the Hyatt Hotel. I wasn’t sure exactly where it was, but I walked with him to the end of Sunda Street. He was very friendly, and his face looked so familiar. Then I remembered where the Hyatt was and told him how to get there. He thanked me and tried to give me something. I thought it was money. I said ‘no’ at first, but he really wanted to me to have it, so I took it.  

I found the record store and listened to a few records. D’ Masive had a new record that was number two in the top twenty. I decided to buy it. I looked in may bag for my wallet and found a piece of paper the man gave me. It was a photo. I was so surprised! He was a singer in D’ Masive.
