    西元 1889 年,一位富裕的年輕女性,名叫 Jane‧Addams,搬進了一幢位於伊利諾州芝加哥市的美麗、高雅的房屋。

  • But instead of moving into a lovely, elegant neighborhood, she picked a house that was smack in the middle of one of the filthiest, poorest parts of town.

    但她不是搬進有著美好、優雅鄰居的街區,她選擇了位於城鎮中最骯髒、最貧窮地區中的房屋。

  • Why would a wealthy young woman do this when she could have lived anywhere?
