Thought for Today:

Every time a child says, I don't believe in fairies, there is a fairy somewhere that falls down dead.
每当有一个孩子说:我不相信仙女的存在。在某处就会有一个仙女坠落并死去。

Today's Highlight in History:

1904: James Barrie's play Peter Pan premiered in London on December 27. The story is about a boy who lives in Neverland, better known as Never-Never Land, a country where no child ever grows up. Peter brings the three children of the Darling family from London to Never-Never Land; they eventually decide not to stay, but Wendy, the eldest, promises to return every spring. The most apparent thematic thread in the story concerns growing up (or not), with the character of Peter wanting to remain a child forever in order to avoid the responsibilities of adulthood. "Peter Pan syndrome" has become a psychiatric term used to describe an adult who is afraid of commitment and/or refuses to act his age.
1904年12月27日,詹姆斯·巴里写的《彼得·潘》在伦敦举行首映。故事讲述了小男孩彼得住在名叫梦幻岛的地方,在那里小孩永远都不会长大。彼得从伦敦达林家中带来三个小孩,最终他们决定离开这里。但是最大的文迪答应每年春天回来一次。故事的主线是关于到底要不要长大。主角彼得为了逃避大人要承担的责任而拒绝长大。“彼得·潘综合症”一词便成为精神病专用词来形容惧怕承担责任或者拒绝表现得象个大人的成年人。

1945: The World Bank is created with the signing of an agreement by 28 nations on December 27. It is an international organization dedicated to providing financing, advice and research to developing nations to aid their economic advancement.
1945年12月27日,28个国家签署了协议后成立了世界银行。世界银行是一家致力于为发展中国家提供经济、建议、研究,帮助发展中国家发展经济的国际组织。
