As long as I live I shall remember walking along an empty corridor and suddenly hearing, from behind a closed door, a scream of pain and horror such as I have never heard since.
只要我还活着,我就会记得当我走在一条空空的长廊时,我突然听到,从一扇紧闭房门之后,一声恐怖的痛苦的尖叫传来,那是我从未听到过的。
The door opened, and the researcher poked out her head and told me to run and make a hot drink for the young man sitting with her.
那扇门开了,调查员伸出头,让我去给坐在她边上的年轻人调一杯热饮。
 She had just given him the news that in retaliation for his own outspokenness against his country's regime, his mother had been seized and executed.
她刚刚告知了他出于对他出言反抗国家政权的言论的报复,她的母亲已经被捕并处决了。
Every day of my working week in my early 20s I was reminded how incredibly fortunate I was, to live in a country with a democratically elected government, where legal representation and a public trial were the rights of everyone.
在我20多岁工作那段时期的每一天里,我都在提醒自己是多么难以置信地幸运去生活在一个民主选举出政府的国家,在那里每个人都有权依法申述和公开审判。
Every day, I saw more evidence about the evils humankind will inflict on their fellow humans, to gain or maintain power.
每天,我看到了越来越多关于邪恶的人类为了获得或者巩固政权而对他们的同胞们所做出的各种恶行的证据。
 I began to have nightmares, literal nightmares, about some of the things I saw, heard and read.
我开始做噩梦,就是字面意义上的噩梦,关于那些我看到、听到和读到的东西。
And yet I also learned more about human goodness at Amnesty International than I had ever known before.
但是也因此我了解到了更多人们的善良在Amnesty International,那将远远大于从前。
Amnesty mobilizes thousands of people who have never been tortured or imprisoned for their beliefs to act on behalf of those who have. 
Amnesty动员成千上万没有因为他们的信仰而被虐待或是监禁的人们代表那些遭受此类不幸的人们去行动。
The power of human empathy, leading to collective action, saves lives, and frees prisoners. 
人类的同情心引发了集体行动,拯救了生命,同时也释放了犯人。
Ordinary people, whose personal well-being and security are assured, join together in huge numbers to save people they do not know, and will never meet. 
个人幸福和安全都已经得到了确保的普通人们大量地聚集在一起去拯救那些他们并不认识甚至可能永远不会见面的人们。
