All of China was arrayed in red with proud smiles on all faces, as the song “My Motherland and I” played throughout the streets and alleys.
Patriotic feelings brought tears to our eyes, and patriotic forms the backbone of the Chinese nation.
All these merge into a surging current that sings an ode to New China and inspires us to work harder in the new era, filling us with boundless energy.
Over the past year, I have visited many places.
Construction of Xiong’an New Area is progressing, Tianjin Port is booming, Beijing’s sub-center is thriving, grasslands in Inner Mongolia are splendid, the Hexi Corridor, after thousands of years, is teeming with new life. The winding Yellow River, where the sky is high and waters are wide, sometimes turbulent, sometimes calm; on both banks of the Huangpu River, there is plenty and prosperity, and ribbons of light shine in the night. Everything is flourishing across our motherland.
I traced the routes of China’s revolution to strengthen my original aspiration.
From Yudu in Jiangxi Province where the Red Army gathered for their Long March, to the Revolution Museum in Xinxian County in Henan Province, the former capital of the Hubei-Henan-Anhui revoluntionary base, from the monument to the West Route Army in Gaotai, Gansu Province, to the revoluntary memorial site in the Fragrant Hills in Beijing, all these places aroused many feelings and thoughts in my mind. Our original aspiration and mission are our inexhaustible source of motivation during our Long March of the new era.
As usual, no matter how busy I was, I spent time visiting people in the countryside.
People shared many of their innermost thoughts with me, and I always keep them in mind.
I have also received letters from villagers of the Dulong ethnic group in Gongshan, Yunnan Province; residents of Xiadang Township, Shouning County in Fujian Province; soldiers of the Wang Jie Squad; the graduate students of the Class of Champions at Beijing Sport University; and children and senior volunteers from Macao.
In my reply letters, I applauded the achievements they had made and sent may best wishes.
Over the past year, many people and their stories touched us deeply.
Zhang Fuqing has kept a low profile and stayed true to his original heart despite the great contributions he has made to the nation; Huang Wenxu dedicated her youth and life to poverty alleviation; 31 fire fighters sacrificed their lives in the line of duty in Muli, Sichuan Province; Du Fuguo sacrificed himself to protect his teammates; and China’s Women’s National Volleyball Team won the World Cup in an eleven-match winning streak. Nuemerous unsung heroes, with neither complaint nor regret, with dedication. Ordinary people living extraordinary lives.
