 Peoples Forum: A Vivid New China History Course

History always gives people the power to draw wisdom and move on in some special years. This year is the 70th anniversary of the founding of New China, and a series of grand celebrations are held. Isnt it just a centralized education of patriotism? General secretary Xi Jinping pointed out: nearly 1 billion 400 million of the Chinese peoples hearts are unprecedentedly condensed, and patriotic enthusiasm is unprecedentedly high. It has strengthened our confidence and determination to exclude all difficulties and obstacles in taking the road of socialism with Chinese characteristics, running our own affairs well and basing ourselves on the forests of the world. In such special years and unforgettable moments, from prosperous cities to vast countryside, from coastal areas to inland frontiers, millions of people are looking back on 70 years, thinking about 70 years, paying tribute to 70 years and immersing themselves in a vivid new Chinese history lesson. Hundreds of millions of Chinese sons and daughters have jointly sung I love you China and gathered great strength to start afresh.

Over the past 70 years, we have deeply understood that only by forgetting the original can we open up the future. On the eve of the founding of New China, Comrade Mao Zedong proclaimed heroically that the indomitable efforts of the Chinese people will surely achieve their goals steadily. To shake off the hat of sick man of East Asia and poor and white, and become the worlds second largest economy, ushering in a great leap from standing up, getting rich to becoming strong... After 70 years of hard work, great changes have taken place in our country, and our people have written a touching epic of struggle. Today, there are the newest and most beautiful words and pictures everywhere in Shenzhou. Socialist China stands tall in the east of the world. No power can shake the status of our great motherland, and no power can block the advance of the Chinese people and the Chinese nation.

Over the past 70 years, we should especially bear in mind that faith, belief and confidence are essential. During the National Day, a foreign netizen sincerely sighed, Although I dont know Chinese, the camera tells me how happy and peace-loving the Chinese people are. In the past 70 years, Xiongguan Passage is really like iron. Without firm belief, rock-like belief and confidence in victory, how can the Chinese people create development achievements of astonishing the world? How can we harvest todays joy, peace and pride? Socialism with Chinese characteristics has entered a new era, and the Chinese nation has ushered in the best period of development in history. On the new Long March road, we will be able to overcome difficulties, smooth down difficulties and write a brand-new chapter by firmly believing in faith and confidence, maintaining a never-ending state of mind and a never-ending attitude of struggle.

After 70 years, we must work together and dream together. Seventy years of philosophy of time has profound enlightenment that with dreams, opportunities, struggles, all good things can be created. Practice is always the best tribute to dreams. On the journey to the great dream, only by promoting the spirit of solidarity and progress, not hypocrisy, not making unreasonable contributions, and always adhering to the Chinese road, carrying forward the spirit of China, and uniting the strength of China, can we take over the relay baton of history and run well in the hands of this baton. The new era is bound to be a promising one. Never idle, never stop, after a mountain and then climb a peak, across a ditch and then over a gully, we will surely create a new history.

All great achievements are the result of continuous struggle, and all great undertakings need to be promoted in the future. In the past 70 years, the peoples Republic has once again stood at a new historical starting point. In the logic of historical progress, in the trend of development of the times, and towards the goal of two hundred years, we will eventually create new and greater miracles.
