In July 2017, the Central Military Commission awarded the August 1 Medal for the first time. In that year, the winners of the August 1st Medal in Beijing were invited to attend the flower basket laying ceremony. Last year, the day before the flower basket ceremony, China awarded the Medal of the Republic and the title of national honor for the first time. The next day, representatives of the Medal of the Republic and the national honorary title were invited to the flower basket laying ceremony.

At the ceremony, novel coronavirus pneumonia was first seen in the whole country. They were the advanced individuals and advanced collective representatives in fighting against the new crown pneumonia in Beijing. 22 days ago, they were solemnly commended in the Great Hall of the people.
Representatives from all walks of life are the largest group to attend the ceremony every year. In previous years, the number of people attending the ceremony was about 3000. Last year witnessed the 70th anniversary of the founding of the peoples Republic of China. This year, due to the special background of normalized epidemic prevention and control, the number of representatives from all walks of life who attended the ceremony was reduced to about 1800.

Why 2014? Before 2014, the ceremony of laying flower baskets at the monument to the peoples heroes was generally arranged on October 1, the national day. In February 2014, China established September 3 as the anniversary of the victory of the Chinese peoples war of resistance against Japan by legislation, and in August of that year, it set September 30 as the martyrs day. During the legislative year, general secretary Xi Jinping attended the flower basket ceremony to the martyrs and the peoples Heroes on the two days respectively.

September 3 this year marks the 75th anniversary of the victory of the Anti Japanese war. Six years later, the general secretary came to Lugou bridge again to attend the flower basket ceremony for the martyrs of the Anti Japanese war. At the symposium held on the same day, the general secretary deeply remembered the heroes of the Anti Japanese War and demanded to carry forward the great spirit of the war.

From 9.3 to 9.30, from honoring the heroes of the Anti Japanese War, to paying tribute to all the heroes who sacrificed their lives for the cause of Chinese peoples Liberation and the construction of the peoples Republic of China, from inheriting the great spirit of Anti Japanese War to inheriting the pedigree of Chinese national spirit including the great spirit of Anti Japanese war. This is the best memorial and the best consolation.
Heroes can be seen everywhere in the year of epidemic
This year, the ceremony of presenting flower baskets to the peoples heroes was held in the special context of the year of war epidemic. Facing novel coronavirus pneumonia this year, as general secretary Xi Jinping said, in a critical moment, heroes everywhere! The anti epidemic warriors on all fronts are fearless in the face of danger, treat death as if they were returning home, go to their mission with their lives, and take great care of all living beings.

The heroic spirit of heaven and earth is still awe inspiring for thousands of years. At the Qingming Festival of gengzi, the state mourned the hero with the highest memorial ceremony, and the people saw off the hero with the deepest remembrance. At the two sessions of the NPC and CPPCC, all participants stood in silence and expressed their deep sorrow to the martyrs and compatriots who died in the new epidemic. The peoples heroes that we cherish in memory of this flower basket ceremony also include these honorable anti epidemic martyrs.
There was silence at the ceremony.
Only when the sea flows, can we show the true character of a hero. From the anti epidemic commendation meeting on September 8 to the flower basket laying ceremony on September 30, China paid tribute to the anti epidemic heroes in the name of the country, and drew forward strength from the great anti epidemic spirit. This is the precious wealth given to us by the anti epidemic struggle.
Standing at the intersection of history, the people are real heroes
The year 2020 is the end of a decisive victory in an all-round well-off society and a decisive battle to shake off poverty. It is also a year of historical convergence to achieve the two centenary goals. Such space-time coordinates always bring people a lot of thinking.

The commemorative medal for the 70th anniversary of the victory of the Chinese peoples war of resistance against Japan is composed of five elements: the relief of the Anti Japanese soldiers, the pagoda mountain of Yanan, the Yellow River, olive branches and light.
At the ceremony of the National Medal and the national honorary designation a year ago, Xi Jinping made such an assertion: heroic models have proved again by deeds that greatness comes from commonness and ordinary greatness. At the anti epidemic commendation meeting held on September 8 this year, the general secretary said with deep feeling: there are no heroes from the sky, only ordinary people who stand up.
Zhang Boli, winner of the national honorary title of peoples hero, recently delivered a keynote speech at Tianjin University of traditional Chinese medicine.
Chinas anti epidemic campaign has made the concept of people first more and more distinct. Xi Jinping emphasized many times that we must uphold the supremacy of the people, firmly rely on the people, constantly benefit the people and firmly root the people. Not long ago, when he presided over a forum of grass-roots representatives in Changsha, Hunan Province, the general secretary sincerely sighed: the victory of the party and the national cause is the victory of the people! The people are real heroes
On February 24 this year, grid members and volunteers of a community in Wuhan packed food packages in bags and delivered them to residents by bus.
On September 30, 71 years ago, the foundation of the monument to the peoples heroes was laid in Tiananmen Square. On this day, 71 years later, people attending the flower basket ceremony paid deep respect to the largest monument in Chinas history, which triggered many thoughts about the people, heroes and history.
The best memorial to history is to create a new history. How is history created? Who is the hero in the world? The general secretary has already replied: the people are the creators of history, and the people are the real heroes.
