Dear teachers and students, good morning!
Toady the topic of my speech is Gathering the Power of Youth and Carrying forward Patriotism
Youth is a gorgeous scenery, a string of beating notes.Youth is restless, green, but youth is enthusiastic and vivid. The great Chinese poet Aiqing once said," Why do I always have tears in my eyes? It’s because I love this land so much.” Yes, we also love this land and it is the feritile soil of this land that breeds our vigorous life. So we never regret to devote our youth to this affectionate land.
Patriotism has always been the purest,noblest and most sacred sentiment of the Chinese people for thousand of years. It is the core content of the spirit of Chinese nation. This national spirit is the inexhaustible spiritual driving force and traditional virtue of the Chinese nation. It is a great force driving forward Chinese society, a common spiritual pillar for all the people of all ethnic groups, and a glorious banner inspiring all Chinese people to unite and strive for national development and prosperity.
Patriotism has distinct characteristic of the times: at the critical moment of our national crisis, patriotism was manifested as the heroic spirit of sticking to the motherland and fighting to the end, and the unyielding national integrity. Countless communists sacrificed their lives for the interests of the country and the people. Many communists and intellectuals wrote their love for our motherland with blood and sweat. They wrote their loyalty to our motherland and the people with youth and struggle. Their patriotism is moving!
Perhaps, because we are young, we are still immature; perhaps, because we are young, we are not mature enough. But it is also because we are young that we are aggressive in the face of reform, resilient in the face of difficulties, and energetic in the face of learning. We are serious but not perfunctory, practical but not frivolous, real but not hypocritical and we have the spirit of devotion with no demand from others. We will never shrink from the challenges of time; we will never shrink from the challenges of our academic work. We are young, and we are full of passion and magical ideas, so we will turn the vitality of our youth into creative inspiration to feel the pulse of the times, to reflect the characteristic of this new era.
Let us make each of the footprints vivid with our youth and smile. In spring, we will strive forward with no hesitation nor misgivings! We will be a bolt of lighting as long as we work together; we will be a wall of fire as long as we work together; we will be the whole sky and we will be a round of golden sun as long as we work together! The sun, is the power of youth!
