I said in this year’s New Year message that happiness is a struggle. Today, I would also like to say that struggle itself is a kind of happiness. Only a struggling life can be called a happy life. Struggle is hard, hardship and hardship, and jade is good. If there is no hardship, it is not a real struggle. We must be brave in purifying the soul, honing our will and firming our convictions in the arduous struggle. Struggle is a long-term struggle. The predecessors plant trees and the descendants enjoy the cold. The great cause requires several generations, dozens of generations, and dozens of generations to continue to struggle. Struggle is a tortuous one. “In order to have more sacrifices and dare to teach the sun and the moon to change to a new day,” there will be sacrifices to struggle. We must always carry forward the spirit of fearlessness and selfless dedication. Struggles are the most spiritually affluent people, and the ones who know the most happiness and enjoy the most happiness. As Marx said: “History recognizes those who work for the common goal and thus become noble. It is a great person; experience praises those who bring happiness to most people is the happiest person.”
The new era is the era of the struggler. We must persist in the people’s longing for a better life as our goal. We will continue to work tirelessly for the people, work hard with the people, and implement the spirit of struggle to carry out the great struggle, build great projects, advance great undertakings, and realize the great dream. Form a vivid situation of competing struggle and united struggle.
“Fanglin’s new leaves remind Chen Ye, the flow of water before the waves let the post wave.” In the 40 years of reform and opening up, we have taken a new road and a good road with the courage to dare to do the courage and self-innovation, and realized from ” The great leap from catching up with the times to leading the times. Today, we must not forget our original heart, remember our mission, continue to open up the road, meet the pioneering spirit of water bridges, open a new bureau in a great social revolution, and succumb to the great self-revolution, continue to write on our vast land. A new chapter in the history of the great struggle of more than 1.3 billion Chinese people!
