Good morning, dear teachers and classmates
A day's plan lies in the morning. With a gentle breeze and birds singing, now is a morning full of vigor and vitality. 74 years ago, people all over China and even the whole world are looking forward to the time in excitement. On September 2th, 1945, the surrender ceremony of Japan to the Allied Forces was held on the USS Missouri in the Gulf of Tokyo. Under the watchful eye of the representatives of nine landed countries, including China, Japan signed the surrender letter. This is the first time that China has won an all-round victory in the history of anti-aggression in more than a hundred years, and it has also made indelible contributions to the world war against fascism.
From the occupation of Northeast China in September 18th, the displacement of people in the three provinces, to the stubborn resistance of Lugouqiao, the war raged in the North China Plain. In this difficult historical moment, the Chinese people have not yielded, they resolutely rose up and bravely resisted. Listen, inspiring war songs are playing in China. Look, the revolutionary aspirants who are not afraid of sacrifice are sprinkling blood in our motherland. People of all nationalities, including compatriots of Hong Kong, Macao, Taiwan, overseas Chinese, fought hard and arduous battles with Japanese aggressors in exchange for today's victory 74 years ago. The War of Resistance Against Japan is a magnificent epic written by Chinese people with blood and tears and perseverance for 14 years.
Nowadays, the smoke of history has disappeared, and peace and development have become the theme of the new era. Although we grew up in a peaceful era, we still need to remember the history, the strength of our country and the unity of our nation, so that we can truly defend our country and speak loudly.
"When young people are prosperous, the country is prosperous; when young people are strong, the country is strong." The future of our motherland belongs to you. Let us remember the history together, look forward to the future, create the glory of our motherland and contribute our strength.
Dear teachers and students, good morning!
August 15th, 2019 is a touching and memorable day. Seventy-four years ago, our forefathers and martyrs exchanged their blood and lives for 73 years of precious victory in the War of Resistance Against Japan. On August 15th, 1945, Japan declared unconditional surrender. Our forefathers proved the military indomitability of the Chinese people through practical actions.
Years passed by in a hurry for 74 years. Smoke from the Yellow River has gone with the wind, and history seems to have gone away. However, for the Chinese nation, that is the eternal national martyrdom, the eternal struggle, and the eternal recollection.
That period of history left us not only with grief, endless tears and blood, the heroic memory of eternal aspirations and magnificent epics, but also with the desire for peace, the hope of never fighting again, the determination to strengthen and enrich the people and the wishes of good neighbors and friends. The War of Resistance Against Japan is remembered not only for its grief and tragedy, but also for its struggle, victory and dignity. We have experienced the humiliation of being beaten and backward, and we have proved the national strength of a city full of aspirations. The Chinese nation has also washed away a hundred years of humiliation, broken away from a hundred years of chains, won a glorious victory in the War of Resistance Against Japan, and won the heartfelt respect of the people of the world.
History has proved that all peace-loving countries and people have the ability to expel aggressors from their territory, to put an end to all forms of oppression and slavery, and to achieve peace and development through their efforts.
