Comrade Xi Jinping pointed out in an important speech at the awarding ceremony of the National Medal of Honor and National Honor: "Adhering to heroes will produce heroes, and fighting for heroes will lead to heroes." Heroes are the benchmark of the times and the most shining coordinates of the nation. The Chinese nation is a nation that advocates heroes, achieves heroes, and produces heroes. In the 70 years since the founding of New China, under the strong leadership of our party, the people of all ethnic groups throughout the country have worked hard and worked hard to achieve great achievements that have caught the eye of the world. In this great historical process, a large number of heroes have emerged. , Perseverance, Plain and distinctive character has made a significant contribution to the development of the cause of the party and the country. In the new era, if we want to achieve the goal of "two hundred years" and realize the Chinese dream of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation, we need to worship heroes and fight for heroes. Magnificent triumph of the People's Republic.
Advocating heroes. The Chinese people have been advocating heroes and striving to become heroes since ancient times. The poems such as "Life is a hero, and death is a ghost", "Who has not died since ancient times, and his heart is taken for granted" are all vivid expressions of the Chinese people advocating heroes and striving to be heroes. Advocating heroes is because hero models have made great contributions to the development of the country and nation, made great contributions, and deserve the respect of the whole society. Today, we are closer, more confident and capable of achieving the goals of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation than at any time in history. However, the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation can never be achieved with ease and by playing gongs and drums. There are still a variety of risks and challenges on the way forward. We must carry out a great struggle with many new historical features. The new era calls for more Multiple hero models. Only by advocating heroes can more people learn heroes, strive to be heroes, and work tirelessly for the great cause of national rejuvenation.
Defend the hero. Hero models are the backbone of the nation, and the spiritual character embodied in them is a vivid portrayal of the spirit of the Chinese nation. Therefore, defending heroes is defending the history of the Chinese nation and the spiritual homeland of the Chinese nation. In real life, some people deliberately discredit our heroes, distort our glorious history, and cause us to be highly alert. The Law of the People's Republic of China on the Protection of Heroes and Martyrs, which came into effect on May 1, 2018, clarified the responsibilities and obligations of defending heroes in legal form, and provided us with a strong legal guarantee for defending heroes. The entire society must firmly establish the consciousness of defending heroes, fight resolutely against malicious acts of fabricating history, defaming and degrading heroic models, and resolutely safeguard the reputation and image of heroic models.
Learn heroes. The loyalty, persistence, and simple and clear character displayed by the hero model vividly reflect the spirit of the Chinese nation and the core values of socialism. It is an example for the whole society to learn. We must learn from heroic models, set them as benchmarks, and draw strength from them. To learn the hero model, we must first learn the deeds of the hero model, and constantly strengthen the emotional and value recognition of the hero model. On this basis, we must pay attention to practice, adhere to the unity of knowledge and action, draw strength from hero models, use hero models as examples in practical work, and continuously contribute wisdom and strength to the development of the cause of the party and the country with practical actions. Some people find it very difficult to learn heroes and fight for heroes, but this is not the case. Heroic models have repeatedly proven that greatness comes from ordinaryness, and ordinaryness makes greatness. As long as there are firm ideals and convictions, unremitting struggle spirit, and do every ordinary thing down to earth, all ordinary people can get an extraordinary life and all ordinary work can create extraordinary achievements.
Caring for heroes. Caring for heroes is an inevitable requirement for advocating heroes. Although hero models are selflessly dedicated and do n’t ask for returns, we ca n’t take the hero models ’sacrifice and dedication as a matter of course, but give them the honor and reward they deserve, so that the most respectable people get the care they deserve , Must not let the hero model bleed and shed tears. Comrade Xi Jinping emphasized that "Party committees and governments at all levels need to care about, care for, and care about heroic models, and promote the whole society to respect and learn from heroes." For the heroes and martyrs who have sacrificed for the country and the people, we must always remember them and give them great honor and admiration. While caring about the hero model himself, we also need to care about the hero model family. Hero models usually "stay home and take care of everyone", are concerned about the country and the nation, and serve the people wholeheartedly. We have to take their family members to heart, care psychologically, be considerate in life, and care about work.
