From July 6th to 12th, the school held a special class of party education for leading cadres called “Remaining true to our original aspiration and keeping our mission firmly in mind” in the revolutionary holy land Jinggangshan.
In the on-site teaching, the cadres felt the original aspiration of the revolutionary ancestors for establishing the base with concerted efforts all the time, and pursued the starting point of the Chinese revolution. From Dajing Village to Sanwan Village, from Maoping Bajiao Building to the site of the former enemy committee of Ciping, from Longjiang Academy to Huangyangjie… Although all sites have gone through ups and downs, they are still like the guiding star that is embedded in the sky, always guiding the direction for the future generations and shining with the glory of history. The core of the Jinggangshan spirit is courage and bravery. It is to think about what the predecessors did not think. It is to seek truth from facts to find a new path with Chinese characteristics! Standing in the steep and majestic Huangyangjie guarding pass with rolling clouds, the students felt that the narrow meandering footpath where Mao Zedong, Zhu De and the Red Army picked up the grain and went up the mountain before seemed to be much steeper. It reminded them the cornerstone of the Jinggangshan spirit, which is like the red rice and pumpkins that made predecessors quite content even in adversity. It is practice in person to share weal and woe, it is starting from scratch, and it is hard work to overcome various difficulties!
Traveling thousands of miles but remaining true to the original aspiration. "The most valuable asset left to us during the Jinggangshan period is the Jinggangshan spirit that spans time and space." As the successor of the Chinese revolution, the inheritor of the red gene, and the backbone of the Republic sports cause, the cadres said that the BSUer will integrate the Jinggangshan spirit into blood and soul. Guided by General Secretary Xi Jinping’s request of “remaining true to our original aspiration and keeping our mission firmly in mind”, with the reply of “Always Striving to Fulfill Our Mission” as the stimulation, we are motivated to face the future and challenge, shoulder the burden of the times, and dock the national strategies of education power, sports power, and health China, to make the Jinggangshan spirit, which aims to insistence on the pursuit of ideals, seeking truth from facts to find a new way, overcoming difficulties with arduous struggles , and relying on the masses to seek victory, radiates the light of BSU!
