On September 14th, General Secretary Xi Jinping visited Suide County, Yulin City. The four inspection points of the day all focused on one theme-inheritance. Since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, Xi Jinping has visited Shaanxi three times. In each itinerary, inheritance is a clear main line. In Suide, what meaningful places did the general secretary see and hope to pass on? Shaanxi is not only one of the important birthplaces of the Chinese nation and Chinese civilization, but also has written a glorious chapter in the history of the Chinese revolution. During the Anti-Japanese War, Suide was the "north gate" of the Shaanxi-Gansu-Ningxia Border Region, and its population accounted for about 1/3 of the entire border area. In January 1941, the Suide Prefectural Committee of the Communist Party of China became the first prefectural committee organization in the Shaanxi-Gansu-Ningxia Border Region. At that time, it was stationed in the Jiuzhen View, which was built during the Jiajing period of the Ming Dynasty. Under the leadership of the Suide District Committee, the Suide Division developed into a model division of the Shaanxi-Gansu-Ningxia Border Region. At the former site of the Suide Committee, there is a 2-million-high exhibition stand that is particularly eye-catching, with Mao Zedong's inscription-"Standing on the side of the most working people". Suide Prefectural Committee has jurisdiction over 5 counties, Suide, Mizhi, Jiaxian, Wubao, and Qingjian. In the autumn of 1947, during his transfer to Northern Shaanxi, Mao Zedong was invited to write these 13 characters to the Jiaxian County Party Committee. This is a clear expression of the Chinese Communist Party's position on the people. Closely linked with the masses of the people is one of the three major styles of our party summarized in the Seventh National Congress of the Party. March 1 this year President Xi Jinping at the Party School of the CPC Central Committee (National School of Administration) in young and middle-aged cadres training kai ban shi, regardless of past, present or future, the Party's fine tradition and style are inspires us to take the bull by the horns, the precious spiritual wealth of advancing bravely. It is the deep meaning of the general secretary to investigate the former site of the revolution. 6 years ago to Shaanxi during his inspection tour, he stressed that the party's construction must adhere to the inheritance and innovation, integrated the conditions of the time and carry forward the Party's fine tradition and style. The glorious land of Suide not only gave birth to the first prefectural committee organization in the Shaanxi-Gansu-Ningxia Border Region, but also the earliest CCP organization in northern Shaanxi. This is the CCP Suide (Fourth Division) party organization founded by revolutionary pioneer Li Zizhou at the Shaanxi Provincial Fourth Normal School in 1924. Today, Suide Experimental Middle School has been established on the former site of the school. On the morning of the 14th, Xi Jinping walked into the school to conduct research on promoting the all-round development and healthy growth of students. In 1923, Shaanxi Provincial Fourth Normal School was founded (later renamed Suide Normal School). In the second year, Li Zizhou, a member of the Communist Party and graduated from Peking University, became the president. After Li Zizhou took office, he went to Beijing to report the situation to Li Dazhao, and founded the CCP Suide caucus organization in the fourth division, and the school became the source of the Northwest Revolution. Li Zizhou put forward the school motto of "Don't forget to save the country when reading, save the country, don't forget to read", and opened courses such as "Marx's Historical Materialism"; Determined "Develop young people's body and mind, cultivate positive morality, pay attention to science education and create excellent teachers, and organize activities such as reading meetings, current affairs reports, and art exercises. It inherits the Suide Experimental Middle School, which inherits the old site of Suide Normal School, and also inherits the educational concept of all-round development and the spiritual blood of patriotism for the people. The school creates a brand of characteristic education, and sets up more than 20 art clubs such as calligraphy, painting, music, martial arts, and paper-cutting to cultivate students' comprehensive quality. "Who to train is the primary issue of education." From Suide Normal School to Suide Experimental Middle School, the consistent concept of running a school gives a clear answer. Our country is a major world cultural and natural heritage country. Last month, General Secretary Xi Jinping pointed out during an inspection in Chengde, Hebei that it is necessary to protect, inherit, and make good use of the excellent traditional Chinese culture, and tap its rich connotation, so as to better strengthen cultural self-confidence and unite the national spirit. General secretary July this year to di 44 session of the World Heritage Committee sent a congratulatory letter also stressed that protection, inheritance, make good use of these valuable wealth, is our common responsibility, it is an inevitable requirement for the continuation of human civilization and the sustainable development of the world. From such a high point of view, General Secretary Xi Jinping's itinerary on that day has special significance-to investigate the intangible cultural heritage exhibition hall in Suide County. Suide County Intangible Heritage Exhibition Hall is composed of four parts: showroom, exhibition hall, Learning Institute, and theater, covering Yangko, Suona, stone carving, paper-cutting, willow weaving, clay sculpture and other contents. Among them, the Northern Shaanxi Yangko, Suimi Suona, and Suide Stone Carving are national intangible cultural heritage. Last October in Guangdong Chaozhou effects of traditional art heritage, Xi Jinping stressed that to the intangible cultural heritage protection and inheritance, and actively cultivate inheritors to intangible cultural heritage bloom more loveliness. Just last month, the Central Office and the State Council issued the "Opinions on Further Strengthening the Protection of Intangible Cultural Heritage", which specifically pointed out that "the representative inheritor system must be improved". Let young people fall in love with intangible cultural heritage and solve this problem, and the cultural roots will continue to live. The 70-year-old Hou Zhirong and his wife have an enviable big family, a "family portrait", and there are 22 people. The old couple to more than 20 acres of land circulation out own planting Panicum miliaceum L-and-potatoes guy, in just the last year there are 20,000 billion yuan. In recent years, Haojiaqiao Village has established a village collective economic Joint Stock cooperative, forming an industrial system integrating modern agriculture, photovoltaic power generation, and rural tourism, realizing multi-channel income increase. Supported by the industry of enriching the people, the village has also built a whole village service system covering primary schools, kindergartens, mutual aid happiness homes, village service centers, and village clinics. February this year, hao jia Qiao Cun, won the "national poverty alleviation model" honor. The title of "model" of Haojiaqiao Village is also inherited. As early as the Anti-Japanese War, under the leadership of Liu Yuhou, a member of the Communist Party, Hao Jiaqiao not only improved the living standards of the villagers through intensive cultivation, improvement of land conditions, and selection of excellent varieties, it also supported the production and construction of the border area and became a model village in the Shaanxi-Gansu-Ningxia Border Region. "The village learns from Haojiaqiao, and everyone learns Liu Yuhou." Liu Yuhou attended the Labor hero meeting held in Yan'an twice and was awarded a Labor hero in the border area. Every time he visits Shaanxi, General Secretary Xi Jinping will mention the Yan'an spirit. He said that the Yan'an spirit has cultivated generations of Chinese Communists and is the precious spiritual wealth of our party. We can never forget where we came from, and always draw wisdom and strength from the history of the revolution.
