  Reading through the full text of the speech with more than 4,000 words, the word "revival" appeared 25 times.

  This year marks the 110th anniversary of the Revolution of 1911 and the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China.

At this important moment, General Secretary Xi Jinping looks back on history, analyzes reality, and enlightens the future from the perspective of national rejuvenation, and gathers majestic forces for the comprehensive construction of a modern socialist country and the realization of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.

From "Revitalizing China" to "National Rejuvenation"

  In his speech, General Secretary Xi Jinping deeply analyzed the social and historical background and significant historical significance of the 1911 Revolution from the broad perspective of modern Chinese history.

  After the Opium War in 1840, China gradually became a semi-colonial and semi-feudal society, and the Chinese people and the Chinese nation suffered unprecedented calamities.

The heroic Chinese people struggled and searched again and again on the road to save the nation, and never succumbed.

"Since then, realizing the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation has become the greatest dream of the Chinese nation."

  Facing the deep crisis of "strong neighbors, watching the eagles", Mr. Sun Yat-sen screamed "to save the people from the water and fire, and to help the mansions," and take the lead in calling for "rejuvenating China".

Under the leadership and influence of Mr. Sun Yat-sen, countless revolutionary patriots will "put on their own shoulders the responsibility of revitalizing China."

  From "Revitalizing China" to "Realizing the Great Rejuvenation of the Chinese Nation", the national dreams and historical themes have been consistent, and generations of people with lofty ideals and benevolent people continue to seek and strive unremittingly.

  For one hundred years, the Chinese Communist Party has united and led all the struggles, all sacrifices, and all creations of the Chinese people, which boil down to one theme: realizing the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.

  Looking back a hundred years, it is the Communist Party of China who, as "Mr. Sun Yat-sen's most steadfast supporter, most loyal collaborator, and most loyal successor", made Dr. Sun Yat-sen's and revolutionary pioneer's long-cherished wish to "rejuvenate China" fulfilled Reality.

  In his speech, the general secretary mentioned the book "Strategies for the Founding of the Country" written by Mr. Sun Yat-sen between 1917 and 1919.

The book proposes to build about 160,000 kilometers of railways to connect China's coastal, inland, and border areas; build 1.6 million kilometers of roads to form a nationwide road network, and so on.

  Today, the blueprint for modernization planned by Mr. Sun Yat-sen in the past has already been over-realized for socialist China.

  On November 11, 5 years ago, at the meeting to commemorate the 150th anniversary of Mr. Sun Yat-sen’s birth, General Secretary Xi Jinping said: “Today, we can comfort Mr. Sun Yat-sen that we are closer to the goal of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation than at any time in history. , More confident and capable of achieving this goal than at any time in history."

  Five years later, on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China, a well-off society has been established in all aspects of China.

General Secretary Xi Jinping solemnly declared: "The great dream that the Chinese people have dreamed of and struggled for in modern times has been or is becoming a reality. The Chinese nation has ushered in a great leap from standing up, getting rich to becoming strong, and the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation has entered an incredible period. The historical process of reversal!"

Historical Enlightenment Facing National Rejuvenation

  Seek experience from history, seek laws from history, and explore the future from history.

In his speech, General Secretary Xi Jinping pointed out five major historical enlightenments from the 110 years of the Revolution of 1911.

  In the context of the overall situation of the great rejuvenation strategy of the Chinese nation and the great changes in the world unseen in a century, these five enlightenments profoundly answer the five major questions of national rejuvenation.

  Among them, the first is to uphold and strengthen the party's overall leadership.

  If the gunshots at the head of Wuchang opened the curtain of the modern national democratic revolution in the full sense of China and opened the floodgates of China's progressive trend, then the birth of the Communist Party of China has lightened the beacon of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.

  Why can we succeed?

How can we continue to succeed?

  General Secretary Xi Jinping raised and answered this question in his important speech on July 1st: “Without the Communist Party of China, there would be no New China, and there would be no great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.” At the meeting to commemorate the 110th anniversary of the Revolution of 1911, the general secretary This sentence was reiterated again.

This is the most important historical conclusion and the most precious successful experience.

  The direction determines the road, and the road determines destiny.

To realize the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation, the road is the most fundamental issue.

  Looking back over a century, the new democratic revolution, socialist revolution, and reform and opening up led by the Communist Party of China have pushed the Chinese nation to a great leap from standing up, getting rich to becoming strong, and ushering in a bright prospect for national rejuvenation.

  History has proven and will continue to prove that socialism with Chinese characteristics is the only correct way to achieve the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation. We must keep our will and the path unchanged, and firmly control the destiny of China's development and progress in our own hands.

The Taiwan issue will be resolved with the national rejuvenation

  Through the live TV screen, we saw such a scene in the Great Hall of the People——

  When General Secretary Xi Jinping said in a firm tone: The Chinese nation has a glorious tradition of opposing division and maintaining unity.

The "Taiwan independence" split is the biggest obstacle to the reunification of the motherland and a serious hidden danger to national rejuvenation.

Those who forget their ancestors, betray the motherland, or split the country have never ended well, and they will be spurned by the people and judged by history!

  A long period of enthusiastic applause erupted at the scene, which represented the determination and will of all Chinese people.

  Back then, Sun Yat-sen sighed while watching the Qiantang River tide in Haining, Zhejiang: "The trend of the world is mighty, if you follow it, you will prosper, and if you go against it, you will perish."

  Practice has proved that if you go against the trend, you will fail.

Today, the General Secretary quoted Mr. Sun Yat-sen's words in his speech and forcefully declared: "The historical task of the complete reunification of the motherland must be achieved, and it will definitely be achieved!"

  Looking back at the history of the struggle of the Chinese nation and the course of cross-strait relations over the past century, Taiwan’s fate has always been closely related to the fate of the motherland and is inseparable from the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.

  In January 2019, General Secretary Xi Jinping emphasized at the 40th anniversary of the publication of "A Letter to Compatriots in Taiwan" that "the historical trend of a strong country, national rejuvenation, and cross-strait reunification is unstoppable by anyone or any force."

  Although there will be twists and turns in the historical process, it will never stand still.

As the general secretary pointed out, the Taiwan issue was caused by the weak and chaotic nation, and it will surely be resolved with the national rejuvenation.

  Not long ago, General Secretary Xi Jinping sent Zhu Lilun to congratulate him on his election as the chairman of the Chinese Kuomintang and expressed his hope that the two parties will stand tall, uphold a common political foundation, uphold national justice, work together, and work for the well-being of compatriots, peace in the Taiwan Strait, and the country. Unify and seek for national rejuvenation.

  "'Unification' is the hope of all Chinese citizens. If it is possible to unify, the people of the whole country will enjoy the blessings; if there is no unification, they will suffer." Mr. Sun Yat-sen's words back then still have profound enlightening significance.

  Realizing the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation is the common glory of all Chinese sons and daughters, and it is also the common mission of all Chinese sons and daughters.

Learning experience and wisdom from history, all Chinese people at home and abroad will unite more closely, and the Chinese nation will move towards a great rejuvenation at an unstoppable pace.
