江西省萍乡市芦溪县芦溪中学 高二（25）班 杨杰璇
October 1st is the anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China in 1949， and it is celebrated as the National Holiday all over our country. This year， 2019， marks the 70th anniversary of the founding of our motherland. All the nation celebrated the festival. Colorful neon lights and red flags were hung here and there during The National Day. Thousands of people and soldiers gathered at Tiananmen Square for a grand army parade and celebration procession.
October 1， 1949， Chairman Mao stood on Tiananmen Gate， solemnly announced to the world： The People’s Republic of China was founded. Since then， we erased the dark shadows and ushered in the brilliant glory. In 1997 Hong Kong returned to the motherland. In 2003 China joined the WTO. In 2005 China successfully launched its manned space flight Shenzhou VI. In 2008 China successfully hosted its first Olympics in Beijing…Today， our country is showing a rising China to the whole world.
Along with many ups and downs， it’s been 70 years of our motherland. As the generation born after 2000， we cannot experience the past of our motherland， but we must work hard for the future of our country. We should do our best to love ourselves， our parents， and our motherland. At any time， regardless of where we are， do remember： I am Chinese. I am proud of China. The motherland is always in my heart！
