Lei Feng spirit is a legacy | Updated: 2013-03-06 21:05

The world is exploring the motivation behind China maintaining such a long and fast development. Just take a look at how Lei Feng spirit goes deep into people's hearts and you will find the answer, says an article in People's Daily. Excerpt:

Lei Feng does not only belong to China. His passion and spirit go beyond state borders. March 5 is National Day of Learning from Lei Feng, a soldier famous for his generosity and readiness to help the others and who died in an accident in the 1960s.

Lei Feng never disappeared from the lives of common Chinese people. He is a modern symbol of China's traditional morality and ethics. Happiness comes from helping others.

Lei Feng is also a role model for Chinese society today as the government is trying to improve the social moral environment.

Some Western scholars interpret Lei Feng spirits as "seeing man as machines". This is not only a distortion of Lei Feng, but also blindness to the common values and morality of human beings.

All countries' development is based on people's dedication and commitment to their causes.

Lei Feng said life is limited but serving the people is limitless and if one person can put a limited life into limitlessly serving the people, his or her life will become limitless.

His spirit is in line with the principles of the Communist Party of China.

Serving the people wholeheartedly and putting the people's interests higher than any other interests is the key for the CPC to realize China's economic achievements and fast development.

Learning from Lei Feng has new meanings, which are larger than his life. Lei Feng is a historic legacy to motivate society and unite all Chinese people.
