【国旗下讲话】第7周：做一个正直的人Be a Righteous Man
Dear teachers and students：
Hello, everyone! The topic of our speech today is “Be a Righteous Man”.
“Wealth and honor cannot be obscene, poverty and lowliness cannot be removed, and power cannot be subdued.” This is the urging of a generation of ancient philosophers on the world.”Worry about the world first, and be happy after it.” This is the motto of a generation of good officials to themselves.”Since ancient times, no one has died, leaving a loyal heart to reflect history.” It’s a choice between life and death for a generation of loyal officials.
Thus, such a person has a body of integrity, even if the thunderbolt without change of color; There is a cavity of pride, even if the mad sand and eyes are not confused; There is a gall, even if ten thousand arrows through the chest and will not move. Turbulent years, go and leave the liver and gallbladder two Kunlun, the majestic wind in the blood fire screaming;In the era of peace, wealth and honor are like floating clouds to me, and the vast and heroic spirit makes the world respect each other.
We have all read the famous Journey to the West, in which the Monkey King also has an upright character.
Sun Wukong was trapped under the Five Fingers Mountain for five hundred years because of his trouble. After being rescued by his master Tang Sanzang, he started a journey to the west. Sun Wukong is honest in his bones, despite the encounter of demons and ghosts, thorns in the way, he carried forward the integrity of character. His integrity ensured the safety of Tang Seng, and his integrity preached justice on earth.When the monster pretended to deceive the king, Sun Wukong could not bear to watch and wanted to expose the monster’s plot. When the “national Master” show off talent skills, performance beheading deathless, Sun Wukong conjured up a dog, the “national Master” head away, National master showed the prototype of the monster. Without Sun Wukong’s integrity, that country will continue to be controlled by monsters. The white Bone Essence changed into human form three times to deceive the naked eye of the implacable Tang monk.The eager-eyed Monkey King kept his integrity and tried to kill the White Bone Demon even when he was suffering from his master’s magic. Finally, the truth comes out and Tang Monk apologizes to Sun Wukong. Without Sun Wukong’s integrity, Tang Seng would face great danger.
A man of integrity, he will not differ, think one thing, say another; He’s not going to be duplicitous, saying one thing and doing another. I firmly believe that it is the absence of inner conflict that gives a man the extra energy and clarity of mind that inevitably leads him to success.
May you all have integrity and seek a better tomorrow. Stick to integrity, life is extraordinary, magnificent style.
