The 110th anniversary of the day Uncle Ho left the nation to seek pathways for national salvation (June 5, 1911 – June 5, 2021)
President Ho Chi Minh's great journey
|At the Dragon House wharf, Ho Chi Minh city, Uncle Ho left the nation to seek pathways for national salvation|
Our country is wonderful, but there is no independence or freedom. The backward, corrupt feudal system and foreign colonialists have pushed the Vietnamese people into poverty and darkness. The uprising movement of patriotic scholars Hoang Hoa Tham, Phan Boi Chau, Phan Chu Chinh, without a revolutionary path, did not gain independence. So, on June 5, 1911, from the Dragon House wharf, patriotic young man Nguyen Tat Thanh left the nation to seek pathways for national salvation.
Uncle Ho's foresight on culture and independence
In President Ho Chi Minh’s vision, the West region with advanced scientific development can help realize his aspirations and ambitions, a strong country and wealthy people. So, he chose the main destination like France, always preaching about freedom, equality and charity.
He wants to discover and exploit human civilization, science and technology that have developed globally and what is behind it?
Over 20 years living and working in France, Russia and some European countries, he studied and absorbed the civilization meticulously and elaborately to apply it to the Vietnamese revolution later. For example, he used six years in France to explore, research, participate in activities, especially learning about administrative management, social management.
In 1923, Nguyen Ai Quoc went to Russia to participate in the activities of the Communist International Organization, thereby learn about the culture and development path of many European countries and even the United States. Uncle Ho highly appreciated the great achievements that the Bourgeois Revolution brought to humanity on freedom, democracy and culture. He was interested in slogans during the bourgeois revolutions in England, France, and America. He drew five lessons of the French bourgeois revolution in 1789. What Uncle Ho gained during those wandering years has excellent value in charting the way for Viet Nam after.
A patriot quietly looking for freedom, equality for the country
On January 28 1941, after 30 arduous years of searching for and saving the country, Uncle Ho returned to Viet Nam with Lenin's Thesis on national liberation and building socialism. Seven years later, on May 20, 1947, President Ho Chi Minh moved to a secret base at Khau Ty hill, Diem Mac commune, Dinh Hoa district, Thai Nguyen province to lead the long-term resistance war against the second French colonialists for nine years.
In the pain of the people and country, "While no one talked about King Le around Hoan Kiem Lake", there was a patriot quietly looking for freedom, equality for the country. In the end, Uncle Ho has found it, and we have been building a free life as he wanted. Celebrating the 110th anniversary of the day Uncle Ho left the nation to seek pathways for national salvation, we are grateful to him. We vow to implement Uncle Ho's teachings together well.
