Life of Populus Euphratica
Populus euphratica is a kind of tree with strong vitality. It survives in extreme weather like sandstorm, drought, freezing winter and in sultry summer, and stick to the mission to prevent desertification. When standing in the desert, I marveled at tenacity of populus euphratica struggling in an extremely harsh environment, which well deserves the praise. The life span of a populus euphratica is one thousand years. When its life comes to an end, it stands another 1000 years and takes another 1000 to integrate to the land. Life is indomitable and eternal for populus euphratica, and its faith remains unchanged. The Populus euphratica fighting against life is like a group of heroes fighting for the country. The Populus euphratica contributes everything they have, not asking for anything. This is the spirit of our Chinese nation. This year is the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China; I praise the indomitable vitality of Populus euphratica and the great party and heroic people from the heart!
