What Should Be Bequeathed to Posterity

An out-of-the-way mountain village situated far away from the township of Sinphyong County boasts a forest of pine-nut trees. It is the fruition of the unselfish patriotic devotion of a veteran member of the Workers’ Party of Korea to posterity.

Her name is Jang Pok Sun, a resident in Tongmun-dong 2, Taedonggang District, Pyongyang. She was born in Taeji-ri, Sinphyong County.

She joined the Korean People’s Army at the age of 17 after her graduation from a middle school. After her discharge from military service she faithfully worked as a labor innovator, a skilled worker, a workteam leader and a cell secretary of the WPK.

She thought of her future work a lot when she became a pensioner.

Several days after she visited her hometown she left long ago.

She took a bird’s eye view of it on a hill with emotion. When her eyes rested on its dear mountains her face shadowed with pity because they were almost denuded of trees. They had been thickly wooded when she left home in her girlhood.

She made up her mind to reforest the mountains to remain a conscientious patriot not only to her children but also to the future generations of her hometown.

Despite her old age, for many years she had since shuttled quite a distance between Pyongyang and Sinphyong County and between the county and the mountains of Taeji-ri. Whenever she went to Taeji-ri she carried young pine-nut trees to its mountains on her back and planted them there. They total up to tens of thousands.

All the inhabitants of Sinphyong County know her.

When she calls at the hometown with young pine-nut trees all its residents welcome her there. Even the members of the Korean Children’s Union there follow suit addressing her as an old patriot.

The officials and other ordinary people of the county make great strides forward toward national prosperity emulating the devotion of Jang Bok Sun to the pine-nut trees in the county and Taeji-ri from the viewpoint of conscience.

Not only our revolutionary predecessors but also we should, first of all, bequeath our boundless loyalty to the Party and the leader and the spirit of noble love for and great devotion to the country to our rising generations.
