On the afternoon of January 7th, 2017,TEDxYouth@NFLS, organized by two graduates of 2014 Shi Hualun and Gao huadi, was started in the theater of the Administrative Building. TED is a platform where people share valuable thoughts. TEDx is a local event authorized by TED officially. When the speakers share experience and ideas, they not only bring thoughts, but also spread the spirit of sharing, which could encourage more people with their own special ideas and stories to stand out and bless even more with what they share. This time we invited 5 speakers in different fields.

Mr. Wu Xianbin is a successful business man. He began to record the history told by the soldiers of the Anti-Japanese War in his forties and has been dedicated himself to the collection and protection of the history. He said that patriotism should be an agreement between a person, the country and its citizens. People sacrifice for their country, the country and its members should show respect to them and take care of their families. Mr. Wu has practiced what he advocates. He managed to find the place where Dai Anlan, commander of National Revolutionary Army No. 200 Division was killed. There he held a memorial ceremony for the soldiers of expedition, and set up monuments for them with money of his own. We should show respect to the warriors who died for their country, and offer help for their families.
