Good morning, everyone. My name is Wang Gang. First of all I would like to thank Mr Zhang Sha and the city of Tangshan for the honor of talking to you. I would also like to thank each of you for coming here today for this special occasion. I’m sure all of us are glad to see that so many people who were hurt in the quake or lost their homes and businesses are here today. We are also glad to see so many of the workers here who helped during that terrible disaster. Everyone is so proud of all of you. Did you know that some of the survivors helped others before they helped themselves? It’s true: many thousands of survivors worked hard to save others and to make them feel more comfortable. Soldiers worked hour after hour, day after day, almost without rest to help those who needed it. We are so thankful to them as well. Now we see around us a new city, but the spirit of its people has always been strong. How lucky I feel to live in such a place and to see this beautiful new park where families can come to enjoy nature. This park also honors the survivors of the quake and those who saved them. It honors the many thousands who rebuilt our city. We are indeed the “Brave City of China”. Thank you.
Sample speech 2:
Ladies and gentlemen,
Good morning. It’s my great honor to be give the chance to give the speech. First I’d like to thank Mr. Zhang and the city government for inviting me to speak. I’d also like to thank all of you for attending this special activity.
Everyone knows that this park will be opened to honor those who died in the terrible disaster on this day 31 years ago. We should say that all of you are very lucky to have survived. But never can we forget those who helped you do the rescue work. They dug out those who had been trapped and buried the dead. Most of the 10 000 miners who had been trapped underground were rescued. They also helped build the new city. They built shelters for survivors whose homes had been destroyed. They built new homes and offices in only seven years. The United Nations honored them for their quick work. While doing the rescue work and rebuilding the city of Tangshan, many workers and soldiers lost their lives. We should show our greatest honor to them.
When I first arrived in the city yesterday, I came to understand why Tangshan was called “Brave City of China”. What you have done made the whole world surprised. Look at the tall buildings and the beautiful environment. There is little trance of the terrible earthquake. How brave you are! All the people in the world should learn from you. I think you should always be proud of the city.
Thank you.
