Friends of urban and rural residents:
See also the year when the spring grass is green and the pear blossom wind is clear. Ching Ming Festival is a traditional festival of the Chinese nation. Whenever Ching Ming Festival occurs, people sacrifice deceased people, burn the firecrackers, set off firecrackers and other means to sacrifice the dead, go after the distance, remember the deceased, and put on grief. These traditional sacrifice customs not only cause environmental pollution and waste of resources, but also easily cause fires and bring hidden dangers to public safety. They are also full of feudal superstitions and are no longer suitable for the development of modern social civilization. As a modern person, we must abandon the old customs, start with civilized sacrifice, advocate low-carbon environmental protection sacrifices, reduce pollution, protect the environment, care for civilization, and strive to "move the wind, change the customs, protect the environment, and consider the ancestors and civilization first". We send the following proposals to friends in urban and rural areas:
First, low-carbon sacrifice, "green and clear." Express traditional sacrificial customs in an environmentally friendly and civilized way. Actively promote the changing of customs and customs, refuse to burn old coins, burn incense candles, set off firecrackers and other old sacrifice customs, and advocate modern sacrifice methods such as dedicating flowers and planting trees. A vigorously growing tree and a flower that blooms in the spring can better express sorrow for ancestors and nostalgia for life. Planting trees and afforesting, and greening grave hills are modern and beneficial, and it requires action by all the people. Planting trees and flowers, greening graves to commemorate the deceased, and making green shades the best habitat for ancestors.
Second, the simple sacrifices, "Civilization is clear." Inherit the virtue of "filial piety, love for the elderly" and establish the concept of "thick care and thin burial". Adhere to the frugality of frugality, sacrifices of ecological civilization, so that the deceased rejoices, and the living is at ease. Promote new sacrifice methods such as “Jianji”, “Thin Festival”, “Public Sacrifice”, and online sacrifice. Through new media platforms such as Weibo and WeChat, spread the good family traditions left by the deceased, and remember the touching stories of the past. Missing, grateful, and admiring the old people. Opposing extravagance and waste, comparing each other, resisting vulgar and ignorant, feudal and superstitious sacrifice and sacrifice, the Qingming sacrifice was shifted from focusing on physical sacrifices to spiritual civilization.
Third, safety sacrifice, "safe and clear." Consciously abide by the relevant laws and regulations such as the "Environmental Protection Law", "Regulations for the Management of Funeral and Burial" and "Regulations for the Management of the Discharge of Fireworks and Firecrackers" and other civil laws; Burning paper and burning incense in woodlands and cemeteries, not burning paper money or setting off firecrackers on roadsides, squares, communities, lawns, etc .; do not engage in feudal superstitions, and do not hinder and affect public order and security during sacrificial activities. Advocate safe travel, obey the order of public security management, reasonably arrange the time and route of sacrifices, avoid various safety accidents, and jointly create a harmonious and orderly festival environment.
Civilization comforts the spirit, and lives in peace and happiness. It is the common responsibility of the whole society to promote the funeral and funeral reform and advocate ecological civilization. Let's start from now and start bit by bit, set up a new wind of ecological civilization sacrifices, and take practical actions of remembering and caring for others with civilization, striving to be the forerunners of bad habits, practitioners of ecological civilization sacrifices, and implementers of green funeral As a proponent of the outstanding Chinese culture, he will contribute to the writing of the beautiful and happy Xin Chai Sang with the practical actions of ecological civilization.
