Whole Life Dedicated to People

Comrade Kim Jong Il(1942-2011), the great leader of the Korean people  was a great revolutionary and peerless patriot who dedicated his all to the country and people.
He, bearing in mind the lofty mission that he was in charge of the destiny of the country and people and great love for them, made a ceaseless journey for field guidance.
On December 15, 2011, though he was not well, he visited the  Kwangbok Area Supermarket reconstructed splendidly in Pyongyang, capital city, and made rounds of it for a long time.
He said that he was much pleased to see a new commerce and public service facility working for improvement of the people’s life, he felt warm to see the pile of goods in Kwangbok Area Supermarket although it was cold outside and it was his fixed will and resolution to give the people best things.
Saying that he had nothing to desire more when the people led happy life, he made a great journey for the loving care and devotion to the people.
The distance of the journey for field guidance he made without holidays is more than 669 844 kilometers and it amounts to nearly 17 times the distance round the earth.
 Thanks to the dedication and pains taken by Chairman Kim Jong Il who regarded the idea of "The people are my God" as his motto and always found himself among the people, the Korean people turn their beautiful ideal into reality demonstrating the dignity and prestige of the country.
Today the Chairman’s long journey of loving the people is continuously carried forward by General Secretary Kim Jong Un.
