One December day in Juche 100 (2011), a few days after Chairman Kim Jong Il passed away, Supreme Leader
Kim Jong Un said to officials in the following:
The Chairman had experienced all sorts of troubles for the sake of his country and people throughout his life. Devotedly working everyday until 3 or 4 o’clock at daybreak, he would see in the dawn of a new day ahead of others. When thinking that the destiny of the country and people he entrusted to me rests on my shoulders, I am not satisfied no matter how hard I may work, and it is regrettable that a day has only 24 hours. I am always thinking about how I would translate his behests into realities. It is my firm pledge and will to do a splendid work so as to further strengthen the People’s Army, build a powerful socialist country admired by the whole world on this land at the earliest date and ensure that our people are well off with nothing to envy in the world. I will carry forward his revolutionary mode and living method throughout my life and be the first to see in the dawn of Korea on behalf of him.
From that day he started the immortal history of his revolutionary activities, which is running through with his firm determination to glorify for all ages the ideas and leadership exploits of the great leaders Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il and realize their behests so as to build a people’s paradise that is the envy of the whole world at the earliest possible date.
