热烈祝贺中国共产党成立100周年，我是爱尔兰音乐家吉米·麦卡锡。我的太太、女儿和女婿都是中国人，我对中国最深刻的印象来自于她们。我女儿15岁上大学，十八岁入党，现在是一位有着十多年党龄的优秀的中国共产党党员。去年，我的太太组织欧洲和中国音乐家创作抗疫公益歌曲，并且组织了网上音乐会，用音乐鼓舞中国、欧洲和全球抗击疫情。同时她还是Liberty soup run慈善机构的志愿者。
Congratulations on the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China. I'm Jimmy MacCarthy, an Irish musician. My wife, daughter, and son-in-law are all Chinese. My deepest impression of China comes from them. My daughter went to college at the age of 15 and joined the Communist Party at the age of 18. She is now an excellent member of the Communist Party of China with more than ten years of experience. Last year, my wife organized European and Chinese musicians to write charity songs against the pandemic and organized online concerts to use music to fight the pandemic in China, Europe, and the world. She also volunteers for Liberty Soup Run, a charity organization.
To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China, on June 16, my wife organized a 100-minute live Chinese and foreign art exhibition "Loyalty to the nation". From them, I felt the rich sense of mission, responsibility, and social responsibility of the Chinese people.
Chinese leader Xi Jinping's speech at the celebration of the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China on July 1 let the world see the great achievements China has made under the leadership of the CPC. China is one of the countries that knows best how to deal with COVID-19. With a history of more than 5,000 years and a population of 1.4 billion, this country has surpassed countries in the northern hemisphere in every indicator of human progress.
I think the future of China under the leadership of the Communist Party of China is boundless and its rise is unstoppable. When the pandemic is over, I must go to see the great China that has raised my proud and beloved family!
