If they want to secure a better life, they can’t just expect others to hand it over, but should learn from those who have succeeded through hard work.Those young protesters, who are in the golden period of their lives, should quit the impulsive rage and turn themselves into strivers and constructors, to leave no regrets in youth and embrace a wonderful future. var addthis_config = {“data_track_addressbar”:false};(For the latest China news, Please follow Peoples Daily on Twitter and Facebook)(Web editor: Hongyu, Bianji)Add your comment/* * * CONFIGURATION VARIABLES: EDIT BEFORE PASTING INTO YOUR WEBPAGE * * */var shortname=window.location.host;var disqus_shortname=;var disqus_identifier=;if (shortname==en.people.cn){disqus_shortname=enpeople;disqus_identifier = 9605403;}/* * * DONT EDIT BELOW THIS LINE * * */(function() {var dsq = document.createElement(script); dsq.type = text/javascript; dsq.async = true;dsq.src = // + disqus_shortname + .disqus.com/embed.js;(document.getElementsByTagName(head)[0] || document.getElementsByTagName(body)[0]).appendChild(dsq);})();Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus.Related readingHong Kong in the eyes of a reporter:HK Police face unfair comments but willing to hold onAmCham calls for smooth commerce in Hong KongHK tertiary students graduate from PLA military campOne police officer seriously injured by gasoline bombs in Hong KongAssociation of Hong Kong Flag-guards holds flag raising ceremony at middle schoolHong Kong people express support for police, calling for end to violenceHong Kong residents gather to support policeHong Kong representatives voice against violence and call for restoring orderNo more chaos in Hong Kong!
