On the noon of September 26, over 3,000 teachers and students gathered spontaneously and sang “My Motherland and Me” together at a flash mob event in Qiushi Square of Beihang University, to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China.
The event kicked off with the melodious sound of violin filling up the square. Accompanied with the familiar melody, representatives of the Faculty Art Troupe and the Student Art Troupe sang the beautiful song loudly and passionately.
With more and more passing teachers and students gathering around, this half-an-hour event attracted over 5,000 participants in total. As the event continued to unfold with increasingly exhilarating singing, the participants became increasingly immersed in the experience and the flags in their hands turned into a “sea of red.”
The moving melody resounded throughout the campus, expressing each Beihanger’s infinite love and blessings to the motherland.
