Pyongyang, April 3 (KCNA) -- Rodong Sinmun Tuesday editorially calls upon all the people to commemorate the centenary of the birth of President Kim Il Sung (Day of the Sun) as a great holiday in the nation's history and achieve a great victory in the gigantic advance for a great surge in the drive to usher in a heyday for prosperity.

The centenary of his birth will mark a great political festival demonstrating before the whole world the indomitable faith of all service personnel and people to give steady continuity to the history of the great sun for all ages, the editorial says, and goes on:

It serves, at the same time, as an occasion of eternally glorifying the history of a legendary great man produced by humankind and an auspicious holiday as it stirs up the immense pride of the Korean people going by the august name of the President.

To commemorate the Day of the Sun with splendor is an important work to further glorify the undying feats of leader Kim Jong Il who remained true to the idea and cause of the President.

It is thanks to Kim Jong Il's leadership that a steady continuity is given to the revolutionary history of the President.

It is necessary to commemorate the Day of the Sun this year as a pleasant and happy holiday in which the people's happy laughter and hurrah for socialism will be heard as desired by Kim Jong Il so much in his lifetime.

The army and people of the DPRK are called upon to fully display the spirit and stamina of Songun Korea under the uplifted slogan "The great Comrade Kim Il Sung and Comrade Kim Jong Il are always be with us".
