DPRK People's Yearning for Kim Jong Il Grows Deeper with Snowfall
Pyongyang, December 12 (KCNA) -- There has been a heavy fall of snow here on Wednesday and Thursday.

The snowfall deepens the Korean people's yearning for leader Kim Jong Il, who left them amid heavy snowfall two years ago.

On the day of the ceremony of bidding the last farewell to him, citizens took off their clothes and put them on the snow-covered streets where the hearse was passing.

In fact leader Kim Jong Il had made a ceaseless journey of field guidance for the wellbeing of the people, in disregard of weather conditions, until the last moments of his life. Though he was in bad health condition in December 2011, he continued his field guidance.

The Korean people had always wished him good health, singing such songs as "Where Are You, Dear General?" and "We Believe in You as in Heaven".

Witnessing the snowfall, they are now hardening their will to carry out Kim Jong Il's behests on building a thriving socialist nation without fail, under the guidance of Marshal Kim Jong Un.
