Kim Jong Il's Life Dedicated to Country and People
Pyongyang, February 16 (KCNA) -- Leader Kim Jong Il devoted his all to the country and the people, making a ceaseless journey of field guidance in his lifetime.

He regarded it as his pleasure to work without rest for the country's prosperity and the people's happiness.

He visited military posts, industrial establishments and farms day and night in all seasons, disregarding weather conditions. His ceaseless field guidance reached every corner of the country.

It was one day in January Juche 89 (2000) that he was on the way for field guidance to North Phyongan Province.

On train he made out a detailed schedule for tours of different sectors in the province, saying that work was just a rest for him.

After the inspection of military units early in the morning, he went round rezoned Handre Plain in Thaechon County for hours. At that time officials could not put up a board of blueprint on land rezoning due to strong wind.

Then he continued his field guidance, enduring his fatigue.

Such restless journey of field guidance was based on his patriotic devotion and deep love for the people.

That is why the DPRK people are missing him so much, saying that their present happiness is attributable to his great pains.
