With or Without Your Family!

The Little Red Book

"The world is yours, as well as ours, but in the last analysis, it is yours. You young people, full of vigor and vitality, are the bloom of life, like the sun at eight or nine in the morning. Our hope is placed in you. The world belongs to you. China's future belongs to you."

"Red Guards, Red Guards.

Burning with revolutionary zeal,

Tested by the storm of class struggle

Tempered for battle our hearts are red,

Standing firm, direction clear, our vigor for revolution strong,

We follow the party with full devotion,

We are Chairman Mao's Red Guards.

Red Guards, Red Guards.

We want to be successors to Communism.

The revolutionary red banner passes on from generation to generation,

We want to try on the glorious tradition.

Loving the country, loving the people, loving the collective, loving to work.

Connecting with the workers and the peasants,

We are Chairman Mao's Guards.
