Ukraine Falun Dafa Practitioners Participate in A City's Festival Celebration (Photos)
(Clearwisdom.net) It was a warm and sunny day. Dafa practitioners took to streets to clarify the truth about Falun Dafa to people enjoying their city s festival celebration.
In the morning, we displayed Dafa truth-clarifying boards in a park where major celebrations would take place. Many people walked up to look at our display boards and were moved by what they saw. A woman said, "We should tell our children about this, let 'Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance' be deeply rooted in their hearts when they are young." Many young children and their parents excitedly accepted beautiful bookmarks.
We were invited to give a performance on the stage, but our performance was scheduled at the end of the day s program. When the program was close to the end, the audience began to disperse. There was almost no audience around the stage, only some people sitting on a park bench. We decided that even if there was nobody watching our program in front of the stage, we would still perform for the remaining people in the park. When it was our turn, we went up to the stage, and Dafa music began reverberating through the park. The practitioners' graceful and smooth exercise movements and a practitioner's calm and gentle voice explaining the facts about Falun Dafa magnetically drew people to return to the stage area from different places. They attentively listened to the practitioners' introduction of Falun Dafa and the facts about the persecution in China.
When our presentation was over, we sincerely wished everyone to remember "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance." A local artist was deeply moved by our performance and unexpectedly presented us with a painting he had made. He was almost in tears when we had a conversation with him. We thanked him and had a photo taken with him.
An older man said to us, "You've been doing such a good thing. How great it would be if the authorities wholeheartedly support you. It's really a pity that such a brutal persecution is taking place in China. I wish you great success."
Later on, we went to the central park where various groups were performing a concert. We obtained approval from the park manager to demonstrate our exercises on the stage. A little girl spontaneously stood up from the audience and followed us to do the exercises. We hope "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance" will be embedded in people's hearts and bring them good fortune and happiness.
The audience gave us warm applause, and they were reluctant to leave until our demonstration was concluded.
