(Clearwisdom.net) On August 10, 2002, Johnson County's annual grand parade was held in the city of Goedele. It was the third time for Kansas Falun Gong practitioners to participate in this event. They once again demonstrated to thousands in audience the beauty of Falun Dafa. Many in the audience happily accepted our Dafa materials, and children joyfully read the words on the bookmarks, "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance," and nodded to express that they would remember these three words.

During the parade, one congressman saw the practitioners in bright yellow Dafa T shirts, walked up to us, gently patted a practitioner on the shoulder and said, "You have been contributing a lot to the community activities, thank you!" The practitioner gave Dafa flyers to the congressman and his wife, who have been very supportive of us. One of the local residents accepted the flyer and read out loud the words on it in delight, "Falun Gong... you are a Falun Gong practitioner!"
