A Young Dafa Practitioner's Solemn Declaration
(Clearwisdom.net) I learned Falun Dafa in 1996. I was ten years old. I didn't study Dafa seriously at that time. After the persecution started on July 20, 1999, I was confused in my mind. My mother went to Beijing to clarify the truth about Falun Gong on July 20 and was arrested and later released. She was later arrested again for clarifying the truth about Falun Gong; so I seldom saw my mother during this time. I didn't study Dafa any more because of the pressure from my school officials. This led me to quit school. I started to become a bad kid. I did many things that I shouldn't have done and I damaged the name of Falun Dafa.
My mother was illegally sentenced to three years of "Re-education through Forced Labor." After her sentencing, I lost control more and more. I would fulfill my bad thoughts whenever they entered my mind. Not only that, I also forged a" guarantee letter" for my mother. My second aunt was dying of cancer, and I watched her physical body waste away. I suddenly woke up and saw my family being ripped apart. My mother gently guided me and I started cultivation practice all over again with the help of practitioners.
Here, I want to thank the Venerable Teacher Li Hongzhi who has not given up on me. I want thank my mother and the practitioners who helped me to cultivate again. I not only broke the vows of my own sacred responsibilities but also did bad deeds. I am embarrassed beyond words. I can't describe the great mercy of Teacher. Right now I can only do what Teacher Li teaches. Teacher Li not only gave me so much, but also gives things that will last forever, irrespective of time. Teacher, I will do my best in the future and will not disappoint you anymore. Once more I declare that the "guarantee letter" [A statement to declare that he or she is remorseful for practicing Falun Gong and guarantees not to practice Falun Gong again, not to go to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong, and never again associate with any Falun Dafa practitioners.] I wrote to suit the evil null and void. No one and no other beings can play tricks on the mercy of our Teacher, and they shouldn't really even try.
