(Clearwisdom.net) I am a 12-year-old sixth grade student. When I was in first grade, I suffered from inflamed kidneys and went to two hospitals for treatment, but neither of them could help me. In the end, I went to a hospital in Beijing. This cost my parents over 10,000 Yuan, but they could not help me. I was diagnosed with chronic nephritis. My mother cried in distress, but her elder sister comforted her by saying, "Don't cry, it's no use crying, we need to have this child practice Falun Gong." So I started my cultivation of Falun Dafa.

I was on a one-term sick leave. During this time, I went with my grandma to the practice site. When someone read Zhuan Falun, I read along in a low voice. Soon after, something amazing happened, as I was able to read the whole book. At the same time, Teacher cleaned up my body. I could tell because I was sweating non-stop, and my health kept improving. Very soon I recovered. My grandpa was still concerned about my health and took me to the hospital for a check up. The results showed that I was fine.

On July 20th, 1999, they banned Falun Gong. We were not allowed to do the exercises and study the Fa. Even though I was still young, I knew that Dafa and our benevolent Teacher saved me. When I heard that my grandma and my sister were going to the appeals office, I asked my grandma why they were going there. My grandma answered, "We are going there just to say some words of truth, which is, Falun Dafa is good, Falun Dafa is the righteous Fa." I said, "I want to go to the appeal office to say Falun Dafa is good, too." So the three of us headed for Beijing. Unexpectedly, when we arrived at the Beijing railway station, there were police everywhere. We weren't allowed to get out of the station; I was so disappointed.

Our school's teachers were ordered to organize students to sign their names to denounce Dafa. I refused. I know that Teacher teaches Dafa practitioners to comply with "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance," to be kind to others, to think about others first, and to be good people. There is nothing wrong with that. I will follow our Teacher closely, keep up with Fa rectification, and continue my cultivation with no regrets.
