(Clearwisdom.net) This is a true story of something that happened to my family. Two of my relatives received injuries of the same severity through a car accident, yet obtained two completely different outcomes.

A year ago, my husband was in a car accident and was unconscious. After the examination, it was discovered that he had four bone fractures, but his internal organs and skull were unharmed. He soon regained consciousness. After 22 days of hospitalization, however, he died of a pulmonary embolism (1).

Two months ago, my daughter was also in a car accident in Guangzhou City, and also rendered unconscious. Her head and body was badly bruised and skinned, her face was swollen, she was unable to open her eyes and mouth, her teeth became loose and bones were visible in the wound beneath her chin. She was sent to the hospital for emergency rescue. At the time, she had no memory of what happened. After three days of hospitalization, she was released, continues to recover quickly, and has healed without any side effects.

I started to practice Falun Gong in early 1999. My husband had always been very supportive and often photocopied Teacher's new lectures for me. After July 20, 1999, when the TV and newspapers began their relentless attack of Falun Gong, he began to urge me to stop practicing. I said, "Since I have practiced Falun Gong, what have I done wrong? I will change if you can point out something I've done wrong." He said, "Even if it is good, you cannot practice it, because the nation forbids it." He was always very angry and refused to listen to me when I tried to clarify the truth to him. All he believed was the propaganda spread by the news.

Later, feeling "responsible" for me, he spent about a hundred yuan and bought 19 books that slander Falun Gong for me. When I refused to read them and told him that the accusations were all untrue, he got even angrier, and wanted to turn me in to the detention center. From then on, all we could do was to keep our opinions to ourselves and avoid further discussion on the subject.

After he had the accident, I wanted many times to tell him not to slander Falun Gong, yet I was always too scared to say anything, believing -- like an ordinary person -- that if I raised the subject it would only make him angry, and I didn't want to do that while he was on his sick bed. After he passed away, however, it was my greatest regret that I did not make him realize that Falun Dafa is good. If he had changed his mind about Falun Dafa, then perhaps things would have been different. During the funeral preparations, his picture was set on the table, and I was afraid to look at him. When I looked, his eyes would be staring at me, as if he was begging something of me. Even now, as I think about it, and I am still unable to stop crying.

My dear fellow practitioners, please do not let this kind of thing happen to anyone else.

After my daughter's accident, we talked about what happened that day. It had happened at about 9 p.m. The vehicle that caused the accident left the scene, leaving her on the street for an unknown amount of time. Finally, when a passerby saw that she was not moving, and cars that were passing by were ignoring her, this kind-hearted man notified the police, bringing an emergency rescue. The surgical doctor said these kind of accidents happen very frequently. A person is hit by one car, and then other cars that pass strike the victim, leaving him beyond rescue. The doctor said that my daughter was wounded so severely but recovered so quickly that it was truly amazing. Later, my daughter remembered that she had told over 10 people that Falun Dafa is good, and said that, "My mother also practices Falun Gong, and she's great!" I also remembered that when a police officer came to our house, my daughter told him, "My mother practices Falun Gong, it improved her moral character and health greatly."

Our Teacher said that,

"Even when an ordinary person shouts out "Falun Dafa is good" today, Master will protect him,..." ("Teaching and Explaining the Fa at the Metropolitan New York Fa Conference")

Because she saw the changes in me, my daughter said, "Falun Dafa is good," from the bottom of her heart and that is the purest thing. Because of this, she was protected by Teacher during the most dangerous moment of her life.
