The celebration started with a waist drum dance, which was followed by more than 10 programs. Despite the hot weather, the audience enjoyed practitioners' musical numbers and singing very much.

The Story behind the Song "Coming For You"

The song "Coming For You" tells a touching story. 36 western Falun Gong practitioners from more than 10 countries went to Tiananmen Square in Mainland China to appeal for Falun Gong on November 20, 2001. Facing the threat of violence, they testified to the beauty of Falun Dafa in front of the precious Chinese people and told them: Falun Dafa has spread to more than 60 countries, many westerners know that Falun Dafa is good and they can freely practice Falun Gong without interference. Using their courage, they successfully exposed the lies of Jiang's regime.

In this celebration, 6 western practitioners from the U.S., Sweden, Canada and Israel sang "Coming For You" in Chinese. They love Chinese culture, and they introduced themselves in Chinese and sang the song to express the heartfelt feelings.

The practitioner from Israel said that Falun Gong originated in China, and they felt very fortunate to be able to practice Falun Gong. May 13 is World Falun Dafa Day and it means a lot to them. They love Chinese culture and want to use their pure hearts to wake up the precious Chinese, and tell them not to believe in the Jiang group's lies against Falun Gong. One would regret greatly in the future if he or she has participated in the persecution of Falun Gong.

An Unusual Mother's Day

Mr. and Mrs. Chen are from Kaohsiung, and their whole family practices Falun Gong. They said that they were very happy to be able to participate in this grand occasion to respectfully wish Master a Happy Birthday together with all practitioners.

Four mothers and daughters went on stage to share their cultivation experiences. Mrs. Peng and her daughter of Kaohsiung shared the following story: Mr. Peng started to practice Falun Gong 6 years ago. In the first 2 years, both Mrs. Peng and her daughter were against his practice because they had their own religious beliefs. However, after witnessing the great positive change happening to Mr. Peng, all the members of the Peng family started to practice Falun Gong. Mrs. Peng had arthritis before she started to practice Falun Gong; now she has traveled around the world to share with people the miracle she has experienced and the beauty of Falun Dafa. She sincerely thanks Falun Dafa for bringing health and happiness to her family.

At the end of the celebration, all of the performers sang "Falun Dafa Hao" together. The performers also invited all the guests to sing with them. As this song is very easy to learn, the guests soon found themselves singing it very fluently.

As Taiwan practitioners celebrate World Falun Dafa Day on Mother's Day, we won't forget that many mothers of Mainland Chinese Falun Gong practitioners have lost their sons and daughters. Falun Gong practitioners who are just striving to be good persons have been persecuted in China by Jiang's group for almost 5 years, and many have to stay away from home to avoid being arrested. We call on all kindhearted people to pay closer attention to the persecution and help to end this persecution as soon as possible.
