(Clearwisdom.net) Ms. Song Jinlai is a Falun Dafa practitioner living at Donglu Village in Tianheng Town, Jimo of Qingdao City, Shandong Province. She had many illnesses during her high school years. As a result, she had to stop attending school several times. In 1999, after she started practicing Falun Gong, all of her illnesses disappeared, and she became healthy. She experienced the wonder of Falun Gong. After July 20, 1999, in order to expose the lies fabricated by Jiang's regime and save sentient beings, she distributed truth-clarifying materials in Jimo. This led to her arrest by people from the 610 Office, and she was sent to the Dashan Detention Center in Qingdao City.

She went on hunger strike to protest the illegal persecution, and she suffered much inhumane torture during the period of her hunger strike. When she was sent home, she was near death and was only skin and bones. Her parents, in their 80s, were heartbroken after seeing her terrible condition. Her father was stunned and almost fainted on the spot.

Not long after that, even though Song Jinlai's health had not totally recovered, the police came to her residence and tricked her into coming out. Then they arrested her and sent her to the Jinan City Brainwashing Class. At this point, her parents were still kept in the dark. In this evil brainwashing class, the physically and mentally exhausted Song Jinlai once again experienced cruel torture. The persecution made her feel as if she would be better off dead than alive. On top of this, all around her people attacked her mind with lies and threats, and tempted and lured her. In this confused state of mind, she compromised her belief with her persecutors.

After going home, a few days had not passed before the village Party Secretary led detention center personnel to her residence to harass her. Thereafter, this turned into continuous harassment.

Song Jinlai went to Jimo City to work. The lawless personnel also went to her work place to harass her. Her boss was very upset by their behavior. In order not to implicate her company, she had no choice but to resign from her job. Thereafter she went from place to place to avoid the persecution. When sensitive dates came around, in order to arrest her, the 610 Office persecutors tricked her father into going to the village office to be interrogated. They tried to force the two elderly parents to hand over their daughter. For three years, these lawless people never gave the elderly couple any breathing room. They went in and out of their residence at will.

Later, in November 2004, when Song Jinlai was clarifying the truth about Falun Gong, she was arrested by people from the Jimo 610 Office and sent to the Qingdao City Brainwashing Class to be persecuted. She has not yet been released.

At that time, her parents not only had to bear the pain of being separated from their daughter, they also had to tolerate harassment and threats from the local authorities. Her father, who had lived in fear and anxiety, fell ill. He finally passed away in grief and despair, leaving his wife and daughter behind.
