World Falun Dafa Day in Georgia
Whereas: May 13, 2005 is the 13th anniversary of the introduction to the world of Falun Dafa, which is practiced in more than 50 countries; and
Whereas: Falun Dafa is a traditional meditation practice of body, mind and spirit that emphasizes the assimilation of the universal principals of truth, compassion and forbearance; and
Whereas: Falun Dafa transcends cultural and racial boundaries and contributes to the universal dream of a peaceful, tolerant and more compassionate society; and
Whereas: Falun Dafa practitioners' determination and courage to stand up for Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance under the most severe environment reminds us of the value of life and the precious quality of human dignity; now
Therefore I, Sonny Perdue, Governor of the State of Georgia, do hereby proclaim May 13, 2005, as World Falun Dafa Day in Georgia.
In witness thereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the Seal of the Executive Department to be affixed this 11th day of May in the year of our Lord two thousand five.
