(Clearwisdom.net) My name is Yu Er (pseudonym) and I am 15 years old. I started practicing Falun Dafa in 1997 and have been studying the Fa and practicing the Falun Gong exercises since I was little. Before the persecution began, sometimes I went out with the adult practitioners to spread Falun Gong and practice the exercises. As more and more people in China began to practice Falun Gong, my area was filled with an atmosphere of peace and compassion.

Driven by jealousy, Jiang Zemin and the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) launched the suppression of Falun Gong on July 20, 1999, and attempted to destroy practitioners' spirits, reputations and lives. My mother and father stepped forward to appeal for Falun Gong, leaving my older sister to look after me. She was 13, and I was 7 at the time. Due to the CCP's interference and harassment, we had not practiced the Falun Gong exercises for some time, but we always remembered that Falun Gong is good and the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance are good. The local authorities often harassed us at our home. Once, the police came and asked us if we would continue to practice Falun Gong. I replied, "Yes, I will." The police even told me to demonstrate one of the Falun Gong exercises, and I did. They left after watching me practice a Falun Gong exercise. When our parents returned home, my sister and I resumed our cultivation practice again. There are many fellow practitioners in our area. Young fellow practitioners and I often go out together to clarify the truth, distribute truth-clarification materials and post truth-clarification messages on the streets. After we studied Teacher's article, "Turning the Wheel Towards the Human World," we started to clarify the truth about the CCP and persuade people to withdraw from the CCP, as well as its affiliated organizations, including the Youth League and the Young Pioneers.

While I attended elementary school, there were three classes at our school. Several young fellow practitioners and I clarified the truth to these students and they all withdrew from the Young Pioneers. The chairman of my class was very angry when it came to the subject of Falun Gong. I clarified the truth to him and he now has a positive attitude towards Falun Gong. The secretary of our team has committed a lot of sins by following CCP orders. I wrote a letter to him in which I said, "Everyone sees it when you do a good deed. Likewise, everyone sees it when you do a bad deed. If you bring a Falun Gong practitioner to court, you will face the legal consequences of your crime sooner or later. You should know the Law of Heaven will ultimately 'reward a good deed and punish a bad deed.'" Since then, the secretary has not been as depraved as before.

When I attended middle school, I clarified the truth about the CCP to my peers. I told them that the communist party is a "beast" and an evil specter. Some argued that the Party is but terminology. I asked them, "Does a human being or the term for human being come into existence first?" They replied, "Human beings." I explained, "That's right. The Party came into existence first before the term was invented to describe it. Why don't we look up in the dictionary and see what 'party' means. All the Chinese phrases and idioms associated with 'party' are negative." Some of my peers decided to withdraw from the Party's affiliated organizations, but others said they needed more time to think about it. At a politics class, the teacher spread a lot of lies about Falun Gong, including the most infamous hate propaganda known as the Self-Immolation at Tiananmen Square. Because I have clarified the truth about the Self-Immolation incident to my classmates, many of them looked at me, expecting me to do something. I felt as though it was a hint from Teacher, so I stood up slowly and told the teacher peacefully, "You are wrong, sir. The so-called Self-Immolation at Tiananmen Square is a hoax that purposefully recruited one actor from each age group to instigate people's hatred against Falun Gong. It is exactly like when the former Chairman of the CCP, Liu Shaoqi, was condemned overnight as a traitor, special agent and enemy of the workers. I believe the Chinese people over 50 years old have shouted the slogan, 'Liu Shaoqi will be forever condemned.' But ten years later, his name was restored and all charges were reversed! Sir, no Chinese dynasty lasts forever." The politics teacher asked for my name and I told him without hesitation.

I would like to tell fellow practitioners of my age or older, no matter which social stratum you belong to, what business you run, whether you work in the private business sector or in a public organization, or whether you go to college, high school or elementary school, it is your mission to clarify the truth as a Falun Gong practitioner. Teacher said,

"Wandering around in society is rather torturous. It must beg for food and meet different kinds of people who will scold, insult, or take advantage of it. It might encounter all kinds of things." (Lecture Eight, Zhuan Falun)

The process of clarifying the truth to the world's people is very similar to the journey of wandering around in society. During the process, we meet with all kinds of different people who might scold, insult or take advantage of us. The process provides us with opportunities to temper our xinxing, search inward for loopholes, and eliminate our attachment to fear and the warped notions of the CCP, so that we can eradicate the evil Party's elements and save sentient beings. No matter which environment or occasion we face, we must walk our path righteously.

Teacher's Fa creates and perfects the future. It follows that, as cultivators, we must establish a good foundation for future generations by conducting ourselves well in society and by doing the three things well with rationality. For example, when we study the Fa, we must be clearheaded in order to truly assimilate to the meaning of the Fa and elevate our xinxing level. When we send forth righteous thoughts, our mind intent must be strong and our thoughts must be righteous in order to disintegrate the evil elements, dark minions and rotten demons. When our posture for sending forth righteous thoughts or for our exercise movements is not correct, we must rectify it right away. When we clarify the truth, our goals are saving people and rectifying their moral values. We may wish people to be free of harm, but first we must tell them that to be free of harm and disasters is to be free of the CCP. The CCP's tyrannous rule and its dozens of terrifying political movements have caused the deaths of 80 million Chinese people over the past five decades. The Chinese people have been deceived by the CCP for over five decades. It is important to ask them to read the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party to see through the nature of the CCP so that they will want to sever all ties with it in order to erase the mark of the beast. We should tell people that Falun Gong is good. All and all, we must save sentient beings with a rational and a clear mind. We must identify our loopholes to prevent the evil from exploiting them. The residual elements of the CCP continue to poison people in China, so we must completely eradicate them. We must save sentient beings, have faith in Teacher and the Fa, and cultivate until consummation.
