Impressed with the positive values in the performance

Congresswoman Lee said that she was impressed with the positive values portrayed, including the importance of caring for others. She said the performance tells people to help others, contribute to society, and give back through stories and dancing.

Praising Falun Gong practitioners' effort against persecution

In commenting on the piece about the persecution of Falun Gong, she said that she wished everyone supported human rights and would protest the persecution. She praised the practitioners' steadfast efforts to explain the facts of the persecution. She wished more people could work together to change that miserable reality in China.

She said she would welcome DPA to Houston again next year as an annual tradition for the city. She hoped that the DPA show could be presented in China someday.
