On Earth Day, Falun Gong practitioners spread the grace of Falun Dafa and explained the facts to many people
The Earth Day celebration was held in a South Park in downtown Sacramento. More than 150 groups and individuals participated in the exhibition. Across the beautiful and spacious park, there was a big farmers' market. Nearby were a Chinese supermarket, Chinese restaurants, Chinese medicine shop and eastern farmers' market, where Chinese people like to go shopping. At 10 a.m., local Falun Gong practitioners distributed Falun Gong flyers and Epoch Times in Chinese and English. Most people accepted the materials. Some expressed their appreciation.
A middle-aged man said excitedly, "Every day I visit the website of Epoch Times. I know the facts well. You practitioners work hard. I come from China and learned the facts of the CCP-staged self-immolation on Tiananmen Square after reading the information." He praised and admired the practitioners' effort of truth-clarification.
Seeing practitioners stepped in his Chinese supermarket, the owner said warmly, "You work hard." He was kind and ready to bring drinks to the practitioners.
One interesting episode involved an older Chinese couple. They stood across from the booth and watched from a distance. They seemed puzzled and unfriendly. A practitioner saw them and took a CD, brochures and flyers to them. The practitioner asked them, "Hello. Are you Chinese? Can you speak in Chinese?" The lady said in Chinese while pulling her husband to leave, "No. No. We don't speak Chinese." The practitioner talked with them kindly and learned they just came to US for a little over one month. After listening to the explanation of the facts, they gladly accepted the materials.
