Ms. Jin Lifeng, a 39-year-old English teacher at Bohai Ship Industrial School in Huludao City, Liaoning Province, benefited physically and psychologically after she began practicing Falun Dafa in 1997. The practice of Falun Dafa freed her legs of paralysis. And for her hard work after cultivating "Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance" she was awarded as excellent teacher several times. Once the persecution struck China in 1999, she was frequently detained for telling people the truth about Falun Gong. On August 14, 2001, she was kidnapped from her school by police and sent to Huludao Detention Center. During her hunger strike to protest the persecution there, she was brutally force-fed and killed on the eve of the Spring Festival of 2002.
