The International Kite Festival held at Hong Kong International Airport on December 17, 2000 drew large crowds of residents as well as tourists. Practitioners in Hong Kong took advantage of this good opportunity to reveal the true story about Falun Dafa to the public.

The parking lot at the airport was packed with people and there were thousands of kites flying in the sky. Practitioners flew kites reading "Falun Dafa" and "Truth-Compassion-Forbearance", hoping the Hong Kong general public would be awakened to the truth about Falun Dafa and the crackdown in China. Outside the airport, some practitioners distributed flyers explaining the truth to passengers and visitors.

The Fa-promoting activities in Hong Kong have always been centered around outdoor group practice, and the distribution of Dafa information to local residents and tourists. Practitioners even adopted a more direct approach by dropping pamphlets in residential mailboxes. All these activities have achieved some positive results. However, many local residents have yet to develop in-depth understanding about what's going on with respect to Falun Dafa in China. People do not clearly understand who we are and what we do as Falun Dafa practitioners. We may want to consider more flexible options and effective approaches to increase public exposure and personal interaction with Dafa. For example, the government sponsored Health Expo presented a good opportunity for us to interact with people and tell them the truth. Many people may change their negative attitudes toward Dafa via direct contact with Dafa practitioners. Our compassionate behavior and kind deeds will speak louder than the smear campaign by the Chinese government. Eventually people's misunderstanding about Dafa will be corrected by the powerful truth.

This is what we recently learned by participating in the Health Expo, but there is still much room for improvement. With more experience, we are confident we can tell the truth to the public much better by taking full advantage of every appropriate public event or theme activity.

Master Li said Dafa is harmonious. If we can harmonize our presence and activities into any appropriate public setting, it will greatly help people to develop a correct understanding about Dafa.
