1. One day, I spoke to an oil tank driver regarding the truth of Falun Gong. Surprisingly, the driver said, "I know Falun Gong is good, but because I'm busy with making money, I can't practice it now. I do know, though, a human being should act with a conscience!" He continued, "Last year I went to Hegang City to take care of some business. A few police officers came up to me in the middle of the road. They first wanted to check my ID, but I told them I didn't have it with me. Then they asked me to curse at 'Teacher Li.' I told them that I didn't know that person! The patrolling police said even if I didn't know him I still had to curse. I asked him, "If other people wanted me to slander you, should I also comply?" The police officer became speechless, and appeared deflated.

2. I had a get-together with a few of my friends, and one of them mentioned the following incident. While at work in his company, one of his colleagues told him that as a result of reporting a Falun Gong practitioner, or catching a Falun Gong practitioner posting flyers on the spot, one will obtain a certain financial reward. My friend responded to him by saying, "I don't practice Falun Gong, but I know Falun Gong practitioners are all good people. Do you really want to do these kinds of things that cause loss of virtue! Could you really spend that money with a clear conscience?" His colleague didn't have anything to say and left.
