On July 28 people of Hartford Connecticut celebrated their 39th West Indian Day. About 40 practitioners from Connecticut, New York, and Boston joined the parade. The participants of the celebration numbered around 10,000, and most of them were African American. We seldom had the chance to get in touch with them before.

At about noontime, in the sky we saw a Falun with double rings around the sun. Practitioners felt encouraged and happy for all the people who came the parade to have a chance to know Dafa. We demonstrated exercises and sent out thousands of Hongfa materials and SOS flyers along the way. When we walked in front of the main stage, the emcee invited us to introduce Falun Gong. We did the first set of exercises and clarified the truth on the persecution of Falun Gong in Mainland China. Many people showed their interest and invited us to come again next year.

The Falun accompanied us all the way through the parade. We thank Master's great compassion and the help from our fellow practitioners.
