Nine Pairs of Shoes
On October 5, 2001 I arrived at Tiananmen Square to validate the Fa. I was standing south of the National Flag Pole and saw a fellow female practitioner, about 50 years old, about to sit down on the ground.
As soon as she settled into the sitting meditation, some policemen rushed over, grabbed her, and tried to push her into a police van. Right at that moment, the woman said, "You can arrest me after I finish what I want to tell you." With that, she took out 9 pairs of shoes from her bag and displayed them one by one on the ground of Tiananmen Square. "Do you see these 9 pairs of shoes? It took me two months and 9 pairs of shoes to come to Beijing from Sichuan Province just to say one thing: Falun Dafa is good; Falun Dafa is the righteous Fa." The police were dumbstruck. Finally one of them said, "You have achieved Consummation, and you can go now."
