(Clearwisdom.net) Three years ago on April 25, over 10,000 Falun Gong practitioners went to Beijing and peacefully appealed to the government to investigate the mistreatment of Falun Gong practitioners and to ensure the people's rights of freedom of belief.
To commemorate this great day in history, to clarify the truth of the persecution against Dafa practitioners in China for the last three years, to raise awareness that the persecution is continuing and everyday there are Dafa practitioners either detained or tortured to death, and to mourn the over 400 documented and many more undocumented practitioners tortured to death in China by the Jiang regime, Seattle Dafa practitioners held a candlelight vigil beside a lake starting at 7:30 p.m. on April 25, 2002. Recently, they have been sending forth righteous thoughts continuously at the top of every hour like Dafa practitioners worldwide to eliminate the evil.
There were many passersby. They were moved by the practitioners' peacefulness and firm righteous thoughts. Many passersby accepted the truth-clarifying literature that we offered to them. Some of them greeted the practitioners with Heshi or holding a fist in front of their chest like ancient Chinese. Some of them said sincerely, "Thank you."
