(Clearwisdom.net) On the afternoon of August 24, 2002, the open ceremony for a mental arithmetic competition was held at the Elite Musical Performance Arts Center in Plano, Texas. Dallas Falun Gong practitioners took this opportunity to clarify the truth about Falun Gong to attending students and their parents.

One of the organizers is a Falun Gong practitioner. The practitioner planned the activity and prepared various Falun Gong truth-clarifying materials with the help of other practitioners. The room was decorated with colorful balloons with the words "Falun Dafa is good" and "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance" on them.

During the event, a Falun Gong practitioner and singer Ms. Zhu from Houston sang several Dafa songs, including "Falun Dafa Is Good" and "Young Dafa Disciples." Ms. Zhu also shared her husband's and her own experiences of obtaining Falun Dafa. One month after her husband took up the practice of Falun Gong, his serious high blood pressure and diabetes disappeared miraculously. The students and parents listened attentively. Some of them immediately asked for information about time and place for the practice site.

Afterwards, many parents requested Dafa materials. Many students also happily left the room with bookmarks with the words "Falun Dafa is good."
