Words from a Convict on Death Row: "If I Had Known of Falun Gong Earlier, I Would Not Have Committed Murder"
This true story took place in a detention center in Sichuan Province.
A woman in her thirties imprisoned for murder had been given the death penalty and would be executed at the end of the year 2000.
Many Dafa disciples were illegally held in the same detention center, where they validated the Fa with their words and actions, and told the inmates the truth and beauty of Dafa. They also revealed to prisoners the facts of how practitioners have been persecuted, and told them of Teacher's benevolence and painstaking salvation. She listened quietly and never said a word. She also witnessed how Dafa practitioners in her cell had been persecuted, and was very concerned and always pondered the reason why. One day, she finally broke her silence and began practicing the exercises with Dafa disciples. A person sentenced to death thus joined the group of practitioners.
Everyone witnessed the changes in her. She became gentle and charming, and always wore a smile on her face. Each day she would study the Fa and do the exercises with Dafa disciples. The guards in the detention center asked her, "Why do you practice Falun Gong? You have already been sentenced to death. Can Falun Gong stop you from dying?" She told the guards how good Falun Gong was. She had been given the death penalty because she killed another person, and it was only fair to repay that life with hers. If she had known of Falun Gong earlier, she would not have killed anyone. She even told the police, "Do not persecute Falun Gong and Dafa disciples. You can beat me because I killed a person and violated the law. I should be punished. But they cultivate 'Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance' and are all very kind. They never violated any laws." Three days before the execution she dreamed that she died after being shot three times. The day before the execution, the guards asked her if there was anything she would like to say to her family. She peacefully told the guards, "It is the natural law to repay a life with a life and this is exactly what I should do. Falun Dafa is the righteous Fa and I hope you will not persecute Dafa disciples. Falun Dafa is truly good. Who doesn't like 'Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance'? If I had known of Falun Gong earlier, I would not have killed anyone and would not have violated any laws. It is simply retribution that I will only live until tomorrow!"
On the day of the execution she was taken out of the cell, followed by a few other prisoners. When those prisoners came back they told the other inmates that all the way to the execution grounds, she told the guards Falun Dafa is good and asked them to stop persecuting Dafa disciples.
That was her last will. She was shot three times.
A fellow practitioner, in the same cell, saw in a vision that this prisoner went to the home of the practitioner's relatives. The relative's entire family practiced Dafa. It was later confirmed that the relative's daughter-in-law gave birth to a son that exact same day.
