Dear Mr. Jasurek:

Thank you for your letter of April 17th, 2003 educating me on the ancient form of exercise and meditation, Falun Dafa (also known as Falun Gong). Many citizens of Monroe County participate in group exercise and meditation, and would be interested to learn about this method of improving the mind and body through conscious self-improvement, upgrading of the moral character, gentle movement and meditation.

I commend the spirit of those Practitioners who are working to spread the principals of Truth, Compassion, and Tolerance throughout the world. Certainly, the residents of Monroe County value those same principals and are supportive of people who are striving to promote peace.

With best wishes


Dixie M. Spehar
