(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Gong practitioner Shao Hui previously worked at the Hongshi Forest Farm and Hongshi Forestry Bureau Clinic in Huadian City, Jilin Province. He was tortured to death by people from the Jilin City Police Department in August 2002. He was only 31 years old. What follows is some information about his son, Shao Linyao.

Shao Hui's family of three

Shao Linyao is now eight years old and attends the Xinhua Primary School in Huadian City. When he was one month old, his parents started practicing Falun Dafa. Shao Linyao had a healthy and happy childhood in a loving and harmonious family environment. He was an intelligent and sensible child, and was always in a happy mood. He was adored by everyone around him.

His happiness, however, did not last long, because Jiang's faction arrested his parents time and time again. Since turning three years old, he has been deprived of his parents and subjected to loneliness, helplessness, and terror. His young heart is burdened with suffering and agony far beyond what he should have to bear at such a tender age.

He cried every day after his parents were taken away, but never loudly. Instead, he would just quietly wipe away his tears. In the evening, when others were asleep, he covered himself with the quilt and cried. No one knows how many times he woke up crying from his dreams. At the kindergarten class, he often burst into tears, and when the teacher asked him why he was crying, he told the teacher that his mom and dad were suffering in a forced labor camp and the police were shocking them with electric batons.

After his mother's release on bail for health reasons, after having suffered for nearly three years in the labor camp, Shao Linyao followed her around everywhere for fear that he might lose her again. In the evening, when his mother went out, he would just sit there and wait until she came home, no matter how late it was. When she told him to go to bed earlier because he had school the next morning, he said to her with tears in his eyes, "I'm scared that bad people might take you away again when you go out. I can't stop worrying until you come back home!"

This poor child still does not know that his dad has already died a tragic death. When people ask him what he would like to do when he grows up, he says, "I will be a policeman, and I will deal especially with those evildoing police. I will keep them from arresting good people. Then my dad and my elder aunty (also a Falun Gong practitioner, who was sentenced to 12 years in prison) will be able to come back home. Every day, he is longing to be with his father again.
