A Young Practitioner's Diary Entry From July 1999
(Clearwisdom.net) In this troublesome season, Mom disappeared and Dad was under constant monitoring. The 1.1 billion people across the country are disturbed and they can't have peaceful lives. This is what the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) calls "Stability." All I learned is that there was injustice only in the "old society" (before the CCP took over the power). It's beyond my imagination that today the injustice is much broader and much more severe. The authorities blindly label good citizens as evil, forming an "illegal organization" and arresting them at will. Why do they arrest those who follow the principle of "Truthfulness-Benevolence-Forbearance" while ignoring the true criminals?
The beginning of the lonely life: At 4 a.m. yesterday, I was suddenly awakened from my sleep by some voices, and then I heard a vehicle leaving. Mom was gone. All day long I was looking forward to seeing her. At night, she didn't return, either. One more day has passed now, but I still don't have any information about her whereabouts. No Mom, no happiness. No Mom, no love. Without Mom, all I have are the loneliness and the worries. When looking at the empty chair, my appetite is totally lost...
Mom, please endure! I'm sure you will survive the atrocity. I'm looking forward to seeing you!
Lately Dad also became painfully silent and he couldn't sleep or eat well. Tonight even Dad didn't come back. Mom and Dad, I'm so desperately looking forward to seeing both of you coming home.
