The Story of Little Yu Xin
(Clearwisdom.net) Yu Xin was born on July 21, 2000. He is fortunate to have both of his parents as Falun Dafa practitioners. However, like thousands of other families of Falun Dafa practitioners, Yu Xin's family has been persecuted ever since he was born. In October 1999 when Yu Xin's mother was just pregnant, the local township government attempted to force her to have an abortion, because "as a Falun Dafa practitioner, she must undergo forced abortion," as the authorities put it. To uphold her belief and to avoid the persecution and abortion, she was forced to leave her home. Yu Xin's life was fortunately saved.
The persecution against Falun Dafa had lasted one year when Yu Xin was born. Even in his infancy, Yu Xin was well behaved. When his father played the audio recording of Master Li's lectures, he quietly listened. He smiled when showed Master Li's picture. When taught "Hongyin" while he was learning to speak, he managed to recite it.
On April 25, 2001, the township authorities and officers at the local police station again escalated the persecution of Falun Dafa practitioners. Some policemen crossed the brick fence and entered the backyard of Yu Xin's home. They grabbed the eight-month-old Yu Xin from his mother's arms, and carried away the baby and his mother. On the way to the municipal building, Yu Xin did not cry at all. Finally the officers returned him back to his mother when they entered the building.
One after another, persecution and fines forced Yu Xin's father to close his already slipping business and drove his family to live an even harsher life. Yet his parents tried to save every penny to print truth-clarification literature. As a result, unlike other children, little Yu Xin could not enjoy delicious food or nice-looking clothes. While little Yu Xin often cried for meat and other practitioners tried to persuade his parents to feed the baby well, the family could only afford a little meat every few months.
On July 20, 2001, Yu Xin's mother finally bought some pork to make dumplings for Yu Xin. She had hardly finished wrapping the dumplings when the police came again. To protect her husband, Yu Xin's mother took the child to his grandma's home. Still Yu Xin's Mom wasn't able to escape abduction by the police. Led by Li Fuchang and Chang Wangui from the local government, the authorities opened Yu Xin's grandma's door and illegally arrested Yu Xin's mother. Right after his first birthday, Little Yu Xin once again lost his mother.
Betrayed by an acquaintance, Yu Xin's father was also arrested and taken to a brainwashing center during the wheat-harvesting season of 2004. With the help of his fellow practitioners' righteous thoughts and Master Li's protection, Yu Xin's father managed to walk out of the brainwashing session. The police did not give up. They waited at Yu Xin's home. Unable to return home, Yu Xin's parents once again were forced to live a homeless life. Left behind were their elderly parents and little Yu Xin, who was barely four years old.
On September 1, 2005, when Yu Xin went to pre-kindergarten, his teacher instructed him to buy pencils, notebooks, pencil sharpeners, and a pencil box. "Shall we buy a pencil box?" When his Mom asked him, Yu Xin said, "Why shall we buy a pencil box? Can't we just use the one my Auntie used before? Let's just save the money." Staring at the old and rusty pencil box, Yu Xin's parents were moved to tears.
Witnessing how his parents talked to others about the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party and how they persuaded others to quit their communist party memberships, Yu Xin, too, talked to his little friends and his teacher about it. In addition, he gave Falun emblems to them.
On October 9, 2005, the 610 Office of the county launched another round of arrests of Falun Dafa practitioners. The authorities planned to fill the brainwashing class with thirty practitioners. Once again, Yu Xin's parents were on the list. Fortunately, with some helpers, they managed to walk away. Again Yu Xin lived only with his grandparents. "Yu Xin, don't you think your life is too bitter?" asked his mother who came back to see him. "Not at all. Practice well and follow the Teacher to return home. Only this way, evil won't get you!" Little Yu Xin responded firmly. Staring at her child who was evidently much more mature than his peers, Yu Xin's mother was again moved to tears.
Yu Xin has had five birthdays. On just one of the birthdays however, was his mother able to buy him a small piece of birthday cake with two yuan.
