Memory of Christmas
(Clearwisdom.net) On the afternoon of December 24, 2005, after sending forth righteous thoughts, I changed my clothes to go out. I took with me a specially designed truth clarification card, but left my ID card and cell phone behind. The front of the card had a calendar on it and the words "Falun Dafa is good." On the back was a modern truth clarification poem and information about our websites. The card was very colorful. I felt that the modern poem on the back was especially suitable for young people. Besides, Christmas is the season for young people who enjoy going out into the streets, therefore I made about 600 cards to distribute during the Silent Night event. I carried 600 ID-sized cards in a small bag. I had also prepared some CDs for predestined persons and several dozens of different kinds of cards with "safety symbols" on them. I left my house at 6 p.m. and went out into the streets to meet with people.
I went to the old town center in Xian City where many university students usually hang out enjoying themselves on December 24. After 7 p.m. more and more people began to show up. Many were walking in the direction of East Street, South Main Street and the bell tower. I took the bus to South Main Street. By around 8:30 p.m., the concentration of people had reached its peak, and people jostled against each other in the crowd. It was very crowded. I believe on that twenty meter wide street there must have been several thousand people. I began to distribute the truth clarification cards in front of stores on South Main Street. The cards were very visible, and the light in the street was quite good. People who took the cards could easily read the bright and clear words on them that said, "Falun Dafa is Good."
At that time, I was a little bit nervous and worried that there might be some bad people in the area. I watched carefully and noticed that every ten meters there were two to three policemen on duty, and the police cars were everywhere. But I had come here to save sentient beings, to save people! I adjusted my thinking and went to another place. I cleared my mind and felt as though I was a Buddha who came here in order to save sentient beings.
Many people took the cards and read them while walking away. When they realized what it was, many people came back and asked for a few more cards. They said: "Give me a few more, give me a few more!" When some people received the card, they read the words out loud: "Falun Dafa is good." Some others said: "What is it? Falun Gong? Quickly, report it to the police!" When I heard this, I stayed clearheaded and just continued to do what I was doing. So many people had come back to ask for more cards, and they said: "I still have family who could not come today, give me a few more!" Other people who were behind me also wanted some cards, there were easily more then twenty people who circled around me and fought to get a card. I was circled like that many times. I was a little scared when I saw policemen nearby, but they did not come over during the time I was there, which was more than one hour. I believe that they knew what was going on since people made so much noise.
People started to leave after 10 p.m. and it was less crowed on the street. I left with only about one hundred truth clarification cards, and changed to another location while slowly distributing the remaining cards. Three policemen came towards me, but I was not scared, I calmly held the cards. The policemen asked me what was going on. I then gave them truth clarification cards.
I felt really happy on the way home. I experienced a feeling of happiness from the bottom of my heart. I did not really know how many sentient beings had the chance to learn the truth that night! It was really a wonderful Silent Night.
