Editors' Note: In both Western and Chinese culture, the principle of karmic retribution, that is, being held ultimately accountable for one's own actions, is widely accepted. The fundamental teaching of Falun Gong is the characteristic of the universe, "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance." The universe will reward actions that are in harmony with this principle, while actions such as beating, torturing and murdering people will incur karmic retribution. Stated another way, good deeds will be rewarded with good, while evildoings will meet due retribution. Articles such as this one are meant as a compassionate reminder of this principle to those who would commit wrongdoing. While many of those who persecute Falun Gong are merely "following orders," the universal law requires that they too be held responsible for their actions, and that only by reversing their course of wrongdoing may they escape retribution.

Wang Yonglai, male, was a villager living in Liangjiayu Village, Lulong County, Hebei Province. After July 20, 1999, he tried to persuade his son to divorce his daughter-in-law, who practiced Falun Dafa. He said he would not allow his daughter-in-law to interfere with his son joining the CCP and getting promotions. When his daughter-in-law asked him why he was trying to destroy their family, he answered while pounding his chest, "I'd rather die than have the CCP restore Falun Gong's reputation!" He died suddenly at home in May 2003.
