Mr. Lopez said that people would live in harmony if each other's cultures were understood.

He mentioned that the performance about the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners was touching. He said indignantly, "Those thugs persecuting Falun Gong practitioners are inhumane. Anyone with any humanity would not do that."

Ruben is a Spanish descendant. He said that earlier generations of Spanish people were like Chinese people in respecting the elderly and caring for the young, "Earlier generations of Spanish people have big families with grandparents and grandchildren in the same family. People didn't drive old people out of the family. Chinese people could not do it. But now society has changed. People don't behave like that."

He said, "The message in the show is important. Human beings should be kind, sincere and respectful of each other."

Chinese Culture is Attracting
