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.

After the persecution of Falun Gong began in 1999, Ren Qingliang wantonly slandered and attacked Falun Gong. Ren was the former president of the school, who repeatedly held general assemblies to defame Falun Gong. He also cooperated with the officials from the State Security Bureau, the 610 Office, and the police department to arrest Falun Gong practitioners in the school. After the teachers persuaded him that these actions would affect the school's reputation, he dropped the plan. Ren died of lung cancer in September 2002 at age of 52.

Yang Xiaoyan, 42 years old, is the head of the Physical Education Department. After the persecution of Falun Gong began in 1999, she reported to the authorities about teachers practicing Falun Gong and promoting it in school. She thus got promoted. Not long ago, she collapsed from a sudden heart attack. She had heart bypass surgery and has not yet recovered.
