(Clearwisdom.net) At approximately 5:00 p.m. on May 4, 2009, my mother was hit by a car while walking her grandson back home from kindergarten in Jinan City, Shandong Province.
As they walked along the road, a car, which came from behind them, knocked my mother over, and the car's front wheel ran over her right foot. Her grandson was lucky, as he threw himself out of the way onto the grass, and the car only grazed his face.
The driver immediately stopped the car to see if they were all right, and kept saying, "I'm sorry, it is all my fault. How do you feel? Let me take you to a hospital." My mother slowly got up from the ground and said, "I'm OK. You can leave now. I am a Falun Dafa practitioner. Teacher will protect me." Then my mother clarified the truth about Falun Dafa to the driver, and also told her, "Every day you should recite 'Falun Dafa is good' and 'Truthfulness-Benevolence-Forbearance is good'. When disaster comes, you will be saved. Don't forget to tell your family, and tell them to say these words, so they can also be saved."
The driver understood what my mother told her and said, "It seems to me that it will work if you really believe in it." My mother replied, "It definitely works. The propaganda on TV and in the media are all lies." My mother and her grandson then continued to walk back home.
When my younger brother and his wife got back home from work, they saw their son's grazed face and immediately asked what had happened. My mother then told them about the car accident, but before she could finish speaking, my brother started to criticize her, "What do you think you are doing? How dare you say that you practice Falun Dafa openly in public. Besides, you may have a broken foot. You must go to a hospital to check it out. It will cause you pain if it is broken, and the bones will not set right. Why do you think it was good to let the driver go so easily? Tomorrow we must go to the hospital to get an x-ray."
My mother replied, "The driver did not run over my foot on purpose, so I have no reason to blame her. Don't worry, my foot doesn't hurt. If I did not have righteous thoughts and went to the hospital, then my foot would have really been broken. If the driver then paid for the hospital fees, you'd have the trouble of taking care of me, while I'd have to suffer the pain. Anyway, I think I am fine and only believe in Teacher and Dafa."
My brother and his wife had read Zhuan Falun before and knew a little about it. After listening to my mother, they no longer insisted on sending her to the hospital, but they still remained dubious about it.
That evening, my mother's foot was very swollen and she was in a lot of pain. She dared not walk on it and had difficulty sleeping as well. But she convinced herself that everything would be OK. She lay in bed and listened to Teacher's lectures until she finally fell asleep. The next morning, my mother continued to study the Fa. She looked inside and sent forth righteous thoughts. In the afternoon, my father wanted to help her go to the bathroom, but my mother sent out one thought, "I am a practitioner, I will not accept this persecution, I'll walk on my own." So she asked my father to find her a stick for her to walk with.
On the morning of the third day, my mother sent out another thought, "I should negate this problem completely, and not walk with the stick." She then threw the stick away. As a result, she really could walk, but she was dragging her left foot behind her. Then my father said, "You should try to lift your foot when you walk." My mother realized that these were actually Teacher's words trying to encourage her, so she bravely lifted her left foot and slowly began to walk properly.
My mother was now able to walk normally again, because she strongly believed in Teacher and the Fa. Family members and relatives once again witnessed the miracle and power of Falun Dafa.
Unfortunately, my mother had one thought that was not fully righteous. She thought, "Although I am now able to walk, it is still a little bit sore. It will take at least two weeks for me to completely recover. Thereafter, it really took her more than two weeks to fully recover.
