(Clearwisdom.net) Some practitioners around me are steadfast in their belief in Master and Dafa. They have let go of life and death and are very diligent in their cultivation during the Fa-rectification.

Practitioner A is fifty-five years old and used to work for the government. He is a university graduate and clearly understands the principles of Dafa. His faith in Dafa is also steadfast like steel. Before July 20, 1999, he took care of a practice site in the city and was thus targeted for persecution by the CCP. In the year 2000, they illegally arrested and incarcerated him at the infamous No. 1 Forced Labor Camp in Gansu Province. He was put in the No. 2 team and did not cooperate with the demands of the evil guards. Thus they hung him up for seven days until he was on the brink of death, and only then did they take him down. Based on steadfast righteous thoughts, he managed to escape within two months.

In September 2008, authorities kidnapped him and took him again to the forced labor camp in Gansu Province. There he was shouted at, and replied, "What I am doing is the most righteous task in the world. I did not break any laws and I should not be here. You are not worthy enough to shout at me." The second day, authorities ordered him to wear a badge identifying him as a prisoner, but he immediately broke it. Guards Han Ximing and Wang Chengli locked him up and instigated four criminals, Sun Hongtao, Ma Ping, Chen Jungang, and Luo Jianyun, to take turns and they beat him all night long. The tow guards also personally beat him. A few days later, they had injured the lining of his stomach and his life was in danger. He was then sent to a hospital. While he was in the hospital, policemen tried to force him to write the so called three statements declaring that he will give up his belief in Falun Gong. However, he did not cooperate and was still released. After he returned home, he looked inwards and had learned his lesson about this incident. He eliminated his attachments and quickly joined the ranks of Fa-rectification.

Practitioner B, a farmer, sixty-eight years old, started cultivating Dafa in 1996. She is illiterate and studied the Fa by listening to the audio tapes and watching the lecture videos. Even though she is uneducated, her righteous thoughts are strong. She gave up everything and followed the arrangements of Master and is very steadfast. When she experienced financial difficulties, she did odd jobs, such as picking up almond shells, dried day lilies and sold them in order to earn some money for making truth-clarification materials. She also walked instead of taking public transportation to distribute the materials. This practitioner also frequently brought her own lunch when she went to far away villages to distribute materials. Thus she endured the hardships of long arduous journeys and walked many kilometers in one day. In December 2000, she sold some food stock in her house and went to Beijing to validate Falun Gong. She was illegally detained six times and taken to a forced labor camp twice, but managed to escape with righteous thoughts. While in the camp, she did not write any guarantee statements and never signed nor put her thumb print on any documents. In August 2008, before the Olympic Games were held in China, the police kidnapped her and took her to a labor camp. Evil policemen noticed her arrival and told the police who escorted her, "This person does not listen to instructions, we will not accept her here." This practitioner had no fear, neither did she have a heart of differentiation. Whenever she met someone, she always regarded that person as someone with a predestined relationship, and clarified the truth to them. She also frequently went to different levels of the politics and law committee and the police to demand the release of all practitioners who are illegally incarcerated. She used this opportunity to clarify the truth to the people working there. She really reversed her role and took the lead in this great historical drama.

Practitioner C, now forty years old, was a teacher and started her cultivation in 1996. She has various talents and is very virtuous, as well as very capable and down to earth. She is extremely diligent and easily coordinates and cooperates with others. Thus, she influenced and helped the whole body to improve. Before the persecution started in 1999, she coordinated a practice site in a county. She started to memorize the Fa in 1998, and could recite Zhuan Falun, Hong Yin and other articles. She went to Beijing to validate Dafa twice and was illegally detained three times. On two occasions, she was incarcerated in a forced labor camp for a total of four years. Later, she managed to escape with righteous thoughts. She coordinated and individually participated in many Fa-rectification tasks. Every month, she uses part of her salary for projects that offer salvation to people. In the year 2006, she bought equipment and created a material preparation site. During every winter and summer holidays, she goes to each and every village and distributes truth-clarification materials. She also coordinated an effort in which fellow practitioners went together to distribute these materials in the surrounding counties and cities where no practitioners were residing. Therefore, they could cover a huge area. Some time ago, officials from the domestic security team and the police station tried to plot against and persecute her. She wrote to the relevant work units and clarified the truth to them right away. And at the same time, she sued the police station for conducting illegal actions and used righteous thoughts and actions to fundamentally dissolve the persecution against her. Ten days later, she went back to work in an above board manner. In this Fa-rectification she let go of her human attachments and became more and more mature.
