Gratitude and Determination
(Clearwisdom.net) Around May 13, 2010, just like every other May 13, Minghui website received a lot of greeting cards and letters, wishing Master Li Hongzhi happy birthday and celebrating World Falun Dafa Day. This year more that six thousand greetings were published on the Minghui website. Aside from those received from Falun Gong practitioners in Europe, Asia, America, Australia, and other continents, most of the messages were from China. These greetings came from Falun Gong practitioners of all ages and from every city and province, including from the military system, government departments, education system, and many other professions, as well as from non-practitioners who are aware of the truth about Falun Gong. Many in China sent their greetings for Master Li's birthday.
In Mainland China, the cruel persecution launched by the communist regime towards Falun Gong is still going on. In order to block the spread of the truth about Falun Gong, the regime still carries out a complete Internet blockade. However, despite such a harsh environment, people from China have still managed to send their greetings to the Minghui website each holiday.
Every greeting card and message is fully loaded with practitioners' sincere wishes. A practitioner from China once wrote down the process when he made the greeting card: "A long time ago, I had the thought to make a greeting card myself and send it to the Minghui website to express my wishes to Master. In the past, I could only ask another practitioner to do it and express the wishes for me. But after I learned how to use computers, I was determined to make one myself. At first, I was still very confused. As I thought about it very hard, I suddenly enlightened. I remembered when a practitioner was teaching others how to make the disc covers, he mentioned the function of screen-shot. Then I found my computer also has this function. And I thought, can I use this to screen-shot a greeting card? So I tried to do it that way, and I finally made the first greeting card by myself. I couldn't help but to put my hands together in the Heshi position, and tears flowed down my cheeks. I thought, "Thank you Master for helping me to realize my wish."
Every carefully designed card reflects sincere wishes. Some of them represent practitioners from a certain region, some represent practitioners from a certain profession, and some represent a Fa-study group, a materials production site, or a family. Although people come from different places with their distinct social status, they express the same feelings: they are grateful to Master, and they are determined to cultivate till the end.
In recent years, the communist regime wanted to "eradicate" Falun Gong at all costs. However, on the 11th World Falun Dafa Day, so many greetings for Master's birthday were sent from around the world, and especially from mainland China. This is the best proof of the complete failure of the CCP's persecution.
