Story I: "When Can Master Li Come Back?!"

Today at work, when I was chatting with some coworkers about the current chaotic situation in China, a coworker in his 60s said, "Now no one will trust what the Communist Party says. What they say is nonsense, not even one sentence they say is true. Everything is made up to fool the people." The 30-year-old chief engineer standing next to him said, "Compared to them, I think Falun Dafa's Master Li is truly capable. Look, no matter what kind of a person someone is, once he starts practicing Falun Dafa, he immediately changes and becomes a good person."

The older coworker continued, "Several years ago, we had over a dozen people doing the Falun Dafa exercises right outside of the entrance gate of our factory. Later, these practitioners were forced into brainwashing camps. One of the practitioners who was arrested said, 'Before practicing Falun Dafa, I had such a hot temper that nobody dared to bother me. Now, after taking up the practice, I do not fight back even when I am beaten or sworn at. Everyone notices how I have changed. So how can the reason you need to brainwash us be that Falun Dafa is not good for us?' What he said made even the team leader of the brainwashing program take notice and he responded, 'We all know what you are talking about. What we are doing is not what we want to do, but what we are forced to do by our superiors.'"

I told them about some of the examples of persecution of Falun Dafa practitioners by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), and they all listened quietly. When I finished talking, the chief engineer sighed and said, "When can Master Li come back! Currently China is really hopeless!"

Story II: "Now a Lot of People Know Falun Dafa Is Good"

Whenever I have troubles in my life, such as conflicts with my spouse or problems with work, I always like to confide in a friend who practices Falun Dafa. This Dafa practitioner always guides me through my situation using the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. We discuss issues related to retribution. After listening to her, the cloud over my head disappears, my heart feels lighter, and I am refreshed. Thus, I agree with the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, and I use them as a guide in my daily life.

Yesterday, I met a former classmate of my son's who is now in his 20s. I haven't seen him for years. With the attitude of an elder generation caring for the younger, I asked him about his life. He is now working in a metropolitan area in the south and is doing well at his job. He talked happily and openly with me, telling me what he wished to achieve in the future. During our conversation, he mentioned to me several times, "Auntie, I feel that what you are saying is really good. I like to listen to your advice." I then asked him, "Have you ever heard of Falun Dafa? Falun Dafa teaches people to be truthful, compassionate and forbearing. These three words are really good. While you are working away from your hometown by yourself, you should treat others with honesty and kindness, and do things with forbearance. When your parents cannot be around you daily, aside from doing a good job, you need to take good care of yourself." He understood and responded, "Now a lot of people know Falun Dafa is good!"

Story III: The People of China Do Not Support the CCP Forcing People to Join the Young Pioneers and the Youth League

At the present time in China, almost all the schools are forcing students to wear red scarves. This mandate hails from the top level of government authorities. Any disobedience to this rule will result in disciplinary actions such as floor sweeping, being smacked on the palm of the hand, hand-copying books, or even not being allowed to go to classes.

After reading the headline news on October 16, 2011, "One Red Scarf Took Away the Life of a Seven Year Old Boy" in Huaxi Metropolitan News, many teachers do not agree with the red scarf wearing ritual. Some teachers in one school in Sichuan Province told their students, "We cannot do anything as long as the CCP is in control. We are all forced into following this mandate."

Some middle school teachers in Sichuan Province have to report all the names of those students in their classes who have not joined the Youth League yet. Others fill out the applications for these students, then make the students join the Youth League in a group. These students have no other choice but to declare their withdrawals from the Youth League right afterwards.

About 80% of the teachers in a school in Szechuan acknowledge that Falun Dafa is good. Some of them said, “Once the CCP is gone, we are going to practice Falun Dafa, too.”
