Falun Gong practitioners in Chicago celebrate the upcoming May 13 World Falun Dafa Day
Many people have began cultivation practice since Falun Dafa was introduced to Chicago in 1995, and enjoyed improved health and uplifted spirits. Local governments have given numerous awards to Falun Dafa for its contribution, and passed several resolutions to support Falun Gong's anti-persecution campaign. Master Li received an excellent service award from the State of Illinois, and the Mayor of Chicago declared June 25, 1999 to be "Master Li Hongzhi Day."
Falun Gong practitioners' morning exercises with beautiful music attracted many people to this peaceful scene. Practitioners distributed introductory materials. After the exercises, a group photo was taken with a banner reading, “Celebrate May 13th, World Falun Dafa Day.” Practitioners said in one voice, “Falun Dafa is great! Falun Dafa is spread around the world.”
