To the Falun Dafa Association of Colorado:
Thank you for your invitation to attend the Falun Dafa Association’s rally to end persecution in China. Events like this are vital, and remind us of the rights we hold so dear in this country, particularly freedom of expression and personal liberty. While I was not able to attend, I extend my support to the Falun Gong, and to all persecuted people around the world.
People throughout the world should be allowed to practice their beliefs without government intervention, injunction or persecution. However, practitioners of Falun Gong have been persecuted for their way of life and philosophy, one based on Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance. As a country that was first settled by persecuted minorities, it is vital that we continue to defend basic freedom wherever they are threatened.
Thank you for your invitation and your continued fight to defend the fundamental rights of all people.
