Two Principals, Two Different Outcomes
(Minghui.org) An old Chinese saying goes, “Good will be rewarded and evil will be punished.” Some people in China are not able to distinguish good from evil because they have been deceived and brainwashed by the Chinese Communist Party propaganda over the last 60 years.
Without knowing the facts, they passively or actively participate in the unlawful persecution of Falun Gong practitioners and eventually receive karmic retribution. Others have come to understand Falun Gong. They treat Falun Gong practitioners kindly and bring good fortune to themselves as a result. The following are accounts of two school principals from the south who experienced two very different outcomes.
Xie Jiacheng was the principal of Youjiang District Vocational School (formerly Baise City Third Middle School) in Baise City, Guangxi Province.
In the evening on August 2, 2004, Xie took police officers Huang Zhifeng, Huang Yi, Huang Shaoqiang, Huang Hanquan, Yang Yi, Lu Minchi, and Tan Bin from Youjiang Police Station of Baise Police Department to the home of Mr. He Zhi, a teacher at Baise City Third Middle School and a Falun Gong practitioner. Xie knocked at the door and Mr. He opened it. The police then broke in and searched Mr. He's home. They illegally arrested him, and the Youjiang District Court sentenced him to eight years in prison. He Zhi was ultimately tortured to death in Litang Prison in Guangxi Province on April 8, 2009.
Soon after Mr. He Zhi was sentenced, Principal Xie contracted lung cancer. Some people told him that he was now reaping retribution for what he had done. They told him the facts about Falun Gong, and he was filled with regret. Despite his poor health, he took the long distance bus and went to see Mr. He in prison. Mr. Xie was in tears when he saw his colleague being persecuted in prison, but he could do nothing.
Several months later, Mr. Xie's health deteriorated and he was not able to get up. His Falun Gong friends told him to recite, “Falun Dafa is good, Truth-Compassion-Forbearance is good” to alleviate the pain. He said that he felt very sorry and very guilty, and that he was not worthy of saying those words. He kept saying to himself, “Why did Old Jiang (he was referring to Jiang Zemin) start the persecution of Falun Gong?”
Some people told him their personal experiences of how they recovered from poor health after practicing Falun Gong. They asked him to give it a try. They told him that Falun Gong was a cultivation way of the Buddha school with its core principles of Truth-Compassion-Forbearance and has amazing results in curing illnesses and keeping fit. He was very afraid of the CCP and also felt very guilty about Mr. He. He didn't pick up Falun Gong even though he knew in his heart that Falun Gong was good. He soon passed away.
Li Ming (a pseudonym to protect his safety) is also a school principal in southern China. There are quite a few Falun Gong practitioners in his school. He knows them well and was impressed by their kindness and high moral standards. When officers from the 610 Office and the Public Security Department came to his school, he warned the practitioners and hid them safely away. When practitioners were detained, he helped their family members to rescue them. When practitioners were unfairly treated financially, he went to see his boss and tried to help them.
The local director of the 610 Office and the Party secretary of the Political and Legal Affairs Committee summoned Mr. Li and said, “You have so many Falun Gong practitioners at your school. Why have you not reported them? Do you still want to be the principal?” He tried to explain, saying, “The Falun Gong practitioners at our school are very good and have done a good job. Every one of them is a model teacher. The operation of the school depends on them. What would you really have me do?”
On the way home, Mr. Li kept thinking to himself, “If they won't let me be the principal, then I will quit. I would never persecute those practitioners. I will not do anything against my conscience.” Mr. Li was soon removed from his position as principal at the school, but he was promoted to a section chief and was also very successful in a business venture.
He felt that there must be for a reason for his good fortune and asked a practitioner about it. The practitioner said, “Do you know that saying, 'Good will be rewarded?' You treated Falun Gong practitioners well and protected them. That was a good deed and you were rewarded.”
