610 Office Worker Expresses Gratitude to a Falun Gong Practitioner
(Minghui.org) The persecution of Falun Gong has persisted for 14 years, but Falun Gong has persevered. In fact, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), has started showing signs of collapse due to people's negative reaction to its corruption and crimes against humanity. Awaking from the CCP deceptive propaganda, more people have become supportive of Falun Gong practitioners and their efforts to end the persecution. The following are but a few examples.
610 Officer Worker Thanks a Falun Gong Practitioner
(From China) Elderly practitioner Lian was arrested and sent to a detention center for talking to people about the persecution of Falun Gong. A 610 Office employee went to talk to Lian in the detention center. When Lian told him about the crimes that the CCP had committed, the worker said, “I am aware of all that.” In fact, he had read Zhuan Falun eight times, and had been following the latest news on the Minghui website.
Lian told him that he was lucky to be able to read articles on the Minghui website, with easier access than everyday people. The 610 Office is able to bypass the Internet censorship. She also told him to withdraw from the CCP and its organizations if he wanted to avoid misfortune. The 610 Office agent couldn't agree more. At the end of their conversation, he made a respectful Buddhist gesture by pressing both palms together and said to Lian, “Thank you.”
A Police Persecutor Repents
(From Guizhou Province) In Guizhou Province, several practitioners ran into a police officer when they were talking to people about the persecution of Falun Gong and withdrawing from the CCP. The officer agreed with what the practitioners said, and replied, “I am now convinced that good will be rewarded with good, and bad with bad. I mistreated Falun Gong practitioners before, and now something is wrong with my legs. They hurt so badly that I can no longer walk as before, and I had to stop working. I know my wrongdoings have caused this, but I don't know what to do now. Can I recover?”
One practitioner told him compassionately, “You need to clearly understand the evil nature of the CCP and the injustice of the Falun Gong persecution. You should stop participating in the persecution, withdraw from the CCP, and repent for your mistakes.”
The officer withdrew from the CCP and its affiliated organizations. He said that he would no longer persecute Falun Gong practitioners, and would protect them. He also accepted a Shen Yun DVD.
Upholding Justice Makes a Difference
(From Hebei Province) The following took place in the city of Handan, Hebei Province. Upon learning that some of their employees were Falun Gong practitioners, their supervisors had varying attitudes. One supervisor was protective, because he understood that Falun Gong practitioners were good people and the persecution was unjust, “I know someone who improved his bad temper after practicing Falun Gong, and his family was very happy about that. Falun Gong is good for the body and health, and our constitution protects religious freedom.” Moreover, he and his family members had all withdrawn from the CCP and its organizations.
A few years ago, the supervisor was not feeling well and was taken to a hospital. His Falun Gong employees went to visit him and brought him a copy of Zhuan Falun and some Dafa materials to read. Fifteen days later he was released without any problems, and he has been healthy ever since. Not long afterward, his son was accepted by a coveted university, which made his entire family very happy.
Li Guihong is an example of the opposite attitude. After becoming the director of Handan City Police Station in April 2003, he worked closely with Zhou Guojiang, former Political and Legal Affairs Committee secretary, and Cao Zhixia, director of the local 610 Office, to actively persecute Falun Gong practitioners. They ordered police officers to carry out surveillance, stalking, and wiretapping of practitioners. As a result, many have been arrested and sent to brainwashing centers, mental hospitals, detention centers, forced labor camps, and prisons.
Li Guihong was later dismissed from his position due to a political power struggle. To get over his depression, he went to Shanghai on a trip. While he was there, he had a brain hemorrhage. After a week of emergency treatment including an open-skull surgery, his life was saved, but he lost the ability to speak, and suffered from a mental disorder, including frequent crying without reason.
"You Are in Luck--They are Decent People"
(From Jiangsu Province) This is a story from the city of Zhenjiang, Jiangsu Province. In early April, young practitioner Zhang was riding an electric bicycle running errands. Her 60-year-old mother was sitting on the rear seat. They were hit by a car, but no one was severely hurt. Upon arriving at the accident scene, a traffic officer took pictures and carried out the usual investigation. He concluded that the driver of the car was fully responsible for the accident.
Serving as a mediator between the driver and Zhang and her mother, the officer asked the mother and daughter how much money they wanted for compensation, and whether they needed to be seen at a hospital. To his surprise, Zhang said, “We are fine. We don't need any compensation from the driver. You can let him go.”
“Why do you let him go without asking for compensation?” the officer asked, “Is the driver a relative of yours?”
Zhang replied, “I started practicing Falun Gong last year, and my Teacher advises us to put ourselves in other people's shoes. The driver didn't hit us on purpose. It's all right to let him go.”
After being in shock for several seconds, the officer turned to the driver and said, “You are in luck today. The people you hit are very decent people.”
