Bringing the Beauty of Dafa to the Motorist Who Accidentally Hit My Husband
(Minghui.org) One day my husband came back from a visit to a public bath house. He told me, “I met a good person today. At the bath house a young man warned me that I should be careful, as the floor was slippery. He assisted me in walking all the way down the hall. The man was so polite and said that he had been thinking of visiting me. It sounded as if he knew me, but I could not remember who he was. Later, I met him again. He came to chat with me and wanted to buy me a gift.” My husband then suddenly remembered that this man was Mr. Yang, the driver of the car that had hit him.
Accidentally Hit by a Car
The accident happened on the evening of January 9, 2010. My husband was outside, dumping trash. After quite a while he slowly walked back into the house and told me he had just been hit by a car. Although he looked shocked, I did not see any injuries and even his clothes appeared neat and clean. I said, “ Quick, ask Master for help, recite 'Falun Dafa is good' and 'Truth-Compassion-Forbearance is good.'” He nodded and said he knew how to recite these sentences, as he did so quite often. I helped him to sit down in a chair.
My husband told me that after he emptied the garbage can, he was standing close to the sidewalk talking with our young neighbor. Suddenly a new van hit him and threw him more than four meters away. There was a loud sound and the garbage can flew into the air. My husband fell and lost consciousness. Both the neighbor and the driver were so shocked that they were unable to move at first. The driver could not get out of his car for quite awhile. A bystander rushed over and saw my husband, a 60-year-old man, lying on the ground motionless. The lights on the right side of the car were broken.
The Power of Dafa Displayed
After several minutes my husband regained consciousness. He heard the voice of the neighbor, Mr. Wang, and asked him for help getting up. Mr. Wang bent down and said to my husband, “Don't get up so soon. You may be injured.” My husband insisted Mr. Wang help him up, and as he stood, he felt he could walk. Then, his next thought was that nothing serious had occurred and he asked the young neighbor with whom he had been chatting to support him and walk him home.
Soon the driver and his uncle and our neighbors came into our home. The driver's uncle kept apologizing and the driver insisted upon taking my husband to the hospital. All the neighbors advised my husband to go to the hospital for a check up. My husband shook his head. I told everyone not to force him and let him calm down. The young neighbor angrily blamed the driver and said, “It was all your fault. We were chatting and you hit him. Tomorrow you must bring 20,000 yuan for medical costs, and bring some gifts too. We will see how much it will cost you!” The frightened driver timidly agreed.
I told the young neighbor he could leave now and not to worry, that my husband was fine. I said, “If he had been killed in the accident what would be the use of money? The driver did not hit him intentionally. You saw how frightened the driver was. It's OK.” I gently pushed the young man out. Then I said to the driver, “You can go home. The young man was very angry and you don't need to take what he said seriously. My husband will be fine. We believe in doing good deeds and we won't ask you for a penny.” The driver relaxed a little. He left his cell phone number and said sincerely, “Please call me right away if you don't feel well.”
"Good or evil comes from that instant thought. If she were lying down there claiming, 'Ugh, I feel terrible. Something is wrong here and there.' Then, her bones might really have been fractured, and she would be paralyzed. No matter how much money she was paid, how could she be comfortable being hospitalized for the rest of her life? Those bystanders even found it strange that the elderly woman did not exploit him and ask him for money. Nowadays, human moral values have been distorted. The driver indeed drove the car too fast, but how could he possibly hit someone on purpose?" (Zhuan Falun)
Driver Grateful for Good People
The driver called us later that night. From his trembling voice I could hear that he was still frightened and worried. He offered again to take my husband to the hospital. I repeatedly told him that everything would be fine.
The next day the driver and his wife came to visit us with gifts. The driver looked very tired. He looked carefully at my husband who was sitting on the sofa watching TV. I could see the couple felt remorseful. I told them, “My husband is really fine, so don't worry. I am a Falun Dafa practitioner and we practice Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. When one person practices Falun Dafa, the whole family benefits. My husband has benefited from my practice.”
The driver relaxed and smiled. His wife told us that they were so scared that they did not sleep at all last night, as they had just bought a new van and were already involved in an accident. They felt fortunate that they had encountered good people. Otherwise they would have felt afraid for their future.
I smiled, “If we wanted to extort money from you, you would not have had enough to pay us off, even if you sold your new van.” The driver agreed. His wife held my hands and said repeatedly, “We really met good people. We are so grateful!” I told them that it was my Master who taught us to be good people and always think of others first. If you would like to thank someone, please thank my Master.
I proceeded to explain to them about Falun Dafa. When I told them that the "self- immolation" incident was fake, the wife opened her eyes widely and said, “Is that so. I finally found out the truth of this incident today! Falun Dafa is really teaching people to do good deeds.”
After they understood that Falun Dafa was good, the couple withdrew from the Chinese Communist Party's Youth League and Young Pioneers. They left our home with truth-clarification materials about Falun Dafa and the persecution, and promised that they would read them carefully upon returning home.
