(Minghui.org) Three Michigan state representatives and one senator issued special tributes to Falun Dafa recently, in honor of the twenty-third anniversary of Dafa's public introduction.

State Representative Kristy Pagan of the Twenty-First District stated in her special tribute, "Falun Dafa is a peaceful spiritual practice rooted in traditional Chinese culture that consists of meditation, five gentle sets of exercises, and a moral philosophy centered on the values of truthfulness, compassion, and tolerance. It is these values that Falun Dafa practitioners take as a guide to their daily lives. Since 1992, over one hundred million people worldwide have become healthier, happier, and more altruistic through their practice of Falun Dafa.”
