(Minghui.org) In recent years, more and more people in China have come to a better understanding of how good Falun Gong really is. Even after 16 years of negative government propaganda, many understand the essence of this traditional cultivation practice. Falun Gong has received support from people from all walks of life in China, despite the severe persecution. Three short stories follow:
One day I sat next to an older gentleman on the bus. I talked to him about Falun Gong and the millions of people quitting the Chinese Communist Party. He said that he'd had to join the Communist Youth League, but always refused to join the Party itself.
“I don't agree with the Party—its ideology and the way it rules the country,” he told me. I asked if he would like me to help him to quit the Youth League. He was glad to have the chance.
He said, “I know about Falun Gong. I even bought a Falun Gong book from an antique store, and I read it every now and then.
“There were so many Falun Gong practitioners before the persecution started. I talked to my friends about why Falun Gong grew so fast and attracted so many people. The answer was simple—because Falun Gong touches hearts.”
I replied, “Yes, and this is why Falun Gong has spread to every corner of the world.”
In July 2015, our local post office received an order from upper management forbidding the delivery of criminal complaints against former communist head Jiang Zemin. These criminal complaints are being filed by hundreds of thousands of Chinese for Jiang's role in the persecution of Falun Gong.
I went to the post office to mail my complaint after the order was issued. I expected some trouble, but the process was surprisingly different than what I thought it would be.
I said to the postal staff that I need to send my complaint to the Supreme Court in Beijing via express mail. He looked at my package and said, “Don't worry. I will help you. This is something big!”
I was then embarrassed to realize that I was one yuan short for the postage. The staff member said to me sincerely, “It's OK. I won't stop you because of this one yuan. This is something important. I promise you that your complaint will be sent out.”
I was surprised and touched. Three days later, I got the receipt from the Supreme Court.
I learned that in our area, many practitioners have received help from the postal staff when mailing their complaints, even though every post office received the order forbidding the complaints, and even posted the order on their walls.
Two Falun Gong practitioners went to a farmer's market in Cangxian County, Hebei Province, on November 20, 2015. They planned to distribute Falun Gong informational materials and talk to people about Falun Gong and the persecution.
When they were talking to a group of people, a man who appeared to be in his fifties ran towards them shouting, “I know who you are and what you're doing. Wait for me!”
It had just snowed, and the road was slippery. He could not run fast. But clearly he was worried that the practitioners would leave before he reached them, so he kept shouting for their attention.
“Give me some materials! Give some to me. It has been a long time since I got Falun Gong materials!”
“Here you go. When was the last time you received Falun Gong materials?” a practitioner asked.
“It was two weeks ago, and two weeks is a long time. I can't wait that long!”
