After Watching 'False Fire' Video, My Coworker Felt Cheated
(Minghui.org) My coworker told me she had a fight with her husband and that she had hit and cursed him. Her husband later said, “You should learn Falun Gong from your friend at work (me). Falun Gong practitioners don't curse or fight. How nice that is!”
Embarrassed, my coworker said to me, “I'll need to learn tolerance from you. Cursing people is not a good thing to do.”
After she understood how beneficial practicing Falun Gong is, she helped her whole family quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations.
I told her husband about how Falun Gong improves people's hearts and minds. Her husband understood that the Dafa principles are honorable and told me to stay safe.
He traveled abroad last year and witnessed people outside of China practicing Falun Gong.
My coworker and I worked at a convenience store. Every year she bought the Falun Gong table calendars and gave them to her relatives and friends. When she got Falun Gong brochures in the mail, she would bring them to me. She was good about reminding me to be a diligent practitioner.
When I received the video “False Fire” on my phone, I sent it to her and other friends. I had previously told her what had really happened during the Tiananmen self-immolation, but she hadn't seen the video explaining how the communist regime had staged the incident.
While watching the video, she affirmed all she saw. “Right, if the guy was burned so badly, why wasn't his hair singed?” she said. “And why wasn't the plastic soda bottle melted by the flames? Won't gasoline explode when it comes into contact with fire? His sitting position is different from yours. Why wasn't there a single tourist present at the time? Oh, that woman was beaten to death...”
After watching the video, she was emotional and said she felt the government propaganda had deceived her. “Isn't that cheating?” she said. “That was planted.”
“If people believe the government's lies and are against Falun Gong, that would be dangerous for them,” I said. “There are many people who haven't watched the video and don't know the truth. If you can forward it to more people, more may be awakened. That would be a great thing to do.”
Even before I finished talking, she had forwarded the video to her friends. She said she would let her son and his friends watch it, too. People would no longer be fooled after finding out about the hoax. If her friend’s friends forwarded the video to their friends, even more people would know the truth and be awakened. I was deeply moved by what she did.
Later on, when I was detained for practicing Falun Gong, my coworkers all maintained a positive attitude toward Falun Gong. After I was released, I went to the store and asked the owner if I was in trouble for being arrested. He replied, “You worked diligently and dutifully. I wish I had more practitioners working here. Don't worry. Next time I'll look out for your safety.”
I lost my job while I was detained. For some time I had very little money. All my former coworkers asked if I needed financial help. The store owner even gave me 2,000 yuan to cover any emergencies. He told me, “You can pay me back whenever you can. We trust you.”
I was moved by their concern. Their trust in me meant that they trusted Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and believed that practitioners are good people. Because my former coworkers agreed about the goodness of Falun Gong, I felt truly happy for them.
