“Falun Gong Practitioners Are My Heroes”
(Minghui.org) Yesterday, I had a nice conversation at the bus stop with a young man in his early thirties.
The following is a brief recap of that conversation:
Me: “Which bus are you waiting for?”
Young man: “I am waiting for bus No 3.”
Me: “Have you heard about the movement of quitting the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliates?”
Young Man: “Do you practice Falun Gong?”
Me: “Yes, I do.”
Young Man: “Well, I must applaud Falun Gong. I was once involved in filing a group grievance to the authorities in Beijing. The police arrested us and then sent us to a detention center. There were four people in the cell with us, and they were all people who practiced Falun Gong. I heard the police tell those four that they could go home after they verbally promised to stop practicing. Yet they stood their ground and would not agree—they are my heroes. And actually, it is inevitable that Jiang Zemin (the former Chinese dictator who launched the persecution of Falun Gong in 1999) will go to jail, and that Falun Gong will be exonerated by the government.”
At this point, I asked him if he had ever joined the CCP in any capacity. He said he had joined, but he was happy to quit right then.
I Will Say It Aloud!
A short while ago, I convinced another young man to withdraw from the CCP. I told him to quietly repeat, “Falun Dafa is Great; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is Great,” which could turn his misfortunes into blessings.
“Why be quiet about it?” he said. “I will say it loud and clear!”
Then he did just that, and in a loud, clear voice for all to hear, he exclaimed, “Falun Dafa is Great—Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is Great!”
