(Minghui.org) There is a Chinese proverb that says that right differs from wrong just like white is the opposite of black. But in the 18 years that Falun Gong has been suppressed in China, the defamatory propaganda generated by the communist party has deceived many, many people and made it hard for them to tell right from wrong.

Due to practitioners' consistent efforts to tell people the facts about Falun Gong and the persecution, many people in China have changed their opinions or at least begun to see the true picture.

Honest Police Officers 

Two practitioners in my city often got out to tell people the facts about Falun Gong. On their way home after visiting a supermarket, a police van stopped them.

One practitioner escaped, but four officers surrounded the other one. When an officer told the practitioner to come with them, the practitioner protested, “I didn't do anything wrong. Why are you arresting me?”

“I know you are innocent,” the officer said, “but someone just reported you and we have to follow procedures. After you get in, we will drive a short distance and then release you.”

“Why should I trust you?” asked the practitioner.

“Here is my ID,” said another officer as he showed his identification. He then pointed nearby and said, “See, the man who reported you is still standing there, watching.”

The practitioner got in the van. After driving a few hundred yards, the police stopped the van and let the practitioner go.

One Choice Makes a Difference

One day when I was taking a walk, I spoke with a man in his 50s. When I asked him if he had heard about quitting the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), he hesitated and did not answer directly.

I talked about how the Party has mistreated people with violence and lies, such as the 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre and the persecution of Falun Gong. “Falun Gong practitioners are innocent. They just want to be healthier and become better people. Anyone who sides with the Party could face serious consequences, both morally and legally.”

When I asked if he had ever joined any CCP organizations in the past, he didn't answer. Instead, he turned and walked away slowly.

After a few minutes, I sensed that someone was following me. I saw that it was the same man. I turned around and walked up to him. When I asked him why he was following me, he looked embarrassed.

“I have a question,” he said. “I once saw a Falun Gong flyer posted on an electrical pole and ripped it off. What do you think of that?”

I explained to him that practitioners did that so that people could know the facts and that those who destroy such informative notices aren't doing themselves any favors.

“No wonder things haven't gone well for me lately,” he said slowly, “What should I do?”

“Write a statement to sincerely apologize and submit it to the Minghui website,” I said. “And do not do that anymore.”

“I will think about it,” he said.
