Moving Story of Her Employer’s Son's Detention Makes Neighbor Want to Quit the CCP
(Minghui.org) I have a neighbor whom I had talked with about Falun Dafa some time ago. She was not interested in hearing about it at the time, and did not want to quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
When I met her on the bus at a later date she was unusually friendly. She asked me to sit next to her so that we could talk. “I believe that Falun Dafa is good and Falun Dafa practitioners are kind people,” she said. “Can you help me to quit the CCP?”
I was curious and asked, “Sure, but what made you change your mind?”
It turned out that she worked for a bureau chief as a nanny. The family had a negative attitude towards Falun Dafa, as they believed the Chinese Communist Party's lies and propaganda about the practice. This had a great influence on her.
The family's only motivation in life was to make money, but their son was thrown into a detention center for drug dealing. He was bullied and beaten by the inmates. He had gone from a life of privilege and comfort, to being terrorized in jail.
The son told his family that in the detention center, he was never given a blanket, and no one seemed to care. When several Falun Dafa practitioners were brought into the detention center, one of them gave him a blanket, made room for him to sleep, and treated him with kindness. The practitioners told him about Falun Dafa and how to be a good person, which convinced him to quit the CCP. The practitioners looked after him, making sure he had food, and they did the worst jobs, so that the son didn't have to.
He was soon released from the detention center for no apparent reason. He thought that his father had arranged for his release, but his father told him that no one would accept his bribes. His parents had given up hope, and his mother cried every day.
The son realized that he had been released because he had gained a good opinion of Falun Dafa and had quit the CCP.
The son told his family that most of the inmates in the detention center were surly and unpleasant. In contrast, the Falun Dafa practitioners were in good spirits. They put the needs of the other inmates first, and gradually the inmates' moods improved, and they no longer complained.
The practitioners taught him to recite, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” He realized that he had been lead astray by the CCP propaganda about Falun Dafa, but now knew that Falun Dafa was a good practice. He said that he would tell his story to anyone who said otherwise, and he wanted to be a good person.
My neighbor said that she was very moved after hearing his story. She said, “Now the family members of the bureau chief all believe that Falun Dafa is good, and I do, too. Now I want to quit the CCP so that I can have a good future.”
I promised her I would help her quit and asked her to tell that story to her family and friends so that they could have good futures, too. She promised she would.
I am happy for my neighbor and the bureau chief's family. So many more people will now have a good future.
