“You Are the Hope of China's Future”
(Minghui.org) When I was detained for practicing Falun Dafa, weekend nights in the detention center were “study time” in the cells. An inmate once asked me to sing Falun Dafa songs, so I sang “Coming for You,” a song composed by a Dafa disciple.
I had sung this song in my cell before, and most of the inmates in there with me had heard me talk about Falun Dafa and had withdrawn from the Chinese Communist Party and its affiliated organizations. When I reached the last line of the song, “Falun Dafa is good,” almost everyone joined in and sang with me. We were so loud that half of the building could hear us. Everyone clapped enthusiastically, even inmates in the next cell.
The head of the guards yelled at me the next day. He said our cell had become a “Falun Gong cell.” He moved me to another cell. That night I heard someone in solitary confinement next door screaming and yelling. He was so loud that nobody on that floor could sleep. I heard several guards and inmates trying to talk him down, but to no avail.
When I asked who the person was, it turned out to be someone from my old cell. I tried to comfort him and asked him to take it easy. I told him to repeat, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” After a while, he quieted down and everyone relaxed.
The head of the guards showed up the next day and told me to return to my old cell and comfort the person who was in solitary confinement. After that incident, many people in the detention center heard about Falun Dafa.
Shortly before my release, an inmate told me, “I'd like to commend all the Falun Dafa disciples. You are the hope of China's future. Without you, I believe China would have no hope left.” This inmate had been in detention for many years and met many Dafa practitioners. He knows the truth about Falun Dafa and has helped practitioners, directly and indirectly, on many occasions.
