Gratitude from a Retired Police Officer
(Minghui.org) My husband is 75 years old and is a retired policeman. This is the second marriage for both of us, but we get along very well, and we have been married for over ten years now.
Unfortunately, I developed severe heart disease three years ago. It was very serious and got worse even with medical treatment. My husband took good care of me and tried his best to make me comfortable. Last October, I was hospitalized and had five heart attacks within six days.
When I was in critical condition, I suddenly remembered that a friend had once tried to persuade me to practice Falun Gong and told me that it has great healing effects. Since the treatment I was getting wasn't helping me, I asked my husband to let me go home to learn Falun Gong. He agreed.
My symptoms were gone within two weeks after practicing Falun Gong. My life was renewed! We are deeply grateful for the founder and teacher of Falun Gong. My husband is also very grateful: “Master Li saved your life as well as mine. I personally witnessed the wonder of Falun Gong. I will speak up and defend it whenever I have the chance.”
From that point on, whenever he met his friends and talked about Falun Gong, he would talk about his understanding and experience. Whenever we go out and run into friends or relatives, I mention the wonder of Dafa's principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. My husband then adds, “Look at my wife! She used to be so sick, she looked pale, and her legs were so swollen she could hardly walk. Look at her now. She is healthy and energetic! Falun Gong is amazing!”
Amid the Chinese Communist Party’s persecution of Falun Gong, many of his colleagues have been misled or at least intimidated by the subject. One of his police friends asked, “You have been a cop for years. How do you dare talk about Falun Gong?” My husband replied, “A cop is first and foremost a human being, and we do things according to our conscience. We are all close to eighty; it's time to speak the truth.”
When it was close to the New Year's holiday, my husband tossed and turned in the night. I asked him what was on his mind. He replied that he would tell me the next day.
The next day was the New Year, and his children and their families all came to visit us. We had a good reunion. When everyone sat down, my husband began, “We had a very good year, particularly when your mother got well. I am so happy. You don’t have to worry about us now. We can take care of each other. We are deeply grateful for Master Li and Falun Gong. I don’t know how to pay Master back, but I will give the first cup of wine to Master Li. We wish him a happy new year!”
After the children left, my husband said, “We are so blessed. I wanted my children to know that Falun Gong is good and that we’re grateful for Master Li's saving grace.”
