David Pizinger, 35, came across the event as he was walking through the square. He was drawn in and stood in the front row for a long time. He said that he had heard of Falun Gong 13 years ago but did not understand what it was.

Seeing so many practitioners with the words “Falun Dafa” in different languages on their shirts, he was moved. He said, “Falun Gong is a gift to the whole world. Wonderful! I might start practicing Falun Gong tomorrow.”
