(Minghui.org) My mother, in her 90s, and I both practice Falun Dafa, also known as Falun Gong. She rarely goes out, so she only does a little Fa-rectification work with me at home.

On her 92nd birthday, our whole family celebrated her birthday at a restaurant. After we ate, everyone took turns singing songs to congratulate her. Someone suggested she sing one, too, so she did.

She sang well and remembered all the lyrics. When she finished, everyone applauded. But I realized that the song was about the war with Japan, and it was full of Chinese Communist Party (CCP) propaganda and culture.

My mother is in relatively good health for someone in her 90s, but her memory is bad. Even though she listened to the audio of Master’s Fa lectures all day every day, she couldn’t remember much. I tried to persuade her to memorize Hong Yin, starting with some short poems first, but she always said she couldn’t remember them.

She did not have much education and barely went to school. But she remembered the old CCP songs from decades ago clearly. She reminds me of many other elderly practitioners who, like her, barely had any education but had the CCP culture instilled in them during their formative years. I believe that has seriously hindered their cultivation.

The book Disintegrating Party Culture, published by the Epoch Times, can serve to disintegrate Party culture. Those who are illiterate can listen to the audio version.

While we were eating in the restaurant for my mother’s birthday, the pandemic came up, and my sisters repeated the CCP’s lies. One of them said that the virus came from abroad. The other said that the United States was the worst on China affairs. My sisters are all government employees and have been poisoned by the CCP.

In fact, many Chinese are like my sisters. Nowadays, many Chinese are obsessed with their cell phones and are on them constantly. But the stuff on the internet is cooked up and spread by the CCP to brainwash people. We need to pay attention to these things and let more people know the truth.

The above are my personal thoughts. Please point out anything inappropriate.
