Letter to the 16th National Congress of the Chinese Communist Party from a Young Dafa Practitioner
Hello, All Representatives:
I am a primary school student and also a Falun Dafa practitioner. Since the 16th National Congress of the Chinese Communist Party will soon be held, I want to tell all of you the truth about Falun Dafa, and to tell you about my personal experience with Falun Dafa. I started practicing Falun Dafa when I was 7 years old, together with my mom. Since then I've been disciplining myself according to "Truthfulness, Compassion, Tolerance." I was constantly sick before I learned Falun Dafa. I had to go to the hospital almost every day during the winter. Whenever I caught a cold, it was accompanied by a high temperature, coughing, and tracheitis. Each time this occurred, I had to be injected with medicine. After practicing Falun Dafa, my health became better and better, until all of the diseases were just gone, and I no longer needed to go to the hospital.
Our Teacher Li has asked us to say true words, to do truthful things, to be an honest person, to be considerate to others, to be nice, to not fight back when being attacked, to be quiet when being cursed. Once a boy shot at my eye with a toy gun. The corner of my eye swelled up and it was painful, but I didn't say anything or get angry with him, since our Teacher asked us not to.
When our classroom had no mops or buckets, my mother would usually buy them, along with towels and soap for the class. Among the 80 students in the class, many of their parents have more money than my mother does. My classmates would say: "Your mom is really nice." I would say quietly: "You should thank Falun Dafa."
Each time when the school asked for donations to aid disaster areas, or to plant trees, my donation would be the largest in our school. This was the case not because I have a lot of money, but because I saved my pocket money for the benefit of others. If I hadn't learned Falun Dafa, I would have used my pocket money only to buy delicious food for myself. Some of my classmates who had spent more than one hundred Yuan to buy food for themselves donated just fifty cents.
Some people slandered my Teacher by saying that he collects money. I myself am an example to prove that they are lying. If what they said was true, he couldn't have a student as selfless as I am.
Once one of my classmates lost some money, and the instructors in the same office as the head teacher of our class shared the same sentiment: "Serves you right, who told you it was OK to put money in your schoolbag?" They blamed not the thief, but instead the one who had lost his money, for not being careful. Then I started thinking, if those few people hadn't started the persecution against Falun Dafa, there would be many more people learning Dafa, and many more people learning to be kind and more virtuous, and things like stealing money would no longer exist.
Falun Dafa is an excellent practice that teaches people to be compassionate. The persecution against Falun Dafa, actually instigated by a small number of people, is totally wrong. I hope this 16th National Congress will find a good solution for the issue of Falun Dafa. I hope that all the Dafa practitioners who have been detained will be released.
