An Imprisoned Practitioner's Young Son Asks, "When Will Daddy Come Back Home?"
(Clearwisdom.net) Little Wang Zong's father is imprisoned. When asked, "What did you say when you visited your dad?" Wang Zong said, "I sang him the song 'You Are My Rose.'" His mom said, "He keeps saying, 'Grandpa came back, grandma came back. When will daddy come back?'"
Wang Xianghui, Wang Zong's father, has been persecuted because he persists in practicing Falun Gong. On August 28, 2002, Wang Xianghui received an unjust sentence for tapping into the local television system and broadcasting the truth of the Tiananmen Square self-immolation. He was jailed at the Xushui County Detention Center in Baoding City for thirteen months and suffered all kinds of tortures. To resist the persecution, he went on a hunger strike eleven times. Due to the torture, Wang Xianghui became emaciated, and suffered serious mental and physical damage. In his thirties, Wang had his teeth broken and endured severe stomach sickness. His feet hurt too much to stand up. At the time, Wang Zong was three years old. He was forced to witness not only his father, but also his grandfather, grandmother, and aunt being arrested at home and the effects of their repeatedly being tortured in jail. What great damage the communist party has inflicted on Wang Zong's young heart!
Wang Xianghui used to be an employee of the Hebei Zhi County Electricity Department. He started practicing Falun Gong in 1998. Falun Gong greatly improved his mental and physical health. He worked hard and responsibly, and treated people fairly and honestly. Many people recognized him as a good person. On December 18, 1999, Wang Xianghui wished to clarify the truth to the government on how his practicing Falun Gong benefited him physically and mentally. He went to Beijing to peacefully and legally appeal, but was arrested and sent back to the county detention center that same night. In one night, the policeman Yang Daxue brutally kicked and slapped him several times. He was then stripped and forced to lie face down on the concrete floor, which was colder than -10 ºC (or less than 14 ºF). One policeman saw that his abdomen was not touching the floor and brutally kicked his body. After thirty-seven days of detention, Wang Xianghui was released and charged 13,000 yuan by Zhang Chunliang and Niu Haifeng, the original heads of the 610 Office.
In March of 2001, during the National People's Congress Conference (NPCC) and the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), in order to prevent practitioners from appealing in Beijing, the Zhi County Electricity Department arrested Wang Xianghui and Liu Xikun. Under the pressure of the 610 Office, they were sent to the department for centralized custody. At that time, the department was involved in upgrading low-voltage facilities and was short of staff. Subsequently, the department removed the guards. Wang Xianghui and Liu Xikun returned home. On hearing this, the head of the department became enraged and sent people to get them back. On the same day, the chief of the security section rescinded their labor contracts for one year and said they would "monitor their actions." They forced Wang and Liu to work, but paid them only 400 yuan. Wang and Liu were held under custody and not allowed to go home. They were also frequently asked to write a guarantee statement, affirming never to practice Falun Gong any more. Wang always refused to write it.
At the beginning of April of 2001, police and officials from the security section of the electricity department abruptly took Wang Xianghui to the police station. They forced him to declare whether he would stop practicing Falun Gong. Wang said, "I will continue the practice." As a result, he was sent to the detention center. Under the pressure of public opinion, he was released thirteen days later. In the beginning of June, thugs from the police station and the security section illegally arrested Wang Xianghui and sent him to the Bali village brainwashing center. They repeatedly tried to force him to write the guarantee statement and to curse the Fa. Unwilling to accept the humiliation, he escaped. Wang wandered homeless for fourteen months.

He was unable to stand.
Wang Xianghui has been jailed in Baoding prison since September 2003.
Wang's wife, a non-practitioner, also suffered because of the persecution. She used to work in the secretary section of the county public security bureau. During the persecution of Wang Xianghui, she was often bullied by Wang's persecutors. Several times she was nearly fired. When the police attempted to arrest Wang Xianghui, she was spied on for a long time. She was always pressured to reveal her husband's whereabouts. After Wang Xianghui was arrested, she was forced to reveal the whereabouts of her father-in-law, also a Falun Gong practitioner. Duan Rongcai, the head of the public security bureau, told her, "Why don't you manage your family members?" She replied, "How can I manage other people's affairs?" Duan hatefully said, "One day you'll have to handcuff your father-in-law." There was another time that, in her colleague's presence, Duan said, "Fire her." But everyone objected. Although she did not lose her job, she was forced to transfer departments. She was so wounded by her husband's arrest that she nearly committed suicide. She told others, "If it were not for my son, I wouldn't want to live any more." Under the evil pressure, she became worried of being implicated again and wanted to help her son. She eventually chose to divorce her beloved husband. Since then, the mother and the son have led a terribly hard life.
Ever since he was three years old, Wang Zong has led a traumatic life. From an early age, he was close to his grandfather and grandmother. Little Wang Zong lived with his grandmother after his birth. It was his grandmother who nourished him with milk, spoon by spoon. Because of the persecution, Wang Zong was forced again and again to see his grandmother, father, and aunt be arrested and detained. His aunt was sentenced to forced labor When his grandmother was released, his grandfather was arrested and sentenced to forced labor. Then his father was sentenced to lengthy jail terms. The little boy missed his beloved relatives and cried often. For some reason, his grandmother had to move away from Wang Zong. Once when the boy met his her, he asked with great anticipation, "Grandma, why don't you return back home?" His grandmother did not know how to answer and then said, "When your daddy returns home, I will be back." When will the entire family be reunited? Wang Xianghui's wife said, "The family members were arrested again and again. I cannot let the boy be subjected to seeing that anymore." The boy misses his father, but is only allowed to meet with him during short visits every few months.
