(Clearwisdom.net) Yue Lei, the son of Falun Dafa practitioner Yue Xia, born on April 22, 1986, is currently attending school in the 7th High School of Weifang City, Shandong Province.
In school, he is a good student and excels in both conduct and academics. Over the past two years, because his mother and elder brother firmly continue in practicing Falun Gong, he has been exposed to the pain of his family members being taken away.
Yue Lei's mother, practitioner Yue Xia, born on August 10, 1957, worked in Weifang's Second Drug Factory. Because Yue Xia continued to practice Falun Gong, on October 30, 2002, she was seized by the authorities. She was later sentenced to 12 years in prison, and she is now detained in the 4th Brigade of Jinan Prison in Shandong Province.
Yue Lei's father died of illness in 1993.
Yue Lei's older brother, Yue Ping, was born on February 26, 1981. On October 30, 2002, he was taken away by the authorities, together with his mother. He was later illegally sentenced to 3 years in prison, and is now in the 5th Brigade of Weibei Prison in Shandong Province.
Yue Lei is now left with only his great-grandmother, who is over 90 years old. They have almost no money, and rely on small amounts of financial assistance from good friends and relatives. Life is very hard for them. Yue Lei has not only been exposed to the pain of his close family members being taken away, but he is now faced with the possibility of having to quit school because of the tremendous financial difficulty.
