Stories of Two Elderly Practitioners Who Clarify the Truth with Righteous Actions
Senior practitioner clarifies the truth
Ms. Zhangliu is eighty years old. She started practicing Falun Gong in March of 1996. She used to be very weak, unable to walk and could not even care for herself. After hearing that Falun Gong could cure diseases, she had her daughter-in-law push her to the Fa-study site in a wheelchair to watch Teacher's lectures on video. After the lecture she took the stairs by herself. Her daughter-in-law wanted her sit in the wheelchair to push her back home, but she refused and walked home by herself. The Fa-study site is about one mile away from her home, but she would walk back and forth every day to watch Teacher's lecture. She insisted on studying the Fa and practicing the exercises every day and she has not needed to take any medicine since.
There was a time, after the persecution began, when someone wrote slanderous words about Dafa and Teacher on walls and electricity poles. She immediately scrubbed them off. On May 30, 2003, when she was standing on the side of the road, her neighbor accidentally knocked her down and rendered her unable to move. After being sent to the hospital, she was diagnosed with an "upper left thighbone fracture." The doctor did not recommend surgery, as she is too old, so she went back home. According to the doctor, she needed to be under special care. Because seniors have poor blood circulation and low immunity, they tend to develop bedsores easily. It would be very dangerous if complications occurred.
Her neighbor felt guilty and wanted to pay for her medical expenses, but she and her son refused to accept any payment. Her neighbor felt very grateful and repeatedly said, "Your family is too kind."
She told her neighbor, "We are Falun Gong practitioners and we don't worry about those things. I only have one favor to ask, "If you see words slandering Falun Gong and Teacher, could you please remove them for me because I can't go out these days."
Since then, slanderous words no longer appear in that area. Her neighbor also tells people, "Falun Gong is good!" Three days later, the elderly woman was able to sit up on her own. One month later she could walk normally. Now she has completely recovered.
Where does the money come from to make informational materials?
By a practitioner in Jiamusi city, Heilongjiang Province
I recently went to a store run by a couple. After I clarified the truth to them, they both felt that Falun Dafa is good. They said that it was truly incredible that practitioners make truth-clarifying materials at their own expense. In fact, there are many such touching stories.
This April, I was forced to leave home to avoid further persecution. I stayed at a senior practitioner's house. She has a grandchild to care for and only has 400-Yuan as her monthly pension. Therefore she is very thrifty. In order to save gas, she would warm up water near a heating pipe or under the sun before boiling it. She would keep the light off when practicing the exercises. Even the refrigerator became a decoration and is never plugged in. In order to save electricity, she also keeps the light off when she cleans the dishes at night and she eats simple food. Her twenty-year-old grandchild often wears pants with patches. I initially thought that she did this because she did not have much income.
Several days before, she had given fellow practitioners 400 Yuan and said, "I already saved enough for my daily expenses. I saved this for making truth-clarifying materials." I told this story to another practitioner and he was also moved to tears.
