On May 12, 2005, practitioners held the "Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance" Art Exhibition on the first floor of the State Capitol of Missouri, to celebrate the sixth World Falun Dafa Day. The Governor of the State of Missouri issued a proclamation.

On that day, many people came to view the paintings, including state government officials, staff members, students and teachers visiting the Capitol, and many tourists. The beautiful paintings demonstrate the grace of Falun Dafa, the uncompromising courage of Dafa practitioners and the cruel persecution by the Chinese Communist Party. These paintings moved the hearts of the viewers and many visitors stood in front of one or another painting for quite a while. Many talked to the practitioners, requested truth-clarification materials, expressed their support to the Falun Gong practitioners and condemned the atrocities of the Chinese Communist regime. After learning the facts, people signed the appeal calling for an end to the persecution in China.

At noon, practitioners demonstrated the five sets of Falun Gong exercises, performed traditional dances and sang songs. We also visited representatives' offices and delivered paper lotus flowers to thank them for their support and to explain the facts further.

This was the third time that practitioners in Missouri celebrated World Falun Dafa Day. At the end of the event, many staff members working the building expressed their appreciation to the practitioners and hoped that we would come again next year.
