(Clearwisdom.net) On the eve of the Chinese New Year, a family got together for New Years Eve dinner. The son got a phone call from a friend in Italy to wish them a happy new year. Then the friend asked to talk with the son's mother and asked her: "You were once arrested by the police. How has your health been since your release? Do you still practice Falun Gong?" She told him that she had been doing quite well, and was still practicing Falun Gong. He asked: "Do they let you practice?" She said: "The government prohibits us from doing it." He said: "Why don't you come to Italy. Here everyone is free to practice. They do it all over the place." The whole family laughed.

I did not expect that this friend had changed so much. He was a guard in a forced labor camp. His father also worked there. Both had dealt with Falun Gong practitioners. A few years ago he quit his job and went abroad to make a living. In western society, he came in contact with Falun Gong practitioners and became truly aware of the facts about Falun Gong. He learned that all practitioners are good people, the communist propaganda was all lies, and Dafa is just wonderful. He learned that people are practicing Falun Gong all over the world, and it is supported and praised everywhere.

Last year he also called around New Year's Day. He said that he went on the web quite often and could read anything. He read articles about Falun Gong quite often, and has changed his perception of it a great deal. I asked him if he knew of the campaign of quitting the Chinese Communist Party. He said yes and that he had learned it from the web. I urged him to quit the CCP. He said without hesitating: "Sure. Let's do it."

He learned truly from his heart what is right and wrong, quit the CCP, and has chosen a good future for himself. One can turn into a totally different person once one leaves China and goes abroad.
