My Aunt Is a Steadfast Practitioner
(Minghui.org) My aunt is almost 70 years old, but she looks very healthy and is full of energy. Climbing up six floors is nothing to her.
She was very sick before she started to practice Falun Gong. During the past more than 10 years she has not needed to take any medicine. She used to turn back the water meter in order to pay less. Since becoming a practitioner, she has never taken a penny that doesn't belong to her. She is a good person and follows Master Li's teachings. Practicing Falun Gong changed her physically and mentally.
Since the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) started to persecute Falun Gong in 1999, our local practitioners have suffered a lot. Some have been sentenced. some were sent to labor camps, others were fired from their jobs, and some had their wages reduced. Some families were broken up. Some practitioners were even tortured to death. My aunt wants everyone knows the truth about Falun Gong.
Police Officer: “We Can't Stop This Old Lady”
When a practitioner was arrested on May 13, 2015, my aunt and a new practitioner went to the residential area and distributed information materials about Falun Gong. They were followed and arrested.
A young officer was going to torture my aunt and pushed her onto the tiger bench. My aunt did not want him to torture her and thereby commit a crime. She managed to sit up on the table as the officer tore at her clothes and twisted her arms.
The leader of the Domestic Security Division came in with several officers. My aunt told him, “Your officer tore my clothes and hurt my arms. I should not be the one who suffers--he should!” All of a sudden, the officer shouted, “It hurts!” and ran away holding his arms.
The other officers were shocked. The leader said, “Let's go to your home and take a look.” Actually, he wanted an excuse to take my aunt home.
When they got there, the door was locked. He looked in through the windows and said, “How come the words 'Falun Gong is good' are posted on the cabinet?” My aunt replied, “Why not? Isn't Falun Gong?” The leader said quickly: "Good, good, good." Then he and the other officers left.
My aunt always clarified the facts about Falun Gong. Even police officers from the Domestic Security Division admitted, “We can't stop this old lady.”
Eyewitnesses to the Power of Falun Gong
Once my aunt saw a man lying on the ground by the side of the road surrounded by a group of people. He was in a bad way. My aunt crouched down and said to the dying man, "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good, Falun Gong is good."
After a while, the man came to. Those present witnessed the power of Falun Gong.
“You Will Have to Take Me Home”
My aunt and several other practitioners went to her hometown to tell people about Falun Gong. The villagers in the mountains are simple and stubborn. Many believed the CCP lies about Falun Gong. They reported my aunt to the police, but she was able to escape.
After that, the leader of the local Domestic Security Division went after her, and she was arrested in her hometown. The police wanted to take her to a forced labor camp. My aunt sent strong righteous thoughts to prevent it.
The police car broke down on the way the camp, and they had to find another car. But things didn't go well after that, either. They circled the highways for a long time to find the right exit.
My aunt had been clarifying the facts to the police all along the way. She encouraged them to do good deeds. They all understood that the persecution of Falun Gong was not good. She said, “Whether I will go to a labor camp or not will not be your decision. You will have to take me back, just like you brought me here.”
Just as she had predicted, the labor camp refused to admit her, and the police had to take my aunt home.
