(Minghui.org) I was fortunate to be introduced to Falun Dafa after July 20, 1999. After about a month of practicing it, I’d recovered from all my illnesses. My physical and mental state have undergone enormous changes since that time.
I’ve followed Dafa’s principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance since then and have become a good person. My family members believe that Dafa is good and some have also become practitioners.
When my mother-in-law was hospitalized, I was very patient and considerate in taking care of her. People in the ward were surprised to hear that I was her daughter-in-law, not her daughter. I told them that, as a Falun Dafa practitioner, one should treat everyone well.
My mother-in-law used to be afraid when I talked about Dafa in public, but now she also talks about the goodness of this cultivation practice.
“My daughter-in-law used to have many health problems,” she said. “She became healthy after practicing Dafa. She turned into a better person. This practice is really good.”
This gave me an in with the people in the hospital ward, and I could soon talk about Dafa and the persecution with them. Many even accepted Dafa amulets.
My parents-in-law own a small business. They decided to buy each of their children a mink coat, including their daughter-in-law and son-in-law.
“We are the eldest children,” I said to my husband. “Our parents earned their money through hard work. We should not accept such an expensive present.” My husband agreed.
My mother-in-law wanted to give us 20,000 yuan instead, but I told her that we would not accept it. I told her that, as the younger generation, we could not accept the money they earned through hard work.
My brother-in-law and his wife work for my in-laws, and they felt that the business should be turned over to them. This turned into an unpleasant conflict.
Although I told my husband that we should not accept the money, he felt that, since he had helped establish his parents business by providing funds and helping with the work, he should get his share. He felt that his brother was greedy and created too many conflicts.
“We should not act like him,” I said. “Our master asks us to consider others whenever and wherever. We should cultivate ourselves to be righteous divine beings. Money and materials are things beyond our souls, and we cannot bring them along when we are born or take them with us when we die. Let your parents give that money to him. I will not complain.”
My husband said, “Those who practice Falun Dafa are truly different from ordinary people. Anyone would have fought over this. People hold on to anything they can grab. From you, I’ve learned something quite different.”
After I realized the importance of filing a lawsuit against Jiang Zemin, the former head of the communist regime, I told my husband my thoughts. “I want to file a lawsuit against Jiang,” I said. “We practice Falun Dafa because we want to be good and improve our morals. Jiang's regime should be held legally responsible for the harm they did to our family.”
My husband asked me to wait until others stepped forward first.
“Wait?” I asked. “For whom should I wait? Should I wait for the ordinary people to tell the evil Chinese Communist Party (CCP) that we were wronged? We have not violated the Constitution. After Xi Jinping came to power, he put forward the new policies of ‘rule of law’ and ‘rule by the constitution.’ We should absolutely file a lawsuit.”
My husband realized that I was determined. “I admire you. You are your teacher's true disciple,” he said. “I am proud of you. In fact, I want to bring that evil person to justice, too—the early, the better. It is a pity that I do not have your courage. I will support you in filing a lawsuit against him.”
He asked me to compose a draft that he would edit. He wanted people to be touched when they read my lawsuit. After I was done, I gave it to my husband.
“There is no need for any change,” he said after reviewing it. “It is all factual. After you were detained, our home was ransacked and monitored, and our phone was tapped. They fined us and you were forced to resign from your job. Because of that, I also lost my jobs again and again.
“The damage done to us is true and unforgettable! Such a good Dafa, such good people, are being persecuted by the CCP. It is difficult even for heaven to tolerate this. They’ve committed such monstrous sins. You should file this lawsuit as is.”
