Resolving a False Accusation with Compassion
(Minghui.org) I went out one day to clarify the truth about Falun Dafa with a small shopping cart. When I got on the bus and was about to sit down in a senior-designated seat, I saw another woman getting on the bus who looked older than me. So I decided to keep walking toward the end of the bus to find another seat.
The bus started to move immediately before the elderly lady could hold onto anything. She fell to the floor and groaned painfully. Two people next to her tried to help her up, but she was still lying on the ground. I turned around and while asking Master Li (the founder) to help, pulled her up with both hands. Surprisingly, she then said, “Wasn’t it your cart that was blocking me, and I ended up falling?”
The others on the bus said to her, “You fell by yourself. How could you blame the person in front of you?” I immediately took the blame, and said I was sorry and didn’t see her behind me.
Then the bus stopped, and she was still sitting on the floor and groaning. I asked her if she felt better. She said that she couldn’t walk anymore and wanted to get off the bus and go back home. I offered to help her return home.
After we got off the bus she was still muttering, “I wouldn’t have fallen if it weren’t for your cart.” So I apologized again and again. I asked her where she lived and found out it was close by. So I told her I would walk her home. She thanked me and said she indeed needed some help.
As we walked, I taught her to recite: “Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” We recited it together. Along the way, we encountered a neighbor of hers who was also elderly, and she asked what happened. The lady pointed to me and said, “Her cart blocked my way, and I fell.”
Her neighbor said, “Write down her phone number. Then you can find her in case you have an injury. Don’t miss this opportunity.”
I said to her, “Ma'am, listen to me for one minute. She was standing behind me on the bus, and she fell because the bus made a sudden move. How could I be responsible for that?”
“If it was like this, then it indeed was not your fault,” replied the neighbor. The woman herself also said she would be fine, and it was not a big deal.
As we walked, I clarified the truth to her, and she very much agreed with my reasoning. We also talked about how Jiang Zemin’s group persecuted Falun Dafa, how they staged the Tiananmen Square Self-Immolation incident, how they harvested organs from imprisoned Falun Dafa practitioners, and how government officials take bribes and solicit prostitution, and so on.
In the end, she readily agreed to quit the Communist Youth League and the Young Pioneers, which are affiliated with the Chinese Communist Party. When we arrived at her building, I offered to walk her upstairs. She said, “There is no need. I feel fine now and can go up myself. Thank you!”
I said, “No problem! It was Falun Dafa's Master Li Hongzhi who protected you. You should really thank him.”
Okay then, “Thank you Master Li! No wonder you are so kind. You are a Falun Dafa practitioner!”
