One of my colleagues made a good impression on me. He was knowledgeable and a careful thinker. I asked him, “You work a lot in other places and have contact with lots of people. What do you think about Falun Gong? And what about the Tiananmen self-immolation story?”
He smiled, “Falun Gong! I know more about the self-immolation story than most people. I was there when it happened.”
I was surprised, “From the TV show, there were only firefighters and armed police beside the victims of the incident. There were no tourists or locals visible on camera.”
“You are right,” he said, “Tiananmen Square was cordoned off before the incident took place. I am from a family of a high level official. I served in the army in Beijing. The whole thing was done by my unit. There were no members of the public or Falun Gong practitioners there. But on the other hand, Falun Gong's impact is too big. They have such a strong group morale, even better than the army. How can the Party tolerate such a group?”
I said, “If a government can create and spread such a big lie to frame and persecute innocent people, how can it be trusted? Trust is the foundation of a nation. Without trust, what is the future of the country? What future will our children have?”
He was worried too, “What can we do?”
“Only by restoring traditional morality and conscience can the country and our children have hope in the future,” I said, “Have you heard of quitting the Party to help ensure yourself a better future?”
He answered yes but did not know why he should do so. He was a member of the Party.
I explained, “You were required to make a vow to sacrifice your life for the Communist Party, Communist Youth League and the Communist Young Pioneers when you joined them. The Party will fall apart one day. What goes around comes around. All its members will be in trouble. Only by withdrawing from the Party, Youth League or Young Pioneers can one avoid the havoc. So, maybe you need to make a statement to renounce the Party.”
I continued, “All you have to do to renounce the Party is visit the Epoch Times website. I can even help you do it. Falun Gong is a practice to improve health and uplift morality. Please remember, ‘Falun Dafa is good.’” He agreed to renounce the Party.
“You quit the Party and have saved yourself from its fate. You also need to tell your family about this and have them renounce the Party for their own safety.”
“Thank you! All my family are Party members. I will definitely tell them this and have them remember, ‘Falun Dafa is good.’”
