(Minghui.org) On the second day of the 2020 Chinese New Year, I went to my grandmother’s house to pay my respects. I was overjoyed that my aunt was there. She and I are very close, as I stayed at her house for a few months when I first started middle school and I had a great time there.
My aunt brought me a gift this time––a mobile hard drive. She taught me how to use it to circumvent the internet firewall in China and access uncensored information from overseas websites. I took it home as a treasure.
When the epidemic in Wuhan broke out, I was surprised to see how totally different it was reported on abroad. While the people in Wuhan were dying and the incinerators were burning bodies 24 hours a day, I didn’t see any of that in the domestic news. I was being told that everything was “good” and “under control.”
By April 2020, the lockdown of Wuhan was lifted. Everyone around me breathed a sigh of relief, saying that the plague would pass quickly, just like SARS. At the time of SARS, I was only a few years old, so I had no memory of it. Seeing everyone relax, I was relieved.
Then the plague spread from China to foreign countries. While people were thankful for the speedy development of a vaccine and hoped that it would keep the plague at bay, news kept coming out that strains of the virus had mutated. In my eyes, each strain is like a new disease, and each vaccine only protects you from one disease.
Why is there a plague? I know from articles on overseas media that the plague is targeting the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), because the CCP has committed heinous crimes against humanity, especially in the persecution of Falun Gong and harvesting organs from living Falun Gong practitioners. The CCP should pay for that, but it is in power and no one can control it. So the plague occurred, which was caused by the CCP’s sins.
China is now excluded from the global statistics of infections and deaths because the international community knows that the figures reported by the CCP are false. Although the CCP’s figures are false, the deaths are real. In the past, when the CCP began a revolution, it often said that “a single spark can start a prairie fire,” while now it’s “a single spark of plague can set the CCP on fire.”
No matter how the CCP conceals the truth, and no matter how panicked the people are, I am not afraid. Since I started going to school, my aunt has told me the auspicious phrases “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,” which took root in my heart. Recalling us walking hand in hand, reciting those phrases, is a beautiful memory that I will never forget.
My aunt used to tell me many amazing stories about Falun Dafa, but now I have personally encountered one. When my classmates were looking for a job through backdoor channels, the job I had already settled on fell through because my family did not bribe the official in charge. I did not get discouraged, because I knew that I would be blessed for reciting “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”
Sure enough, not long ago, a company that had never recruited at our school came to recruit workers, and they paid several thousand yuan more than the first employer. The student who went through the back door and took my job really regretted it.
People will encounter many things in their lives, but the most important thing in my heart is life and safety. No matter how much money one has or how high one’s status, the only thing that matters is one’s life. And Falun Dafa’s auspicious phrases can truly protect life and safety. People who understand the truth about Falun Dafa and withdraw from the CCP and its affiliated organizations are the lucky ones.
