Beijing, China | Minghui
I am a Tuidang volunteer and a Falun Gong practitioner for many years. I met an elderly man in a park and we chatted for a while. I told him how corrupt the Communist Party (CCP) is and described the harm the Party has done to our people over the years: The Cultural Revolution, the Tiananmen Square massacre, and the ongoing persecution of Falun Gong.
I said, “Since the CCP has been in power, it has murdered more than 80 million innocent people. That is unforgivable, and sooner or later they will be met with retribution.
“Falun Gong is a Buddha school cultivation system in which practitioners conduct themselves according to the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. But the communist party was afraid of losing power and began a large-scale persecution of Falun Gong.”
The elderly man remarked, “I like what you said. I am a member of the Party.”
I added, “We cannot give our lives to it. Please consider quitting the Party.”
He agreed and I gave him a book titled The Ultimate Goal of Communism. He gratefully accepted it.
Two days later, I ran into him again in the park. He told me that the book I gave him was great and that everything in it was true. He exclaimed, “I am over 80, so I experienced all that!”
I told him to pass the booklet on to his family members, and he agreed.
One morning, I went back to that park and saw the man surrounded by a group of people. He seemed very animated, describing a car accident he’d had a few days prior. He said that a car hit him while he was riding a bicycle. He flew off the bicycle and landed hard on the ground. His bicycle was totaled.
The driver took him to a hospital, but he was fine and didn’t even have a scratch on him. The man confided to the group that he was 84 years old. I then stepped in and used the opportunity to tell them how good Falun Gong is. Two more people agreed to quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations.
