An Increasing Number of Caucasians Wish to Know the Truth about Falun Gong
People are becoming increasingly receptive to our offer of truth-clarification materials, especially Caucasians. Some Caucasians spent a long time looking at the exhibit and listening to Falun Gong practitioners describing Jiang Zemin's persecution against Falun Gong. Nowadays we display a new banner in front of the World Trade Center every morning. The message on the new banner reads, "Many of your Chinese coworkers have been deceived by the Chinese Communist Party and are helping to spread its lies. Please do not be misled by their words. Read the true story of Falun Gong yourself." Almost every Caucasian will turn and read the banner as they pass by our torture exhibit. A lot of them take the truth-clarification material from us.
Two Female Chinese Students in America
The Chinese people in New York are also becoming more receptive to our offer of truth-clarification materials. Two female Chinese college students did not want to take truth-clarification materials at first, but an elderly Falun Gong practitioner made an effort to chat with them. After a while, they started to ask many questions about Falun Gong. Their questions revealed that they have fallen prey to the Chinese Communist's hate propaganda against Falun Gong. For example, they asked, "Why does Falun Gong require its adherents to set themselves on fire like they did at Tiananmen Square as part of the practice?" or "Why don't you stay at home and practice Falun Gong secretly when the government is suppressing the practice?"
The elderly practitioner explained patiently to them, "How can we possibly take any life, including our own lives, when Falun Gong requires us to follow the cultivation principles of Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance? We should be proud that so many people around the world practice Chinese Falun Gong. You should feel proud too. You'll know if you have a predestined relationship with Falun Gong after you read Falun Gong's main study text Zhuan Falun. If you have a predestined relationship with Falun Gong, you will want to keep reading it and want to find a volunteer practice site to learn Falun Gong's five exercises. If you are not yet predestined to start practicing Falun Gong, you will benefit from reading Zhuan Falun because it teaches you how to become a better person." At the end of the conversation, they each took a copy of truth-clarification material and said, "We will definitely find a copy of Zhuan Falun and read it to see if we are predestined to practice Falun Gong."
Westerners with Righteous Thoughts
One day two westerners stopped by the torture exhibit. While they were listening to Falun Gong practitioners explaining the nature of the persecution, tears began to flow down to their cheeks. Then they asked to take a photograph next to the torture demonstration.
Then another two people passed by and saw the torture exhibit. One of them reprimanded the Falun Gong practitioner acting as a thuggish policeman, "How can you torture these two woman?" The other man raised his fist and was about to hit the "thuggish policeman" when other practitioners stopped him in time and explained to him it was a torture demonstration and the blood on the actresses' faces was makeup.
One day a Caucasian woman came and asked a Falun Gong practitioners, "What do you want to achieve by doing the torture exhibit?" The practitioner answered, "First, we hope to call for more people to help end the persecution against Falun Gong practitioners in China together with us because the persecution is against all of humanity. Second, we hope to bring out the kindness in America's society. Many Americans support our cause. They signed the petition to end the persecution, wrote letters to their congressmen and senators, and told their friends and families about the persecution. As a result, they have brought out the kindness and altruism in many more people. It is good for the society. We can use a lot of kindness in today's society." It appears that she agreed with the practitioner because she kept nodding.
