Zhengjian 10th Anniversary Articles: A Miracle
[PureInsight.org] I am a Falun Gong practitioner in Changchun City. Around 6 pm on May 17, 2003, when crossing a road to take the route 64 bus, I was hit by a white truck. Because of another big truck nearby obstructing our view, the truck driver and I did not see each other. I felt as if flying when the truck hit me at high-speed. I also heard one woman cry out as she witnessed the scene. After I fell back on the ground, the truck pushed me half a yard forward and stopped. By then my shoes had been thrown more than 20 yards away. The truck driver jump out and came over to me, and I asked him if he could get my shoes for me. By then, many pedestrians had stopped to see what had happened. I did not move and was still clutching my bag, in which there were Falun Gong exercise music cassettes and a cassette player. I also had a cell phone and a pair of glasses with me and both of them were undamaged.
The truck driver picked up my shoes and came back. He seemed to be a government officer in his 40s. Thinking it a good opportunity to clarify the truth, I said, “I am a Falun Gong practitioner and I will not take advantage of you by extorting money. I am all right due to practicing Falun Gong. If you had hit someone else, you would have run into big trouble. From this experience, please keep in your mind that Falun Dafa is good.” When hearing I was a Falun Gong practitioner, he looked even more nervous then when he first got out of the truck. I thought he should not ignore the incident that had just happened. I then remembered a story in Zhuan Falun that a practitioner was fine after an accident, but a big dent was left on the car. I went up to the car and found two new big dents on the hood. I said to the truck driver, “I’m sorry about the two dents.” He had been observing me all this time and, upon hearing that said, “No problem.” Then I went to a nearby bus station to wait for the bus. The driver left after seeing I was all right.
Many people who observed this said I was a very kind person. They were impressed that Falun Gong practitioners were such good people. One person said to me, “Remember the truck's license plate number. Please do not let the truck driver go so easily. I have seen an incident in the past where the victim let the driver go, but on the next day he was hospitalized.” I explained to them, “I am indeed all right. Plus, he did not hit me on purpose. Falun Gong practitioners always want to be better people. How can I extort money from him?” By then, the bus came and I got on it. The group of people still kept staring at me after I stepped on the bus. The passengers on the bus were surprised and asked what had happened. One of people said, “He [me] was hit hard by a truck but is alright. It seems practicing Falun Gong is really beneficial.” Then the bus left.
People who see or hear this story may learn something from it. In China, where many people follow atheism, this miracle may make them reconsider.
