"A Painter Awakens" and Two More Short Stories from China

A Painter Awakens
When the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) first launched its persecution against Falun Gong in China, a painter beguiled by the CCP's lies was coerced into creating comic strips slandering Falun Gong. Falun Gong practitioners in his area have repeatedly approached him and clarified the truth about Falun Gong to him. They even gave him a copy of the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party and information pertaining to the dark truth about the CCP. Once he realized the truth about Falun Gong, he regretted what he had done. He repeatedly wanted to make up for his past wrongdoing.

In 2005, the local Gestapo like "610" Office approached him and told him to create pictures that slander and defame Falun Gong, but this time he adamantly refused to comply. He told Falun Gong practitioners, "Now I understand everything. It was divine beings that blessed me with a talent for painting, so I must use my talents and skills to praise the good and condemn the wicked. I must never use my talent to assist the evil with its wicked deeds."

So far, the artist has already been inspired to draw a few painting that portray the 610 Office persecution, as well as practitioners' resilience to violence and their uncompromising faith in Falun Gong. He has decided to publish these paintings when the time is right.

A Policeman Slowly Sees the Truth
In May of 2006, the son-in-law of a Falun Gong practitioner in Zhaoyuan City, Shandong Province received a call from the police. The policeman asked him over the phone, "Are you a resident of ABC village? Are there any Falun Gong practitioners in your village?" He replied, "Yes, there are Falun Gong practitioners in my village. In fact, my own father-in-law is one." The policeman told him, "Tell him that things will get bad for a few days. Tell him to find a place to hide for a few days. If truth be told, I am most reluctant to get involved, but I have no choice."

"Falun Gong Is Truly Miraculous"
On June 13th, 2006, the People's Court in Xiangyang Precinct, Hegang City, Heilongjiang Province held an illegal trial of Falun Gong practitioners. The police took top security measurements to prevent anyone from entering the courtroom. Only a few of its people were sitting in the courtroom. Local Falun Gong practitioners heard about the illegal trial and started to send forth righteous thoughts together.

Shortly after the trial started, a bailiff passed out and fell to the floor. He was immediately carried out of the courtroom. Then most of the court employees in the courtroom started to feel fatigue and chest pain. The bailiffs had to rotate every five minutes to get fresh air. A man in the courtroom commented, "I have attended many trials, but I have never experienced anything so strange. Falun Gong is truly miraculous. I must seriously start to read Zhuan Falun."

The trial, which was held from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., concluded without reaching a verdict.
