(Minghui.org) Falun Dafa practitioners exhibited many artworks from the Art of Zhen Shan Ren (Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance) International Exhibition and raised awareness about the ongoing persecution of Falun Dafa, at Balboa Park, San Diego on September 18, 2022.
Ms. Yang Shuoxiang, the coordinator of the art exhibition, said that the weather was perfect and the park was an ideal spot to display the artworks. Endless streams of people were attracted to the artworks and to Falun Dafa practitioners demonstrating the exercises.
“The Chinese Communist Party can never break practitioners’ spirit”
Lorraine Gonzales viewed each artwork carefully and said, “I like all the art pieces. It is truly eye opening and touching. It touches my soul.”
She said that she saw Falun Dafa practitioners’ determination from these artworks, “I see that the spirit endures. The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) can never break practitioners’ spirits because it is beyond that of a human.”
She already knew that the CCP persecutes people, but never knew how bad it had gotten. “I did not know that people are being persecuted for believing in Falun Dafa. I did not know how brutal this persecution was. What is the CCP afraid of?” she wondered.
Ms. Gonzales said that Falun Dafa piqued her interest, “I like philosophies from the East. I’ll take some informational materials and will look more into it.”
“Falun Dafa benefits a lot of people”
A woman pressed her palms together as a sign of respect multiple times and expressed her gratitude to Falun Dafa practitioners. She’d learned about the persecution of Falun Dafa online and hoped that more people could learn the truth of the persecution and support Falun Dafa.
“America is one big family. It is important to us that Falun Dafa is spreading around America because it will benefit everyone. Practitioners in China are being persecuted for Falun Dafa, for reading Dafa books or distributing informational flyers. They are arrested and brutally persecuted. Some are unable to walk or lead a normal life after getting discharged from prison,” she said.
“I also know that the CCP tries to meddle with practitioners in America. I hope more groups or entities can learn about the truth of Falun Dafa and how the CCP is persecuting practitioners overseas,” she continued.
She repeatedly said, “Falun Dafa benefits people a lot. I support practitioners in spreading Falun Dafa.”
