A local resident and her two children took some introductory materials. They came back three times to the booth to talk to Falun Gong practitioners. This resident said she had learned about Falun Gong at the Moon Festival the previous month and started practising with her two children. Her three-year-old son could cross both legs in the lotus position the first time he tried meditation. She said, "I have been looking for the book Zhuan Falun but haven't found it." The Falun Gong practitioner was very touched by her sincerity and gave her his own copy of the book. The woman was very happy to get the book and said she would read it carefully and value it very much.
Paster Joe Walsh from Boston expressed his deep sympathy for the innocent Falun Gong practitioners under persecution.
A nun and professor at Brandeis University showed great interest in Falun Gong. She praised Falun Dafa for being a great cultivation system and said the entire display was so true. She had read "Mao Zedong, the Unknown Story" and thought Mao's philosophy and Communism were very wrong.
Another woman told Falun Gong practitioners she was very saddened by the persecution. She was very shocked to learn about the CCP's crime of harvesting organs from living Falun Gong practitioners and she condemned the CCP's crimes against humanity.
People of different ethnic backgrounds participated in the festival. Many people stopped by the Falun Dafa booth. They learned how to make folded paper lotus flowers, took introductory materials and talked to Falun Gong practitioners. It was a very busy day.
