As in the past years, Falun Gong practitioners in Washington celebrated the first public introduction of Falun Dafa by the founder Master Li Hongzhi on May 13th, 1992 and Master Li's birthday by doing exercises in a group and giving artistic performances. They also displayed dozens of photos showing the hard but glorious journey of Falun Dafa since 1992.
Talented Falun Gong practitioners performed dragon and lion dances and gave solo performances that showed the beauty of Falun Dafa and the spirit of Falun Gong practitioners. The child practitioners from the Minghui School were the most fascinating. They demonstrated the five sets of Falun Gong exercises, played Pipa and trumpet, and performed the dances, "Planting Lotuses" "Peace Drum" and "Celestial Children."
Cathy Kluth from North Carolina said she hadn't heard about Falun Dafa before, but after watching the exercise demo, she felt like the movements were like a smoothly spoken language. She said, "The children's meditation looked so beautiful! I felt strong energy!" She planned to visit a Falun Dafa website for more information.
