Passing through Texas Route 6 and turning onto route 185, after a few minutes you will see a billboard with President Bush's photo. The message on the side of the photo reads, "Crawford, Home of President Bush."
This place is often referred to as the "Western White House." This small town has become a media focus in recent years because President Bush often vacations here and many important political figures come to this town. Visitors from around the world come to see this regular town and its not so regular visitors. All of this has made Crawford a very special place. President Bush received the Russian President, UK Prime Minister and King of Jordan at his ranch. The residents of the town are very proud and hospitable. Then how will they "welcome" the dictator whom the media disclosed as having "invited himself"?
The exhibition hall where a Falun Gong practitioner's painting exhibition was being held resonated with soothing Dafa music. The beautiful paintings and nothing-less-than-extraordinary story deeply touched many people's hearts. A Crawford man presented the artist with a T-shirt locals are quite proud of. The T-shirt read, "Crawford, the home of President Bush." They wanted the artist to paint them a special painting they could print on their T-shirts to show their respect to Chinese culture, especially to Falun Dafa. Since many people in the town raise horses and this year is China's year of the horse, the artist painted a galloping horse. The phrase, "The horse arrives bringing great success" expresses the artist's wishes on the T-shirt. When the residents learned of the Jiang regime's brutal persecution of millions of practitioners who embrace Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance, they were shocked. They had difficulty believing there could be such hideous crimes in this day and age. The beauty of Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance once again moved kind-hearted people. They said, "Not only do you need, but we also need and the whole world needs Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance. Let the message of 'The World Needs Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance' spread all over the world from our town." Now souvenir stores in the town have "The World Needs Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance -- Home of the Western White House" T-shirts to welcome visitors from near and far.
Another point worthy of mention is that about 20 so-called staff members from the Jiang regime were very active in the area, trying to spread lies about Falun Gong. Residents of Crawford went to the local police department with House Resolution 188 and told the truth of Falun Gong. The police said, "I know Falun Gong practitioners are peaceful. They have a very good record." Here we would like to admonish those agents working for the Jiang regime: stop spreading lies. What awaits them might only be getting their own names on a "terrorists list."
