A Legend I Come Across Today 今日我看到「傳奇」
Yesterday I quoted my sister Ariel Tian's interpretation about what is tragedy and what is legend as follows:
"Tragedies are processes of how beauty is destroyed.
Legends are processes of how beauty cannot be destroyed whatsoever."
昨日我轉發了雲坊Yun Boutique創始人田甜Ariel Tian關於「悲劇與傳奇」的「名言」：
Today I came across this article, which is about the early days of how Falun Gong's website Minghui.org was running. When I read these two paragraphs, I couldn't hold back my tears. I believe this is exactly what we should call "legend"(please note that all the editors are volunteers who have been paid nothing, and who have been working under similar conditions for more than 18 years now):
"July 20, 1999, was a dark day. That morning, police arrested Falun Dafa coordinators across China, and the media controlled by the Communist regime started to broadcast the slanderous propaganda about Dafa.
"Many practitioners in China went to their local governments or Beijing to appeal for Dafa after they learned the news. Many practitioners in North America also went to Washington, DC, to hold rallies in front of the Chinese consulate and on Capital Hill, calling for public attention to stop the persecution. The situation changed very rapidly, and the Minghui website had to report the news in mainland China and overseas around the clock. The editors and technical practitioners at the website could no longer follow their normal daily schedules; instead, they had to spend their days and nights working on selecting, editing, and updating the articles. After they finished processing the large number of articles submitted by overseas practitioners during the day, articles from China came in waves in the evening. Round after round, they had very little time to sleep."
