My Bicycle Journey to Beijing to Appeal for Falun Dafa 【那些年 他們走過的路】

(Clearwisdom.net) At the end of summer in the year 2000, I biked alone to Beijing to appeal for justice for Falun Dafa.
.......
Since I did not have an ID to check into hotels (In China, one usually needs an official ID to check into a hotel.), I had taken a thin plastic tarp with me, planning to spend the nights outdoors. The first night of my journey, I found a sand pit. I rolled the plastic sheet into a cylinder and stuck it into the pit. Then I worked my way down into the pit. However, the plastic tarp could not retain heat. The temperature difference inside and outside the pit caused the moisture in the air to condense, drenching my clothes. This is how I passed the first night.

(明慧網2003年1月31日)2000年夏末,我隻身騎車進京證實大法,……當時我什麼也沒帶,只有身上的幾百元錢,想到買火車票還得查這查那的,我也沒身份證,索性我就騎我的舊自行車,開始了六百多里路的進京正法行。
……
由於沒身份證不能住旅館,我便買了一種農用的塑料布,以備晚上睡覺用。在騎自行車進京的第一天傍晚,我在公路邊找了一個沙坑,把塑料布做成了一個桶形,剛好能鑽進去,可塑料布不保暖,裡熱外冷的溫差使熱氣凝成水珠,將衣服打濕,就這樣艱難地度過了一夜。
The second day I kept biking. As I rode, I decided to make a banner. At a roadside store I bought some red cloth and a bucket of yellow paint.
......

第二天,我繼續前行,開始準備做橫幅材料,在路邊小舖裡買了一些紅布和一桶黃色油漆。

……
At noon, I arrived in the suburbs of Beijing. There were many checkpoints in front of the hotels and on the streets. Where could I possibly spend the night? ......
Soon I found a bush nearby, surrounded by some dried-up grass over a meter tall. I knew this would be the place where I would sleep that night. At night, I pulled up some of the grass to use as my mattress.

北京的旅館和街道盤查得很嚴,今晚我該在哪過夜呢? ……就發現老盧溝橋附近有一片小樹林,長了很多一米多高的枯草,還有幾個小墳頭,我想:這地方一定是人跡罕至,夠隱蔽的,這就是我今夜呆的地方了。到晚上,我拔了許多枯草,一些做「褥子」,一些做「被子」。我悟到進京正法也是向世人展示大法弟子的風貌,得注意自身的形象,為免把外套睡髒,我就把外套反過來穿。

At about 10:00 a.m. on the fourth day, I arrived at Tiananmen Square......When I looked around I saw many visitors. Noticing there were also many plainclothes policemen, I felt a bit of fear. I had never spoken out in front of so many people before, so I did not pull out my banner right away. Time passed by quickly while I hesitated, trying to decide whether or not to raise my banner. When I looked at my watch, I saw it was nearly noon. At that time, there were many tourists on the square. I thought to myself that I shouldn't miss such a good opportunity.
第四天清晨,我想:今天要上天安門了,一定要在10:00前趕到廣場,那時遊人較多,……
I walked up to the national flagpole. Without any hesitation, I pulled out my banner, raised it up high over my head, and shouted from the bottom of my heart, "Falun Dafa is Good" "Falun Dafa is Righteous" "Return Dafa's Good Reputation." The banner with its bright yellow characters on the red background was very eye-catching. My shouts were so loud that they were able to frighten away all the evil.

這時一個外國旅遊團向我走來,正是打橫幅的好機會,但自己平時沒有在那麼多人面前說過話,害羞的心又上來了,就沒打出來。又坐了一會,靜靜心,……
這樣反復了好幾次,一看表,快12:00了,正是遊人最多的時候,再不打就錯過這麼好的機會了,今天說什麼也得打出大法橫幅,喊出弟子的心聲。於是我走到國旗桿附近,一橫心,堂堂正正地將「法輪大法好」的橫幅高高舉過頭頂,蓄積在心裡已久的聲音:「法輪大法好!」「法輪大法是正法!」「還大法清白!」衝出喉嚨,響徹天宇,紅底黃字的橫幅在藍天白雲的映襯下分外耀眼,發自心底的吶喊震耳欲聾……
