"Injustice Anywhere Is a Threat to Justice Everywhere"

Last night we had a private Free China screening in Los Angeles.  And here is a Facebook post by one of the audience members:

"Injustice Anywhere Is a Threat to Justice Everywhere"

Martin Luther King Jr.

I cried tonight. I really had no idea what to expect when I was invited to a Private Movie Screening of – “Free China: The Courage to Believe”. Before the documentary started, I had the honor to speak with Jennifer Zeng, the woman behind the harrowing story of imprisonment and survival in the face of the Chinese government's persecution of Falun Gong, a moral philosophy centered on the tenets of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance. Her testimony moved me to tears. In this day and age, I cannot fathom that labor camps and forced organ harvesting exist. But, they do.
A struggle to victory memoir. An absolute must see. 

Jennifer's reply: Thank you Rachel for sharing this! People like you always give me courage and motivation to move on..
Rachel (again): Thank you for sharing your story. The call on your life is immense. Thank you for being the voice and standing up for those who have been silenced and in extreme suffering. We have the responsibility to rise up, speak the truth, and give hope for others to continue to believe. And, as we come together to serve others and one another, may the very life that we live, and the work that we do continue to up-level lives, inspire and influence the world that would ripple for generations to come. Thank you for making a compelling difference in the world. Much love....
