This song is based on the true life story of Yuan Jiang. In 2001, at the age of 29, Yuan was brutally persecuted to death in China by the Chinese communist regime for his practice of Falun Gong – a peaceful mind and body practice based on the principles of truthfulness, compassion, forbearance and incorporating 5 meditative exercises.
The persecution of Falun Gong practitioners in China is still ongoing.
