Re: “The Story Behind Lavish Chinese Dance Extravaganza Shen Yun

Over two thousand Vermonters plus audiences from other States and country saw Shen Yun in the Flynn Theater on March 25. I was one among them. Many of us were moved to tears by the stories of persecution on Falun Gong practitioners by the Chinese Communist regime acted out and danced to music so succinctly and powerfully yet so artistically and tastefully.

Throughout the entire two hours, what I experienced has been nothing but peace and harmony, beauty and goodness, fun and laughter, joy and sadness, and a whole lot more that human words cannot express adequately.

So, it was a shock to my system to read Ken Picards article that purports to be about the show but largely flings dirt at Falun Gong as a cult and its founder Li as evil.

(If an evil cult can produce such a show, Id say: WHAT A CULT!)

Picards article has me wondering what are his and Seven Days motivation and hidden agenda that appear to go all out to smear a show so welcomed all over the world and for the past decade!

(I have to ask: WHY?)

Picards article was published three days before show time. How many people were turned away and missed the rare opportunity to be impacted by a show that has finally arrived at Vermont?

What a great disservice this one man and this one free newspaper have done to the community? I believe Picard and Seven Days owe us an apology, at the least.
