In 2000, I was arrested and imprisoned for inviting two Falun Gong practitioners over for dinner. In China, three people gathering together can be considered as an illegal party. I recall looking out the window of my cell, where I was held for several months, and seeing young girls my age walking about, oblivious to the fact that I was being jailed simply because of my spiritual beliefs. I thought of throwing a piece of paper out the window with the words, "Please help rescue me!" scribbled on a piece of note paper.
