“I come every single year. I’m [Shen Yun’s] greatest supporter and advocate. … I think it’s amazing that [they] have so much courage and … continue to promote peace around the world.
“I think it’s time to start the petition, to start taking it a little more seriously, so that we can spread some love around the world and advocacy against hate. Because it is a hate crime for anybody to attack the beauty and the art and the wonder of what this population has brought and introduced to New York City.”
“I think we need more peace and harmony around the world. We need to spread less hate and more love, as what I saw in the performances today, which were outstanding. Outstanding, beautiful. I will always be here, and I will always stand by the Falun Dafa community. … God bless [Shen Yun] for spreading the wonder of [its] culture in New York City.”
