Shen Yun Reminds Us to Have ‘Love, compassion, and peace for one another,’ Says Award-Winning Writer

“I love the message, and the fact that [Shen Yun] can be shown here, but can’t be shown in China just breaks my heart. I cried during the 1999 [piece, “A Child’s Choice”]. 
 

“I am really honored to see Shen Yun.” 
 

Margo Mateas:
 

“I love it. I was so excited. I decided I was going to give myself this as a reward for finishing my book and working so hard.”
 

“It’s uplifting. There’s a joy to it that we need in this world, and it’s bringing back principles that people really lose here on earth.” 
 

“I love it (the spiritual element). It’s so important. We have enough violence and hatred everywhere else in our lives. We need more reminding of love, compassion, and peace for one another.”
 

“I love the interactive screen (digital projection).” 
 

“The music is wonderful. I was just thinking they should have a DVD.”
 

“I first heard about [Shen Yun] in 2014, and I wanted to see it, but didn’t really have the money. This year, I’m just going to do it because I need it.”
