Moment of Truth Mayor Anthony A. Williams declared last week Falun Dafa Week in the District. Falun Dafa is a centuries-old Eastern meditation system centered on truthfulness, benevolence, and forbearance. But the mayor was willing to be only so benevolent: Despite honoring Falun Dafa, Williams, says spokesperson Peggy Armstrong, didn’t join participants for the 6 a.m. meditation session on the Mall.
