    The blossomed gate / El portón florecido




    Since the night of March 19th, people started to decorate the gate with whitish perfume lilies as well as banners with slogan at the entrance of the building of the Legislative Yuan located at Jinan Road. After the endless overworking shifts, the facial contours of the police officers have started to soften down.
    In the morning, a man brought a white rose and students from Soochow University came with sunflowers. Two...three..four... Students have adorned the gate with more and more flowers, for which this gate, the gate that divided the citizens and the state, people's voices and the representatives' voices, have became a blossomed wall.
    A man told something to the officer at the other side of the gate, and the officer responded with a nod. The last girl who placed the sunflower on the gate yelled at the officers: "Thank you. It was a hard day!" With pronouncing a word with each other, all the police officers at the first line, who were being pushed by the authorities, happened to coincidentally show a relaxing smile at the instant.
    Right, this is the state, the one who makes the citizens to stand at the opposite side of the policemen and the one who makes the policemen in front of the citizens.


    Desde la noche del 19 de marzo, la gente empezó a decorar el portón con lirios perfume blanquecinas, así como pancartas con lemas en la entrada del edificio del Yuan Legislativo que se encuentra en la calle Jinan. Después del exceso de trabajo interminables, los contornos faciales de las policías comenzaron a suavizarse.
    Por la mañana, un hombre trajo una rosa blanca y los estudiantes de la Universidad Soochow vino con girasoles. Dos ... tres ... cuatro .. Los estudiantes han adornado el portón con más y más flores, y este portón, el que divide los ciudadanos y el Estado, las voces de las personas y las voces de los representantes, se han convertido en un muro florecido.
    Un hombre le dijo algo al oficial en el otro lado del portón, y el oficial asentió la cabeza. La última chica que colocó el girasol en la puerta le gritó a los agentes: " ¡Gracias! Fue un duro día de trabajo." Sin haber pronunciado ningun palabra entre ellos, los agentes de la primera línea, quienes han sido empujado por las autoridades, mostraron una sonrisa relajada en ese instante.
    Sí, este es el estado, el que hace que los ciudadanos se sitúen en el lado opuesto de los policías y el que hace que los policías enfrente a los ciudadanos.
