    This iReport is part of an assignment:
    Protesters occupy Taiwan legislature

    True Warriors

    The photo was taken at 3/19.

    I came to the scene at around 10:00 a.m. It was hotter than the past few days. Standing there, I could not help but sweat. I was sure that everyone had the same feeling as me. However, there were barely people complaining about it.

    In the very first beginning, I did not take any photo, because I would like to feel the atmosphere. Trying to be neutral, I walked between the crowds and hided my existence as much as I could.

    This photo, is my favorite one, after I took about 60 ones.

    The reason is so simple: the picture can somehow represent the whole protest, in my very personal opinion.

    The protesters’ age ranges from teenagers to elders. During the protest, they helped each other. It was such warmness that touched me.

    Most important of all, rather than “the violent mobs", according to Taiwanese public media’s description, they act bravely but peacefully.

    They have true grit, I think.
