Elders touched by students Taiwan tour

Two students who protested against altered curricula by travelling around Taiwan on foot touched the heart of a 72 years old lady.

Taichung Mayor Lin Chia-lung said the municipal city recently received a letter from a grandmother whose last name is Chen. In the letter, the grandmother stated her admiration for the students, and she wishes the mayor can pass on NT30, 000 in the package to the students.

Grandmother Chen said on the letter that she is now 72 years old. She heard from the news that 2 youngsters spend 25 days to walk throughout the nation to voice their opposition towards the altered curricula. Chen is touched by their determination. She wanted to help them out but she cannot ride scooters or drive a car. The only thing she knows is the students will arrive at Taichung municipal government building.
“It is very touching to see them walking in hot weather like this. Please send my NT30,000 to the students and tell them to stay hydrated,” wrote Chen.

Chen did not leave any contact information. Lin is touched by the kindness and affection of the elder who cares for the youngsters.
