Are we human, or are we robots?

I was devastated. I was clearly disturbed. No, it wasn’t about the freak accident that happened in MotoGP (RIP, Marco Simoncelli) but rather, on an event that took place recently, where a two-year-old girl in China was left critically injured on the road after being run over by a van on the 13th of October. Wait, make that TWO vehicles, one after another, and yet, no one who passed by (there were quite a number) went to her aid.


Surveillance cameras showed a series of people walk past the girl, named Yue Yue, after she was hit first by a van and then a truck outside her family’s shop in the southern Chinese city of Foshan. Watch the video below, and be prepared to be shocked in tears.

So who came to help then? Apparently, it was a rubbish collector who finally came to the girl’s aid, moving her to the curb and shouting for help, and even then he was ignored by several shopkeepers before finally tracking down her

mother who took her to hospital. A RUBBISH COLLECTOR! I mean, are they the only human species who has feelings and are able to help a two-year-old dying child at least out of the road?!? Man, even the canine species can do better than us. But wait a minute, aren’t we humans supposed to be “human”? Or the real question is, are we REALLY humans?

Of course one could argue that this attitude isn’t helped by the law makers, where others linked the incident to an earlier case in which a man who tried to help an elderly woman after she fell over was prosecuted, apparently because his intervention broke government rules on dealing with accident victims. At least, the Chinese government in this respect. But honestly, we are we even afraid? How often does one go through the trauma of HELPING people, even more so when you know that you contributed to the DEATH of another person by leaving them DYING?!

In the end, the girl died after being in a coma (you can imagine the pain she went through… she was still friggin’ moving after being run down OKAY?!?!) and reports show that they caught the two irresponsible owners of the vehicle that ran over her. The big question still remains then… was it okay for everyone NOT to help this little girl, or any other person who may be dying?

This incident really broke the main dam of tears in me. Are we really that heartless a human? Playing quite a number of RPG games, it all revolves around the fact that we’re LOSING OUR HUMANITY. Is it too hard to lend a helping hand to an injured person? What are we becoming? Are we any different from those “future of the robots” kind of movie, where our world will eventually be run by emotionless robots? And the reason was always because the robots are told to “save the world”, and humans are the ones bringing them to destruction? Well guess what, we’re no different from that future. We, are becoming heartless, and unless we do something about it, we really could destroy the world.


Know your calling, stick to our heart’s calling, and just be human. If we can’t be humans, who else can? Your neighbour? Your friend? Your family? If we do not begin with ourselves, we will definitely lose it all, come next generation and the next. When that time comes, we are, really, no different than being robots, only doing what we are told to do, preferring to save ourselves and not be bothered about other people’s lives.

In that case, I’d really rather live in the world of the Matrix, or the Terminator. Whichever rocks my boat.

Human (The Killers)

I did my best to notice
When the call came down the line
Up to the platform of surrender
I was brought but I was kind

And sometimes I get nervous
When I see an open door
Close your eyes, clear your heart
Cut the cord

Are we human or are we dancers?
My sign is vital, my hands are cold
And I’m on my knees looking for the answer
Are we human or are we dancers?

Pay my respects to grace and virtue
Send my condolences to good
Give my regards to soul and romance
They always did the best they could

And so long to devotion
You taught me everything I know
Wave goodbye, wish me well
You’ve gotta let me go

Are we human or are we dancers?
My sign is vital, my hands are cold
And I’m on my knees looking for the answer
Are we human or are we dancers?

Will your system be alright
When you dream of home tonight?
There is no message we’re receiving
Let me know, is your heart still beating?

Are we human or are we dancers?
My sign is vital, my hands are cold
And I’m on my knees looking for the answer

You’ve gotta let me know
Are we human or are we dancers?
My sign is vital, my hands are cold
And I’m on my knees looking for the answer
Are we human or are we dancers?

Are we human or are we dancers?
Are we human or are we dancers?

Wanna say something?

  • OMG!How can these people do such a thing!!!!!!!!!They’re heartless and self centred ***.

    I cried after watching the video.For the scumbags who ran over the little girl…may you get hit back with “Karma”!

    Even animals takes care of their young.We’re human beings born with a brain.

    Can this people think with their brain?or they’re just born without a sense of empathy!

    May this video be a wakeup call and reminder for all of us.
