On a tragedy.

Be warned.
This is not a feel good post.
This is just purely me spilling my guts.
Don't read on if you are sensitive. It "contains material which you may find disturbing".

I've just seen this video of a little girl, probably 2 or 3 years old, getting hit by a mini van who then drives off. It's a busy enough street and people walk past her again and again. 18 people in total. Most walk around her. Some stop and look and then carry on. Another car comes by and drives over her legs again. The whole time, she is alive and moving. Someone finally drags her to the side of the road.

She died in hospital the following day.
This is the video link if you don't believe me.

I feel sick.
What kind of a world do we live in that we can walk past a little girl bleeding in the middle of the road as if she was a bit of road kill?

What kind of people are we? How can this be happening?

I'm lost for words to explain how I feel right now. I want to scream. I want to disappear. I want to explain to someone that these people and I are not from the same race. But we are. And I am ashamed of that.


  1. It is horrific and totally expected that people forget their humanity and do not regard life. being on autopilot and not feeling another human being can be no way to live. These people probably lacked the emotional fortitude to even know what to do. Sad for everyone involved, yet they probably feel nothing which is even more horrific.

    People are so set on getting where they want to be, they don't care whom is scattered to the side in their bid to get where they want to go. I hate people like that and have a radar to say the hell away from them.


Aaaah, you are leaving your opinion! I love it!
