Wang Yue / YueYue Has Died | China Beyond

Share this article :
2 year old Wang Yue died October 21, 2011

"Beyond" for Five Minute Friday Blog Post


Beyond the refuge of my little life, is a family that is mourning the loss of their child because of negligence, lack of empathy and honor. 2 year old Wang Yue / YueYue died today. Her poor little body to weak to fight; her brain dead from the traumatic incident of being run over by 2 vehicles and left for dead by 18 people that were afraid to help the child.

Afraid to help a child .. WHY ???

Her body laid there until one compassionate old woman stepped up and did what was right for that child. My heart is so burdened and my thoughts are far beyond my daily activities as all I can think about how devastated her mother and father must feel exactly at those times that I am thinking of this situation.

I watched the video and my heart broke. I hugged my little baby and wondered why the Chinese people live in such fear that they will not help an innocent child ... a toddler ... someone's baby girl abused and left out in the street?

I cried. I prayed. I blogged.

Others cried. Others prayed. Others blogged.

God's wisdom puts me at a loss for words when I understand that this is just one example of how people - all over the world - neglect their social responsibilities - spiritual responsibilities - humanitarian responsibilities - all of the time.

The "lack of morals in modern society" that the Chinese people feel they've lost, because of fear, is not far from where the United States and other countries have been for years as well. The difference is that they were noted for their Chinese honor code where our morale fiber has never meant much to the rest of the world.

Will we all ever get beyond this shame?

"Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven." Luke 6:37 (NIV)



In Motherly Love,
Mother Baby Child

I have purposely avoided this story because I just can't handle the pain of it. I shed so many tears when I first read of it, and I couldn't get it out of my head and heart.

Thank you for sharing on this topic. It's heartbreaking, but it is a sobering reminder to us all that human compassion is something we need to teach our children.

i can't help but feel mad at the 18 people who did nothing despite seeing the poor condition of Wang Yue... this incident really breaks my heart. those selfish people acted as if Wang Yue was just a piece of trash on the road. how inhumane!

I saw this story and it broke my heart too! But your verse in Luke 6 is so fitting. The world shouldn't judge a group of people because of a handful of people. But, it should inspire us to run even quicker to the hurting.

That is horrible!! Of course I don't understand what it is like to live in a country where I would fear running to help a child, but I am appalled so many stood and watched and did nothing. Oppressed societies are scary when even the most innocent of the innocent can't get help. It does make you so grateful to live in America.

Thanks for linking this up!

@Heather - I know :( That was my original reaction, too.

This was my first time hearing about this story. I can't even comprehend the emotions I'm feeling right now after watching the video. Why did so many just walk by? What is going on in their minds that they won't stop and help someone (especially a child)? I am so sick to my stomach, literally.
