"A WORLD UNSEEN"



Some days ago
Came to public a video
Showing a scene that shocked countless people around the world
Here its story...

In a narrow and busy street of a market zone in China
A two years old little girl appears walking
Lost of her parents

Suddenly, a van comes
And hits the girl
The front tire passes over her tiny body
Then the driver stops for a second
Looks, sees blood on the floor
Assumes that "whatever" it was
Was already dead
So keeps going
The rear tire also hits the girl

The van goes away
Leaving behind
The little girl's bloody body
In spite of her injuries she is still alive

Then, for several minutes
It is possible to see a parade of people
Walking in the street
Some passed by the girl on the dirty floor
As she was not there
Others looked at the body and kept walking
As "that" was not their business
A total of eighteen people
EIGHTEEN!!
Completely ignored the injured girl
As it was just an obstacle along the way
That did not deserve any attention

Then, another car comes and crashes the girl's body again
And moves away
So far, nobody seems to care about
The almost paralized body
Left on the floor
A world unseen
So vulnerable being who was unable to ask for help
Forgotten in her unberable suffering

Finally
Between the purposefully "blind"
Comes a woman who lives in the streets to collect recyclable items
Sees the girl and removes her from the middle of the street
The ONLY sensitive soul in that ocean of lethargic beings!

As soon as the woman puts the little girl's body aside
Her mother comes and rushes with her to the hospital
The body looks like of doll's body
So flexible as it had no bones

The girl arrived alive in the hospital
And fought for her life for some days
Yesterday she lost her battle and passed away
Did not survive her horrific injuries...

This real story illustrates the tragedy of the world we live
A world full of people who simple lost their capacity
To have empathy to one's suffering
Those eighteen empty beings
Which crossed that street
Ignoring completely that so fragile life laying on the floor
Are just a sample of the kind of people which seem 
To be ignorant about what compassion means

I would completely understand if all those people
Did not know what to do
With the girl's injuries
It is more than understandable
But
What is unacceptable is that they did not even try to call for help!!
Their coldness was unbelievable!!
Heartless souls!

How scary this scenery
This perspective of the way
Some "human" beings have turned to
Just robots that can only see themselves
It is a wake up call to all of us
For us to learn the consequences of indiference
If each one of us put our onw feet in that girl's shoes
We will have the exactly feeling of
How unhuman some people became
How individualistic, merciless, insensitive
It is like they had lost their humanity completely!

How shocking!!
How degrading!!!
That life could have been saved
If the first person had called for help
But each passed minute diminished
The girl's chances to survive
All of that could have been avoided
If compassion lived there in those individuals!

If we look those 18 people
Through the eyes of that girl
We would see the human's darkness
The pain and dispair of being ignored in a moment 
When one's existence is in risk
The ultimate need of human's humanity!

An "expert" wrote an article about this event
Trying to justify people's indiference in that case
By saying that with the rise of population growth in big cities
The tendency is each individual becomes  more egotistical.
I disagree!
One thing is to be busier, another is to be cold
Nothing justify lack of humanity!
We came to this world equiped with a capacity to react to suffering
To put ourselves in one's shoes
Just a minimum of sensitivity is needed
To avoid tragedies like the little chinese girl's
That is cruelty!
It shows that some people have become
So self-centered
That are forgetting how to relate
To communicate
To be human with another
Our society is turning to a world of cold robots
That only react to their "self-command"

The truth is that in some aspects
Humanity have excelled
As in Science, Technology
But in other aspects
Like the capacity of being human
Which means to have empathy
Have walked backwards
To the most primitive stages of a being
When all were purely brutalized
Moved by only instincts of survival
Nothing else!
With this raw mentality:
"As far as mine existence is guaranteeded
I dont care about other people's existence
Even if I have the means to do something for others
I wanna be happy
I dont care if others cannot
I wanna be rich
I dont care if others will live in povert and famine their whole lives
I want all the best for me
I dont care if it will cost the sacrifice of many lives to get it
I want to be loved
I dont care if others need to feel this way too
I want to belong
I dont care if to belong I will have to exclude others
I want to be seen
I dont care to be blind to others as far as I get the spotlights over me
I dont care about that person dying
As far I can keep living!
I dont care about other's suffering
As far as I am protected and well
I dont care about lying, deceiving, giving pain, being selfish
As far as I get what I want
And have my feelings saved of being hurt"

Many, many people between us think this way
Imagine to be in need
In a world made only of these kind of individuals
Can you imagine the hell it would be???
If you can and are worried about it
I am sure you will be change your demeanor toward
The person who is beside you, in front of you, behind you
If all of us try to be good to others
Without worrying about how they look or what they have or how they can benefit us
We will surely make this world a better place to all live in
We will guarantee that each and every individual's world
Will be seen
It is what will save the world of a tragic future
This is what that little chinese girl's story
Teaches us
To learn or re-learn to be humans by witnessing the lack of humanity in others
She had to lose her so young life to leave this legacy to us!

Absolutely heartbreaking!!

I hope her soul is in heaven
Where the kingdom of love and justice exists
Amen!
