Following are the selected comments about Yue Yue's death on Weibo, China's mirco-blog.
Yang Lan (Talk Show Hostess): She never caused harm to anyone, but has got so hurt. It (the tragedy) is the pain of her family, and a shame on society. Now she is finally free of the pain.
Li Chengpeng (Author): A two-year-old girl run over in street in Libya is a "tragedy caused by war", a "result of failed struggle against life". In our country people debate over indifference passer-by, ruthless drivers, guilty parents, law loopholes, etc. The government then stands up and condemns those who disregard life and compliment those who lend a hand. Then the street is back to normal and the children keep dying.
Sun Yang (Swimming Athlete): There is no traffic jam in heaven. Yue Yue, please have a safe trip there. I wish there is more love and less apathy, and mishaps are away from those kind-hearted for life.
Liu Xiaoqing (Actress): Another innocent life is gone. She is so young, just in the first chapter of life. I am so sorry about that.
Han Qiaosheng (Soccer commentator): I was motivated by a lawyer's words: "Imprisonment of those who turn away from saving a life should be written into the law". I cannot agree any more. The driver should have his legal responsibilities pursued; otherwise society is without any future.
Editor surnamed Xu: We should stop complaining and rethink about ourselves.
Editor surnamed Guan: We should try our best to help others who are in need. Moral is not law.
GuoFugui&ChengXingfu: If the first passer-by saved Yue Yue... But it is too late to say "if".
Shierxiangshuyu: Yue Yue dies and we are still living. We should not give up our nice human nature and kindness, or we will feel shame to be a human being.
Kanzhenishuaku: Where are the hit-and-run drivers? I haven't read any news about them.
SXyaoyaoDanae: When all people blame the 18 passers-by but not the parents who did not take enough care of Yue Yue? Some passers-by acted in a wrong way but it is not their fault, for some people who save others were considered to be hit-and-run drivers. People are afraid to do that.
Producer Wang Xia: Do not say any more mean words! I hope that no similar thing happen from now on.
sesehou: Yue Yue, maybe we all should bow to you. Thank you for letting us to know about our guilt.
Yuyunalan: How can the parents let a two-year-old girl to walk on the road alone? Young children are too weak to face many dangers. All the parents should take enough care of their children, for a moment of oversight may cause a tragedy of a whole family.
Yanjunme: Yue Yue, you have such a 2-year short life. Do not blame the unconcerned world and people's hearts. Bless you good life in paradise, where no cars run about.
