In the world where we live, there are many problems. Political, economic, public, private, etc. But now, the serious problem is that, more and more people have the suicide attempt in the ivory tower.
This week more than 5 students suicided merely in Beijing. And most of them are postgraduate students in the most famous universities. In others’ eyes, they are excellent students and have bright future. But they chose to "fly" to another heaven.
What happened? Why suicide?
I can’t believe their choices.
This Tuesday, a girl postgraduate student jumped to death at the Science & Technology Building of BNU. I was having my class at the Electronic Building which is 100m far from the S & T Building then. I wasn’t conscious of what was happening at all. Till the evening, a schoolmate told me about that when we chatted. Oh, my God! Unbelievable! What a pity!
That girl will graduate from the College of Art and Communication in July. This college is the best art college in mainland China. And her research supervisor is a professor of high prestige in that field. Out of question, she will have a good job. And wonderful life, too. Unfortunately, she chose suicide.
I never heard of that girl before. Even I don’t know her name till now. But people around her gave her high praise. They said that she was a beautiful and good student. She did a lot of things in BNU. She got splendid achievements. Not only in study, but also in society work. According to their words, she was perfect. Such a nice girl chose suicide. Shouldn’t we consider a lot about this?
We don’t know what she did recently. We don’t know what she thought recently. However, we know that she was hurt deeply. She bore so heavy pressure that she couldn’t survive. Long time living under the heavy pressure beyond our imagination. That must be very very deep hurt. A poor girl.
What can I say? I don’t wanna criticize her death. Just wish her have a eternal rest. Amen!
And at school, what does Chinese education system give to us? Knowledge in textbooks and scores in examinations, then NOTHING else.
