On 16 June 2011, International Business Machines Corp (IBM) announced that it would commemorate its centennial with a focus on giving back to the community. However, while 400,000 employees of IBM were celebrating, a former IBM employee Yuan Yipeng who is known as “the first person who fought discrimination against people with depression”, decided to take his own life on this day by jumping into Huangpu River at 7 o’clock in the evening.

Before he set off for the river, he posted a message on his microblog, “I’m on my way.  I’m a nobody.  I can not understand the feeling that the (IBM) Chief Executive may have had when he walked past my mother who was kneeling on the ground, got into his car and sped off.  Do please pass on this message to him: I love my mother, as much as you do!” Continue reading

On the sixth month of this year, the anger-fueled incident of the attempted suicide of former employee, Yuan Yipeng, left a momentary imprint in the minds of the people. However, like the resounding waves as his body struck the water’s surface, the white caps (at once evident and rippling), soon died down and became calm once more.
