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.

You who killed my mother.
Never did I, a nobody, decide to give up the revenge. Wherever you go, stay in IBM, or not, will appear to you any second.
She beard all kinds of sufferings during her life time. In the last two years, she was exhausted, and the illness tortured her. She died with her eyes open, not able be closed by others. She couldn’t talk during the last four months, left this world with no last words. She had no religious belief, the only thing she believed was I could have a fair life. My desperation during the last seven years made her heart broken. She desperately tried to save me from fear, but the outside world rejected her again and again in cold. She has really done her best.
May God harbor her and bless her rest in peace. Amen.
