Wednesday afternoon when we got the news, our grandfather has died from a gunshot in his head. It was just an ordinary day for him, as told by our relative who phoned my mother.. He died in just few seconds from the hands of hired killer and gunned him down... I feel anger to the person who killed my grandfather without a second doubt and to the person who ordered to kill him. People these days who wants to be in a position do stupid things just to have everything they wanted. What a shame!

Thank you dawnald.... Neither us knows why was he killed like that.. But some says that it is because he has the higher chance of winning the election as a councilor.

How awful. If we are still killing people we disagree with, what does that say about our chances of survival as a whole? :-(

So sorry to hear about that, happening to your grandfather.. If i'm not wrong, your family is in the politics right?? I think that's the way how things work in the world of politics.. Power and money means everything.. As long as they benefit from something, they will do anything to get it.. Dun be too sad, and move on in life soon..

That is terrible, mz_Ira, and I'm so sorry for your loss. There are indeed some very horrible people in this world who are ruthless enough to do anything in order to gain the power they crave. I hope that those responsible for this awful crime are brought to justice.

My deepest condolences to you and family on the passing of your grandfather. Politics is a dirty game and when greed over power a person, they will do anything to grab the position. It is better to stay a low profile and not be a target of some hired killers. They are many power crazy people who find no happiness seeing others holding any top post.

Thank you Zandi458 and yes you are very right but then my grandfather chose to serve the public once again to help the people in his area. Unfortunately he's assasinated for that motive...... By the way, very well said!!
