Slain 11 year old laid to rest

The sixth child to be killed in the past two years as a result of street violence was laid to rest this afternoon. Eleven year old Daniel Matura, a standard three student of the Muslim Community Primary School, was churched at the Muslim Masjid on Central American Boulevard where family, peers and friends were overwhelmed with grief. According to the Muslim tradition, the mourners in attendance were asked to remove their footwear before entering the mosque to pay last respects to Daniel.  Others remained outside until the short service was over. The coffin was later transported to the Lord Ridge Cemetery via horse and carriage. Following closely behind were groups of family and friends. Matura Jr. was shot dead on Monday, as he was walking near his home on Central American Boulevard. Police say the minor’s death was a revenge plot gone wrong. They have since arrested and charged his cousin, Andrew Willoughby for the crime of murder. The other five murdered minors are eight year old Marquis Mahler, fourteen year old Helen Yu, eight year old Eyannie Nunez, nine year old Joshua Abraham and nine year old Aaron Myvett Pope.

    Everything time some one murder a child or any human God is getting more mad at us because we are supposed to love one another not hurt or kills bcuse we wouldn”t like if anyone murder or hurt any one of our family member and that child was an innocent person he didn”t even get to live his life. My paryes goes out to the family, my his soul rest in eternal peace.

    And the law should deal with that person severly.

    MY FELLOW BELIZEANS, ITS TIME FOR US TO GET ON OUR KNEES AND PLEAD TO THE HEAVENLY FATHER FOR MERCY, LET US PRAY THAT THE GOOD AND FAITHFUL LORD WILL FILL OUR PEOPLE WITH LOVE AND FORGIVENESS, BELIZE IS IN DESPERATE NEED OF FORGIVENESS, AND YES GOD HEAR THE CRIES OF THE FAITHFUL, AND SEES THE BLOOD RUNNING OF THE INNOCENT.
    THIS IS MY PRAYER FOR MY BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY AND MY BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE.
    THE ENEMY IS STEALING AND LYING TO OUR PEOPLE, BUT GOD SEND HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON ANOINTED WITH POWER TO SAFE HEAL AND GIVE LIFE AND LIFE IN ABUNDANCE.

    GOD WORD WILL NEVER RETURN EMPTY IT SHALL BE FULFILLED AS LONG AS WE BELIEVE HE IS THE ANSWER TO OUR SOCIAL PROBLEMS.

    @ Cliff, wasn’t a woman killed recently with Pinky, by another gang leader Arthur Young???? You say they are not suppose to “harm kids, women or elders,” well that “unwritten code of honor” seem to have been gone out the window a longgggg time ago, no more “honor” in what they do….. just plain “cold-blooded killers!!!” My prayers goes out to ALL BELIZEANS, in fact the entire world. These are some trying days we are ALL living in!!!!
