The Happy Life and Violent Death of Grecil Buya
She excelled in school, finishing Grade Two with honors and with the award “Most Neat and Clean.”
She took on chores, like minding the carabao.
On March 31, the nine-year-old girl was killed by soldiers during an encounter with the New People’s Army.
The soldiers claimed the nine-year-old girl aimed an Armalite rifle at them, forcing them to shoot her.
Family and friends were saddened by Grecil’s death but are outraged at the allegation that she was a communist guerrilla.
