COMMENT | So the conversation I had with my seven-year-old daughter yesterday afternoon was a little bit unanticipated.
“Pops. Why did someone want to shoot the old prime minister of Japan?” Alethea asked me.
“I don’t know. Maybe the gunman doesn’t like him,” I said.
“Why must he shoot him pops? I don’t like a lot of people, but I don’t shoot them. I just don’t play with them lah,” she said.
“Do you even know how to shoot a gun?” I asked.
“No. I’m not even strong enough to shoot Dai Ga Jie’s Nerf gun,” she replied.
Only seven years old, and my daughter already sounds like she’s wiser than so many grownups in the world, especially the individual who shot former prime minister of Japan Shinzo Abe yesterday while he was giving a speech while campaigning for the election. If he didn’t like Abe, then just don’t play with him. It’s as simple as that.
