Gandhi died when he was at a prayer meeting in Delhi. He was walking up to the top
of a platform. Everyone bowed down to as low as his feet. He gave everyone a Hindu greeting by putting his
hands together. Then a young man rushed up and pushed over Gandhi's guard. He ran right up to Gandhi and
aimed a pistol at him. The young man fired three shots at him. Only seconds later Gandhi was dead!
Everyone was mad. The young man was sentenced to death. Gandhi's sons did not want the man to be hung
because they knew that if Gandhi was still alive he would have forgiven him. They did not listen so the
man was hung. It is as Gandhi said,"I cannot intentionally hurt anything that lives, much less
human beings, even though they may do the greatest wrong to me."
