  5. sadiki sumani should have just aceppted his fate…… he deserved it, he needed it…HIV/AIDS was his salvation…he just lost an opportunity…..he could have experienced sufferring to its fullest potential and then, DIE. death is actually a temporarly previlege and is guaranteed for averyone…….everyone who has ever lived is dead and there is no reason to think that anyone presently alive will be able to escape that same fate………….in this life, four things are guaranteed for everyone; suffering, sickness, old age,and death. this dead man chose to skip sickness which somehow, he, was destined to experience……it will follow him..its not over yet. it is far from over……….he has thousands of billions of years ahead of him…..so many lives……..even JEHOVAH himself is destined for some sort of death
