Beyond the Bullets - Death - ..A family member strokes the face of Kayog Kanapio, 53, during his funereal in the home of his relatives on June 2, 2009.  Kanapio had fled his home four times in the last two years and died of repertory failure while staying at an evacuation in Datu Gumbay, in the province of Maguindanao.  The shortage of food and medicine combined with the unsanitary living conditions claims the lives of many at the evacuation centers, while the actual fighting does little to either the Moro Islamic Liberation Front or the Armed Forces of the Philippines.
