Stress Trenches

By a male, 16-21 years old, in Nairobi, Kenya
Map of STRESS TRENCHES One fine evening after school, we were sitting with my friends near a bench.Soon after we realized it was stinking.We looked at each other with our bent noses and knew what to do. We had the responsibility to better our environment.We cleaned the trench for a strench of above fifty miles, the business women who were selling their fast moving commodities were pleased with our creative resolution. They paid us some amount which we shared. This boosted our morale and so we continued with it everyday.The air in the area started freshening.Never the less one of my friend's father caught him rummaging through the dirty trenches with a rake.He beat him openly and told him to go and wash.This action demorolised us and at last we downed our tools.
