Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:


On 21st May 2011 it was prophesied that it was to come to the end of the world.That's when i came to know that most people do not know more about the bible. Most people sold their properties in that on the very def they were to go to heaven.To me the question was why should they sell their properties for money and why the money because in heaven we wont be using money and why money and why should they sell it to other people cause if the end of the world comes it will come for everyone. For me i considered it ignorance of the highest order,because its like people don'y read the bible to know about it instead they wait for them to be told its like this and so .Most people took their lives and others are left with nothing.
