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

Independence

Its about the issure of slavery,it even surprised me when i here that in early years people were being sold.Why this happen was because the people who did the selling had more power and could do anything they wanted not knowing that they were in those peoples land.Even if it wer you how could youfeel,think of a situation where somebody from nowhere comes in your house and starts to control over your house,does it sound noraml,if no why should people do such thinks to others
