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

Peace Negotiation

It was during the election of 2007 when there was clashes all over the country.Many people lost their life and their beloved ones others were left homeless without knowing where to start a new life.Over a thousands children become orphans, but other people did not see that they continued fighting over and over.There was no peace in the country although some people tried their best to bring peace but all was in vain, even some churches tried but there was still no change instead it turned over to them again. I remember when someone came to Kenya by president Obama to come and make peace in Kenya.When he come to Kenya he sat down with all leader and tried to make the negotiated to each other.He made peace between him Raila and Prudential Kibaki.Since Kofi Anan came to Kenya the was at least some change from clashes.The arrival of Kofi Anan made our country to live at least with some peace.
