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

Rain Is Not A Bother

It was on sixth of last month this year when we travelled to one of my friends function at her rural areas.we were woken up by the rain at about 3:30am on Tuesday morning which was being driven hard into our tent by the wind.We scrambled first to keep the equipment and then ourselves dry It was naturally the first story on our lips in the morning but my friends laughed and told us that the best way to deal with the rain is to remain in one position .even if still inside the tent.one of my friend said it works all time unless of course you begin to feel as if you are floating.which means you could be swept away by floods but the rain didnot stop our function.
