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

The Unfortunate End

James and John were going through a lot as children in the face of their father who had married a step mother. This women caused their father not to take them to school and even ended up beating them each and every evening without no reason. One time they escaped and went to town in an attempt to run a way from the continued troubles in their home that kept on making their lives harder and harder each and every day. It did not take long before news came that they were dead and their father had to take the responsibility of transporting their bodies back in the village for burial as they faced heavy criticism from the entire village.
