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

Transformed

When dialogue fails,violence or mob justice can help change someone.My brother Kenneth was one of the most dangerouse man or criminal in our community.People had tried to talk to him including me but he never gave hid to there advise and so life to him became just a life of killing,stealing and destroying a replica of the devil himself. One night,things went wrong for him when a group of young men ganged up with machetes and pangas with a solemn vow to destroy him together with his gang with no exception of his wife or property. At midnight,the gang went to my brothers house and killed his gang and burnt his house and his family in it.The events were too painful to my brother who managed to escape and went to the capital city where he went to a church and gave his life to Christ and today he is one of the reformed criminals and servant of God.
