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

Planned Robbery

It was one of John's major rules never to give a lift while on the road to strangers. But this time round, it was different. The women seemed to be in trouble with her car, and trouble with car's happen to be his business. As he stopped and before getting out of his toyota corolla pick-up a gang of about four men from the bushes around, attacked him. he was hauled across the road and robbed. Only to discover that all these was a set up. I was only two miles away from the incident. As the gang disappeared, I got out of my hiding place and ran towards Mr. John to assist. I took my phone and called the police.
