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

Solution To Terrorists

There was a time when some places people feared much because of some inhuman activites which were taking place.Whenit reached in the evening no child or woman was to be out of home or nobody was to be at the river because if you were found even alone during the day or night, you were to be killed and your blood sucked, your tongue and reproductive organs cut off.This continued to happen and many bad bodies were discovered.If it was to go to school, you either move in a group or be escoted by your parent.Everybody was cowered and prayers and sacrifices were offered to God to punish the terrorists.One day in the evening a stranger came to our home.He was carrying a big bag, by my mind he was a terrorist.I welcomed him warmly by a prayer.Then we know each other and we spent the night with him.In the morning he told us that he has stopped terroring and he wanted to be saved.
