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

Death Behind The Back

I was sitting with my girlfriend on a bench in this beautiful garden that is at Lukonyi when this cobra snake came behind her with its mouth open ready to attack and bite her on the neck. I was shocked but I just composed myself and asked her not to move an inch.Infact I asked her to close her eyes because I wanted to give her a gift. She did follow my instructions and in a flash of a second,I stretched my hand and got hold of the snake on the neck and hit its head on the bench thrice and killed it.When she opened her eyes,she was shocked beyond words and she just sat there without a word with her eyes wide open.
