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

Poisoned Mind

My son and I were in very bitter terms .Deep in me I longed for that day when i would just talk to my son and laugh together with him as a father and son. The mother who had poisoned his mind concerning me was not ready to reconcile .She had told him that I was a beast,a man responsible for their suffering and that i did not deserve any forgiveness. However with time,my son started changing after his pastor started to talk him, counselling him and telling him the importance of forgiveness. April this year,my son came to my house and told me that he had forgiven and embraced me ooh my really happy and thanked God.
