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

Attacked

I was walking with my brother going back home after a night club dance. As we approached our home, some seven men came and surrounded us. They got hold of me and started undressing themselves. I was terrified to see all of them undress ready to rape me. My brother became so frustrated and angry such that he started to fight them. He took a huge stone and hit one of them and as he struggled with them, they stabbed him to death. Seeing this, I fled calling for help. People came out and when the seven saw this they disappeared in a thin air. I was very frustrated because of what had happened to my brother who was trying to help me.
