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

Betrayal

It was very painful to realise that my own brother was dating my fiance behind my back.After years of being together ,struggling together and supporting on another,my own blood brother decides to betray me by dating my fiance whom I had introduced to him.It was very painful. We had not talked to each other for the last two years until February this year when our mother called us together and asked us to release the anger,bitterness,pains and grudge we had on one another and embrace forgiveness. Her words were easy said than done but with time I had to forgive him and let it go.I forgave him and three months later i just feel like as days count my heart gets healed.
