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

Lose Of The Woman

The lose of the woman I loved so much made me become a drunkard of the highest order or rank. Loosing simply meant that my life was meaningless and so to try and stop thinking about her, I got involved in heavy drinking something that made me loose my job and even the respect of my family. However thanks to my friend who never stoped to warn me about the effect of alcohol and the damaged it caused to my body. He also encouraged me and helped me see that her death was not the end of life and so I had to pick myself up and press on to the higher mark. Through those words of encouragement I chose to quit drinking and today am pressing to fulfill my dreams no matter what happened.
