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

Hijacked

Sometimes in the month of March, I was hijacked on the road while coming back fom a revival meeting in our church. The thugs ordered me to remove all my cloths and hand them over to them. By goodluck there was a watchman in a nearby building who saw them attack me. He took his club and steathly walked to where we were and ambushed them. The three guys felt overpowered and ran for safety. I dressed up my clothes and the watchman escorted me to my house.
