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

Neighbourhood Murder.

Back in the old days life was not that easy. Meaning you had to work hard in order to achieve what you get. At those times dad was very keen and strict. He never misused his money that carelessly he was very observant. We lived at a big plot where we share toilet and bathroom with several people. Infact back in those day even to get electricity at your house was a very big issue.We used to have problem because tenants used not to pay their bills much less for electricity. So our plot was ever dark. It was located at a very narrow path and without forgetting robbers used to pass there. So one time at night as usual we were making stories. Then a vehicle passed our gate so fast, that I saw was I white car. Before minutes could pass the next thing we went to see whats up. A man had been robbed by thieves and then killed. He was shot at the back of his head. The robbers had stolen his vehicle leaving him half dead and later dieing. Yes in deed we lacked security at our place. We tried to help but it was too late and that path continued to be dangerous so we had to do something to stop all those. People decided to block the path so that this there could be no path anywhere. But to be honest it was very difficult to understand.
