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

Love Conquers All

It is said that when people mature, there mode of thinking also changes. A friend of mine by the name Sophia had a relationship with a guy who used to do odd jobs and was also a school drop out. They loved each other so much and we used to think of them as the best couple. When my friend entered the university, she told me that she was not comfortable with having the relationship continue as the boyfriend she had was not thinking in the same way as she was. She also told me that she had found another guy whom she loved. Later the girl went ahead and told the guy bluntly that she no longer wanted to be involved with her. The guy could not believe he got so furious and went away. They quarreled later and I went to stop them from fighting. He calmed down and whey they talked, they sorted their issues are now back as friends.
