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


Brenda was a girl who was kidnapped by some men. The men were looking her chillingly. Without dilly-dallying her friend was passing near by the place that she was. Surely,"who is that?" she shouted as loud as possible. She wanted to arrive there so that she can see what was taking place. Arriving there she saw wonders. Really wonders never cease. In a spur of a second she ran as fast as a deer up to the police station to report what had happened. Hardly had the officers seen that, when they came to help her. Immediately when they arrived there they found Brenda being tied at a tree and the kidnappers were seated near her. At that time the police caught them and took them to the police station. Arriving there, Brenda said what had happened. As soon as she finished, the kidnappers were taken to the jail while Brenda came back home. As she was coming she told the people that not to walk alone.
