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

The Man Of God

No one around could believe it. I knew even if it were you, you would not believe it because this day they were accusing this man of sodomy. A man who has for years been known as a man of God, a man of church a pastor. This senior pastor had been said to be calling children for prayers and then having them sodomised. For me i cannot justify this story or i would rather call it romour because i only witnessed the man been beaten by the neighbors but i honestly did not witness him sodomising any child. But many claimed that he has been doing these, until the children's rights was forced to take this for investigation and the charges were ready for this man who called himself "man of God". It would be very bad and weird if these man has been doing this to this innocent children but i will let God judge him.
