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

Poor Roads

The day was very smart people could believe what happened.At that time the environment was as silent as the grave. people were traveling going to rural because of celebration of happy new year, unfortunately there was a lorry which lost its control and it rolled for several times.Within a twinkle of an eye people came to see what has caused the accident which killed three people.It had discovered that the wheel at the back dipped into a hole which had been damaged before.That day it never seen that it was a celebration day that people should sing, dance and give thanks to God.The roads are not well constructed thats why the accidents occur every now and then.The government should take action over the roads to spot the death rate of people in the country.We are not happy if our fellow Kenyans are dying at a very high rate yet we should discuss the problem among ourselves and the government to supply some money for construction of new.What i can request is that the government should help us abut the poor roads that we have in our area.
