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

Drug Trafficking And Abuse

It was all about when my sister had developed a bad behaviour of associating with a bad company. Who influenced her negatively. She lacked respect to the people. No one could tell her anything. She even said that she had had the freedom of doing whatever she needed. Elder people also talked to her about her freedom which a limited but she turned a deaf hear to everyone. One day, her company decided to avoid selling their drugs in local market but national market. They travelled to different parts of this country like Nairobi, Eldoret, Kisumu and among others. To tell you the reality, my sister not only being a drug raticer but also drug addict. For truly what goes around comes around. As busy as bees, negotiating for fair prices around our home, the police caught them. They opened their mouth wide enough to show air types of teeth. They hanged their heads in shame.Things happened very fast. The police handcutted them together with their drugs and took them to the police station. On asking their ages, the police were shocked because some of them like my sister were under the age of eighteen years. They were released after a hard torture. My sister decided to go back to school and fight against the illegal use of drugs and whenever she remembers the torture she under went, she regrets why she sold drugs illegaly. She always says that she will never forget that day until the world ends.
