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

The New Era

Life without wisdom is one hell work. Some personalities are worthed to be remember no matter how far the country has grown. When we once lived in the now society, Mr Rabour will never be forgotten. Everyone was eroded in the mind living with alcohol and poverty. People never made it or never achieved in education because they never invested in it. Time came where Jaduong Rabour saw the future and changed how we thought. Many at the begining thought he was mad or insane though they complied. He would wake up early in the morning with a whip and thoroughly cain all the children boys and girls who never came to school or who ran away from school. To add pain to injury he would escort you home and cain your parents before you. This made people be innnovated and school oriented. No child never liked it to see the parents on the ground being cained and same to the parents. This gave birth to the students and professors that we are now and many more academecian.
