This word has been a point of contention in my mind recently. I am a firm believer that we are lucky indeed if we find more than one person in this world that we can call friend, in the deepest since of the word friend. This kind of friend would lay down in front of a car for you. This kind of friend would stick by your side and defend you even if you are wrong. This kind of friend fights it out with you and calls you the next day because you are like family and neither of you would let a fight break that apart. This kind of friend can walk into your house without asking and will always answer your call. This kind of friend would never cast you aside when they met a girl, even a girl they were crazy about. This kind of friend is so very rare.
