When I was younger, about 8 years old, I met my best friend on a bus heading to Huntington, Long Island. She and I were registered in a fresh air program, where children from the Brooklyn Parish Church, went to Long Island to stay with families from our sister Parish Church in Long Island.
On the ride there we became fast friends, and two weeks later, we looked for each on the bus and sat next to each other where we talked about our last two weeks and the things we had seen and done.
Throughout the years, we remained in contact. For a period of time, we lost contact, but we found each other again, and it was like we never lost that time. Today, 51 years later, my dear friend Gladys and I are still the best of friends and we talk or text each other daily.
The point of this little story is that friendships nowadays are not the same as they were back then. There’s no trust or loyalty with some friendships nowadays. People or so-call friends stab each other in the back and worst air out their business about each other on social media.
Which leads to today’s questions:
What is friendship to you?
Do you have a long time friendship with someone?
