Friends forever?

That was then, this is now

My thoughts about friendship and synthesis

I believe that friends are important in life. Friends should always be there for you when you are going through a hard time, but enjoy them while they're there because they might leave. In the book "That was then, this is now" Bryon and Mark are best friends until they start growing apart. Some friendships last for a very long time but others don't.
