A good friend can't be replaced.
By Brayden DeMarco Period 4 and 5
The life of the loner.
Freak saved Max from his Dad, Killer Kane a mass murder. He tried to kill his son Max just like he killed Max's mother. Freak, had physical disabilities but he saved Max by tricking Max's Dad, Killer Kane into thinking that he had sprayed him with toxic acid. Freak outsmarted him with plain old vinegar.
Max helped him by playing with him and getting the helicopter from the tree for him. They both needed each other. Max needed a friend and a little help with thinking. Kevin or Freak needed legs, a bigger body and a friend. They were just what they both needed. They are Freak The Mighty!!!
Put yourself out there.
You need to learn to be accepting of yourself if you want people to be accepting of you. A great friend is a true gift. They can help you become the person that you want to be. Everyone struggles. It is important to remember this. When it seems like you just can't go on, it's good to have a friend to lend and ear and be there for you. It's also a great feeling to be able to be that friend. Be the person that helps someone through. You can't replace the joy that you can get from family and friends.
Friends can be the difference in a lifetime of loneliness or happiness.
Take the risk. You may get rejected, but you just might make the best friend you could ever have. I'm not saying that you won't have your problems, because just like life, people aren't perfect. You will have your ups and downs but a true friend will always be there to help you through it all. Never stop trying to be the type of friend that you would want to have. Be the best person that you can be and you will have no regrets.
