A good friend can't be replaced.

By Brayden DeMarco Period 4 and 5

The life of the loner.

Max was a loner. People made fun of him saying that he is stupid, slow, and dumb. It did not help that his body was growing faster then his small brain that keep him in 7th grade for year after year. That's what life was for Max until Freak came along to teach max to have fun, imagine and learn.

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.

I know it can be hard to put yourself out there to make new friends. It can be scary if you think that your different and that no one will accept you. The longer you wait to put yourself out there, the harder it will be. Your social skills could get worse and worse until you may not even know how to talk to someone.

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.

Be the best you can be.

Best friends are the people in your life that help you for the rest of your life. A good friend will help you be a better person. They will help you find your strengths. Friends will be there forever.

Friends can be the difference in a lifetime of loneliness or happiness.

When your time on earth has come to an end you won't have regrets if you have spent it being a good person and a good friend. You will never regret the time you spent making memories with others but you will regret a lifetime of loneliness if you fail to put yourself out there.

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.
