Friends are one of the greatest
treasures we have in life. We choose our friends and share ourselves with them
in good times, bad times and through every day life. Friends can be people we
meet at school, work, neighbors, parents, brothers or sisters, your spouse, even
many, making friends isn't easy, and for all of us, it's hard work keeping friendships
healthy. Friendship Day is an opportunity to remember the important contribution
friends make in our lives, and to let your friends know how much you value and
appreciate their friendship.
of the most important things to remember about friendships is that the best ones
benefit both friends. Friendship is about sharing - remember to be a good listener,
too. In order to have a friend you have to be a friend.
Friendship Day, do something special with your friend. You might do something
fun, or do something together for your community. Doing things to help create
a more peaceful, just and sustainable world with friends is doubly rewarding.
You'll be helping to create a better world, and strengthening the bonds of your
friendship at the same time.
