When you have a good friend that really cares for you and tries to stick in there with you,
you treat them like nothing. Learn to be a good friend because one day you're gonna look up
and say I lost a good friend. Learn how to be respectful to your friends, don't just start
arguments with them and don't tell them the reason, always remember your friends will be
there quicker than your family. Learn to remember you got great friends, don't forget that
and they will always care for you no matter what. Always remember to smile and look up at
what you got in life.
