Hi! It's Neel, and today I am going to be writing about friendship. When you make friends with someone you share a special bond. I have friends both near and far. For example, I have a penpal who lives in France. He did not reply to me for a while and I began to feel worried about him and sad that our penpal friendship might be over. I have known him for a couple months - we have never met, but we have been writing back and forth. So I sent him another message asking him if he was okay, and I was so glad to see his reply. I didn't know how much his friendship meant to me until he didn't reply for a couple weeks and I started to miss him. I now realize that we have developed a special and powerful bond. My message is to cherish your friendships. Je t'aime Arthur!!!
