I believe real friendship is an action of love – the outward concern and regard for others. It strengthens when overcoming trial and, like wine, it grows tenderer and becomes more robust over time. Even when there is no contact, real friendship does not wane, for while it is an act, it is not particularly based on activity.
In 1996, I was diagnosed with cancer – Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. At the time, I was single, earning a very good wage and spreading my good fortune around with those I considered friends. I considered dozens friends, and a handful even good friends. Nevertheless, I was soon to learn something the great playwright Euripides wrote over 400 years before Christ was born, “… prosperity is full of friends.”
