From the Far Side of the Sun is an example of what true friendship can mean if you have the courage to reach out and embrace it. To forge the bonds of friendship and to hold that friendship close to your heart. To share your experiences, each becoming a stronger person for having shared those experiences with the other. True friendship is a rare thing. Few have the courage to reach out and grab it, to hold on to it. To even recognize that it has been offered to them. To realize that their lives would be richer for having had it. True friendship is to be there for the other in times of adversity as well as joy. True friendship is a precious thing to be guarded like a valued treasure.
