What is a best friend?

Rubie Gibson, Reporter

In my opinion, a best friend is a person who never goes behind your back. A best friend is someone who is always there, no matter what the circumstance is. Our school needs to learn how to be true friends. Don’t get me wrong, there are some true friends out there, but everyone needs to learn how to be true.

I think that some people try their best to be good friends. People just need to learn it takes more than saying, “I’m a true friend” to actually be one.

Someone who is a true friend stands up for you. When others try to hurt you emotionally or physically, they do everything they can to make sure you stay safe. They don’t care who is trying to harm you; they will defend you anytime, anywhere. If they can help you, they’ll do it without reservation or reward.

Good friends accept you for who you are. Friends stick around during the good times and the bad. A real friend celebrates life with you. True friends will make the time to see you. A real friend will tell you the truth, even if you don’t like it. A true friend encourages you to achieve your goals.

I just want everyone to be true, even though it’s hard sometimes. You have to try your best!
