When someone says I am your friend, you’re my friend, let's be friends, friends to the end, friend me and so forth what are they saying? What is a friend? Who is a friend? The word friend is bantered around quite a bit and so I just wondered what most people feel or think a friend truly is. For instance are they your neighbors, your pets, your co-workers or fellow team mates? Just who are these friends we hold so dear? What does having or being a friend mean to you?
