I think I know the friend of whom you speak. A young friend who has lived at least ten lives worth of experience, pain and hopefullness.
I think that is the thing that I like most about this friend, that he has kept such a strong faith...shaking and quaking at times, sure, but a strong faith just the same.
I will, I will join my voice with yours and others, to uplift and keep him strong in his decisions and resolves.
Thanks for reminding us.
