If you have to ask, then no, YOU must not have.

I think you have to be a good friend, to have good friends. I have traveled around the world and placed myself in places that you could very well die. I knew a friend was headed into Iraq and I knew the job he was faced with. I decided to not retire because of this and when we returned he told the Chaplin and the soldiers around us that if it hadn't been for me, he would have killed himself during the deployment. I consider him a great friend and brother and I know he would go around the world to save my life as well. That is not the only real friend I have. I have many in Chautauqua County that would place their life in jeopardy for me just as I would for them. I call them brothers and sisters as well, even though we arenít related. SO do we have real friends. I sure do.

PS Thanks for the positive topic:) its great

Yes, I think that people have GOOD friends. Life is just faster paced now and how we communicate is different. I think that people from small communities have and are better friends than people in larger urban communities for the most part. There is something wonderful and special about growing up in a small community that you take with you with you no matter where you live and you are able to instill that in your children. I grew up in a small community but instilled in my children small town values. My three children are all grown and in their 30's and were raised in a large town and are still good friends with people from high school, and I could contact my best friend from school and there is no question that she would come to my aid and I would for her. Good topic.

I really appreciate the input. I used to feel the same way as most of you. But recently someone whom I have been through thick and thin with pushed the envelope. NOW I am not so sure. Yes, I have had some wonderful friends in my life and some still. I just was curious if you can really call some one a good friend without regretting it later! Are you better off keeping a wall built around you? No one can hurt you. Don't give the chance. I am not completely against the friend thing. I still have some that I do feel are good friends. I agree you have to be a good friend to have them. Will continue to be for some, anyway. Thanks for the positive input.

True friends are hard to find. Most especially in this county are a friend as long as you are doing for them and they are looking you in the face.

I too have been burned by people who I thought were friends, but I have tried not to become bitter and build that total wall around myself. Now I am more careful and I do not share as much about myself and therefore am not so vulnerable. However, several years ago, I came across a new friend that I had never met, and at the time neither one of us lived in Chautauqua County, but as we both grew up there, we had that in common, We have become good friends and that friendship is something I would have missed out on if I had a total wall. Hang in there and don't give up on all of the human race. There are still plenty of good people out there. Be yourself and do the things that make you feel good about yourself.

My mother use to say, If you can't say anything good don't say anything at all. If we all followed that, there wouldn't be anything that someone could repeat that you wouldn't say to their face. So when you have that cup of coffee, stay positive........

Mary had a little bird,
With feathers bright and yellow,
Slender legs-upon my word,
He was a pretty fellow!

Sweetest notes he always sung,
Which much delighted Mary;
Often where his cage was hung,
She sat to hear Canary.

Crumbs of bread and dainty seeds
She carried to him daily,
Seeking for the early weeds,
She decked his palace gaily.

This, my little readers, learn,
And ever practice duly;
Songs and smiles of love return
To friends who love you truly.
