Originally this was for a contest. And it was "what it means to be strong". But I glanced through the contest submissions folder and I saw "what it means to be a friend", and I started thinking...
And I realized that there's a big difference between a friend and a best friend. There's a difference between someone you meet and know and someone that you meet and grow with.
I would know. I nearly lost my best friend over an event in which we both acted stupidly, and when I tried to fill that hole with a "friend"...it just wasn't the same.
This is for Kayla, my best friend.
I love you, and I missed you.
