What is a friend?

A group of true friends I had the privilege of photographing a few weeks back.

What is a friend? This is something I’ve been asking myself for years. I’ve never truly known if the people in my life are true friends to me. In times like these, it’s important to remember a verse from the Bible (even if you aren’t a Christian):

Ephesians 4:29
“Don’t use foul or abusive language. Let everything you say be good and helpful, so that your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them.” (NLT)

This is good advice to everyone, no matter what chapter of life you’re in.

I can’t be sure if I’ve ever experienced a friend like this before. Isn’t that a sad thought? But I’ll be the change I want to see in the world (thanks, Gandhi) and strive to be this kind of friend myself.
