  • A story about friendship

    I just got this on an email and thought I wud share it with you guys. It's a story about friendship and how much it really does mean and how small gestures can mean a lot without you even realising.


    > > > One day, when I was a freshman in high school, I saw
    > > > a kid from my class was walking home from school. His
    > > > name was Kyle. It looked like he was carrying all of his
    > > > books. I thought to myself, "Why would anyone bring
    > > > home all his books on a Friday? He must really be a
    > > > nerd."
    > > >
    > > > I had quite a weekend planned (parties and a football
    > > > game with my friends tomorrow afternoon), so I
    > > > shrugged my shoulders and went on.
    > > >
    > > > As I was walking, I saw a bunch of kids running toward
    > > > him. They ran at him, knocking all his books out of his
    > > > arms and tripping him so he landed i n the dirt. His glasses
    > > > went flying, and I saw them land in the grass about ten
    > > > feet from him. He looked up and I saw this terrible
    > > > sadness in his eyes .
    > > >
    > > > My heart went out to him. So, I jogged over to him and
    > > > as he crawled around looking for his glasses, and I saw
    > > > a tear in his eye. As I handed him his glasses, I said,
    > > > "Those guys are jerks. They really should get lives." He looked
    > > > at me and said, "Hey thanks!" There was a big smile on his face.
    > > > It was one of those smiles that showed real gratitude.
    > > >
    > > > I helped him pick up his books, and asked him where
    > > > he lived. As it turned out, he lived near me, so I asked him
    > > > why I had never seen him before. He said he had gone to private
    > > > school before now.
    > > >
    > > > I would have never hung out with a private school kid
    > > > before. We talked all the way home, and I carried some
    > > > of his books. He turned out to be a pretty cool kid. I
    > > > asked him if he wanted to play a little football with my
    > > > f riends... He said yes. We hung out all weekend and the
    > > > more I got to know Kyle, the more I liked him, and my
    > > > friends thought the same of him.
    > > >
    > > > Monday morning came, and there was Kyle with the
    > > > huge stack of books again. I stopped him an d said,
    > > > "Boy, you are gonna really build some serious muscles
    > > > with this pile of books everyday!" He just laughed and
    > > > handed me half the books.
    > > >
    > > > Over the next four years, Kyle and I became best
    > > > friends. When we were seniors, we began to think
    > > > about college. Kyle decided on Georgetow n, and I
    > > > was going to Duke. I knew that we would always be
    > > > friends, that the miles would never be a problem. He
    > > > was going to be a doctor, and I was going for business
    > > > on a football scholarship.
    > > >
    > > > Kyle was valedictorian of our class. I teased him all the
    > > > time about being a nerd. He had to prepare a speech for
    > > > graduation.
    > > >
    > > > I was so glad it wasn't me having to get up there and
    > > > speak. Graduation ! day, I saw Kyle. He looked great. He
    > > > was one of those guys that really found himself during high
    > > > school. He filled out and actually looked good in glasses.
    > > > He had more dates than I had and all the girls loved him.
    > > > Boy, sometimes I was jealous.
    > > >
    > > > Today was one of those days. I could see that he was
    > > > nervous about his speech. So, I smacked him on the back
    > > > and said, "Hey, big guy, you'll be great!" He looked at me
    > > > with one of those looks (the really grateful one) and smiled.
    > > > "Thanks," he said.
    > > >
    > > > As he started his speech, he cleared his throat, and
    > > > began. "Graduation is a time to thank those who helped
    > > > you make it through those tough years. Your parents,
    > > > your teachers, your siblings, maybe a coach...but mostly
    > > > your friends. I am here to tell all of you that being a
    > > > friend to someone i s the best gift you can give them. I
    > > > am going to tell you a story."
    > > >
    > > > I just looked at my friend with disbelief as he told the
    > > > story of the first day we met. He had planned to kill
    > > > himself over the weekend. He talked of how he had
    > > > cleaned out his locker so his Mom wouldn't have to do
    > > > it later and was carrying his stuff home.
    > > >
    > > > He looked hard at me and gave me a little smile.
    > > >
    > > > "Thankfully, I was saved. My friend saved me from
    > > > doing the unspeakable."
    > > >
    > > > I heard the gasp go through the crowd as this handsome, popular
    > > > boy told us all about his weakest moment.
    > > >
    > > > I saw his Mom and dad looking at me and smiling that same
    > > > grateful smile. Not until that moment did I realize it's depth.
    > > >
    > > > Never underestimate the power of your actions. With
    > > > one small gesture you can change a person's life. For
    > > > better or for worse.
    > > >
    > > > God puts us all in each other's lives to impact one another
    > > > in some way. Look for God in others.

            ive seen taht one before...i think i twas in the chicken soup book...but the story can relate to a lot of us if we think deeper into it. every move we ever make..every thought we ever think...every word we ever speak...inpacts someone...you just gotta learn who and how

                              I've read it before, actually... but it gave me chills. Its such a nice story.
                              Be more concerned with your character than your reputation... Your character is who you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are.
