I am sitting outside in the breeze and everything is quiet and temperate. I am thinking about the girls’ gymnastics team and how they won the gold medal and how emotional it was. How they did it all together. Lots of people talked about their athleticism and grace, and sparkles. But what struck me was their friendship- how close they were. How they helped each other. I don’t have many friends- just two or three- but I love my friends. I would like to have more friends. I am lonely for this comraderie.
