What is a friend?

This morning I received a call from a friend

who was in the ER last night.

She may have lost a child she carried.

So I hurried to care for her responsibilities.

Some would ask why I would do that.

Why wouldn’t I?

How couldn’t I?

Shouldn’t we help when someone is hurting?

Shouldn’t we weep when a friend hurts?
