Friendship means being friendly to one other
or making friends with one another.
Human beings are social animals. They do not live in isolation.
They need each other both physically and emotionally.
However,some people distort friendship
by forming small groups that are harmful to others,
or even to the whole community.
In the university some students from the same city or province
form an association to help each other.
But such associa- tions often exclude students from other parts of the country
and thus do not promote friendship in a broad sense.
True and lasting friendship is based on a more solid foundation.
Real friends share the same ideal.
While marching toward their common objective,they help each other.
If one makes a mistake,his friend will not hesitate to point it out of him,
because he knows the frank criticism will help him.
What we need is this type of genuine friendship.
