Family relationships are vital, and true friendships are indispensable. People say true love is the rarest thing on this earth; they have not experienced true friendship. A friendship where you are more then friends and even more then sisters, you are two halves of one whole. When I first received this assignment my immediate thought was “who can I write about?” and “what family member should I write about?” I though maybe I can write about my mom but I already wrote about her, then I though maybe I could write about my dad but there was not much to try about him and then I though I could write about my cousin Ellen but that did not sit right with me. I went through all my family members or so I though until I realized that my family does…show more content…
The other kids would pick on her and to this day I still don 't understand why. She thinks its because they thought she was a cry baby and a princess but I think it was because she was alone and new. I had my brother so no one dared picked on me when I first arrived but she had no one. Yet, because they picked on her we became even closer. As the days went by we would spend almost ever waking hour together. We would play house/school, take our stuffed dogs for a walk and play board games. She became one of the most important people in my life in a matter of weeks. Its scary how fast she took over my world and turned it around. Unfortunately our paradise did not last. About a little more then a year went by after we met that I had to move 200 miles away to LI. Some friendships would have weakened and disappeared but no ours, our friendship only became stronger. At first we would talk on the phone but then I got skype and we would talk every possible hour on it. We would talk about school, boys, friends, teachers, classes, you name it we did it.

Mira and Bharati, two sisters from Calcutta have that similar relationship. In the tale the author tells a story about two sisters and how one embraced America and the other didn 't and how one changed and the other stayed mostly the same. This tale reminds me of my friendship with Diana because we are like Mira and Bharati. Just like them, we came from a different country to America to seek a better education and, just like them, we were affected differently. At the beginning of our friendship “ we were almost identical in appearance and attitude. We dressed alike, in saris; we expressed identical views on politics, social issues, love and marriage in the same Calcutta convent school accent” but as time went by we changed. Diana embraced the rock, the metal and the more pessimistic view of America, I embraced the country music, love for romantic movies, and the more optimistic view of America. We are like ying and yang, balancing each other every step of the way. But there is one thing that never changed for us that changed for the sisters from Calcutta we both still love our country Ukraine. Diana and I would never trade it for anything. Diana Splavnyk is one of the most important people in my life. She is my rock and my world. We might fight everyday, and might not know why we are friends.
