    My Best Friend Died Dr. Munter's comments: The purpose of this assignment was to relate an event that changed the direction of your life. Not only does this student successfully accomplish this task, he does it with a certain amount of understatement. The instruction “to show, not tell” is beautifully and subtly completed. There is also a nice balance of long and short sentences, unusual similes, and the sense that the author allows the reader to view this event through the eyes of an eight-year-old

  • Best Friend

    It is no debate that love and friendship are the fundamental aspects of human existence. It is said that we can’t control the family that we are born into, but we surely can choose our friends. Luckily, on rare occasions, some friendships grow so strong and pure that we call the person with whom we share this bond as our best friend. A best friend is someone who can uplift your mood, inspire you, and make life seem fun even when you are going through the toughest of times.

    Who's Your Best Friend

    Different people have different expectations from their best friends. While some like their best friends to be wise and dish out sound life advice, others just want pleasant companionship. There is a popular saying that goes “dogs are man's best friend.” For a lot of people who feel empathy towards other species, pets such as a dog or a cat can be their best friend. A pet's love for you is pure and unconditional, and that's what makes them an amazing best friend. People who love to read and have an unquenchable thirst for knowledge believe books are a man's best friend. Books not only educate and entertain us but also impart values and build character. Environmentalists believe that trees are our best friends as they produce oxygen, provide us shade and shelter, and keep the temperatures pleasant. As you can see, the best friend doesn't always have to be a person. It could be any living or inanimate object that selflessly does things for you.

    If some studies are to be believed, if you have been best friends with someone for over seven years, then you would be best friends for life. Intrigued to learn more about friendship? Check out our repository of personal essays on best friends below:
