I have seen hardship, i have tasted leadership but i think i like frienship. One of the reasons why so many marriages and relationships break up is because they lack that essential bond and sense of "frienship".
Every improvement starts from somewhere and it's started by someone.The best way to change a person is to first of all change your attitude towards that person. Most people want to change the world by making it a better place to live in but they fail to realize that they ought to change themselves first.
