I’ll share my fruit roll-up…

…if you wanna be my friend.

Remember when it was that easy to make friends? We were six and didn’t know much about mutual benefits or socioeconomic circles or networking. We just saw someone who could be a friend, asked if they’d like to be friends, sealed the deal with a treasured snack or toy and then did what friends do. Share food. Share spoils. Share adventure. Share stories. You got into fights. You made up. You stood up for each other. It was a simple commitment to just do what friends do for each other. That’s it.

Whatever happened to friendships like that?
