Day 21

Remembering a friend.
I just received an email today tell me of the passing of a friend. We met in college my junior year when I returned from my study aboard in Norway. I was readjusting to campus life and taking a math course for my education license and Selam was in the class to fulfill her graduation requirements. The class was too large so they asked us to split ourselves into two groups and Selam came right up to me and asked me which half I was going with. We became study partners and friends. I remember helping her through the course and in return found a great friend. We continued our friendship despite the fact she graduated that spring and moved to the cities. The following year when I graduated we met again in the cities and spent many evenings together with Purna and Cookie... Purna and Selam were inseparable from their freshman year and thus I became good friends with Purna as well.... Today I will be sad that Selam has passed but I will also remember all the fun we had together and that I was so thankful to have a friend when I came home.....
