We are drawn to the people whom we are drawn to.
Some we teach, some we learn from, some we aid, some we recieve aid from, and some we love and cherish.
There are differences in politics and faith.......but we are all human kind. We need each other. We fulfill each other, we guide and comfort.................it is the humane way.
As a Christian, my Bible does not say, to not befriend, to not love, to not be kind........it says not to be led astray. Other faiths say a similar thing.
Can the friendship remain, without the forcing of one's will upon the other? That is the true question, to be decided upon by the members of that friendship. Some can survive, others will not prosper.
