Act of Friendship

          The rain pelted the sidewalks as miniature rivers flowed down the streets.  The clouds hung low and ominous over the bleak and dripping landscape.  Exiting the dorm, I carefully popped open my umbrella and entered the incessant downpour.  As I slogged my way through the puddles towards class, I passed two girls coming down the promenade towards me.  One was on crutches, and the other was holding an umbrella over her friend.  It was so impressive I stood there speechless as they passed.  The rain was unnoticed as the warmth and brightness of genuine friendship engulfed me.  It was a simple act of love, an outpouring of Christ's love shining through.  After asking their permission, I snapped the following photograph.


          The story continues however.  I posted it to Facebook and within a couple hours it had gone viral.  People were liking it and sharing it across their Facebook walls.  Why?  Because we love to uphold and promote a good deed done, an act of love extended, friendship displayed.

So why don't we see more of it?
