    Good Friends

    One of my best friends ever has been very unfortunate health-wise. Well, actually three have, but this is about one of them. She's one of the nicest and coolest people I've ever met; I've only heard her say bad things about people a total of 5 times ever. She really wouldn't hurt...

    It seems like I can wash

    and dry all the apples and get the most rotten one. Or sand all the sticks and get the shortest one. Or hunt the cow and receive no steak. Or work the hardest and get no break.

    They don't deserve it!

    Why should good people suffer?!? It's painful to watch a good person being put down and almost destroyed because of the overloading overwhelming bad things! I don't get it... good people work their socks off and put in every effort they got and they don't get what they deserve...

    Although I guess that the law of probability and averages gas so special dispensation to allow this in the fine print!!
