Think about this carefully. It happens all the time!You could have been there for someone. You could have been a part of someone's story (if the person lets you in of course). But you didn't.. You chose to be a by-stander. You even made some side remarks like "I don't know what the hell XYZ is doing" but.....when things start looking up for XYZ, you'll be the first to say you knew, took classes with and were best friends with XYZ. Why? Let's discuss. As always, please refrain from leaving rude comments on this "column".
