Rabat - Have you ever had a friend to confide to your most secretive and intimate feelings with the belief that you are speaking to yourself? Have you ever had a consoling shoulder to cry on when people or life sadden you and fill you with anguish and sorrow? Have you ever had a faithful source of support, unconditional love, sympathy and empathy? Have you ever had someone beyond your kinship who always helps you up when you fall down, someone who puts your pieces together when you are broken up? If yes, you are lucky because you had a true friend indeed.
