True Friendship

One of my students came to class today with a broken leg and bruised face... He had an accident a few weeks ago because a jackass car driver suddenly made a U-turn without signalling and my student who was riding a motorcycle didn't have the chance to hit the breaks fully...

Anyway, even though this student of mine was given weeks of day off, he came in today because there's a test and he wanted to do one other assessment so he can pass my subject this semester... He did the same for other subjects he's taking this semester...

What touched me (figuratively) is his friend's effort to help him come to all of those tests and presentations... His house is about 15 minutes away from Politeknik while his friend is staying in a rented house near Politeknik... His friend picks him up from his house and drives him to Politeknik and then sends him back home again for almost two weeks now... 

From the looks of his friend's face, he's happy to help... Like how Sam helps Frodo send the ring to Mordor... 

That made me think of how beautiful true friendship is... Besides family, close friends are the ones we can't really live without... It made me miss my own friends...
