Being a friend

h_alban_profile_125w.jpg

Those who have known a soldier throw himself between hostile fire to protect his friends will understand Alban. In 3rd or 4th century Britain (the date is uncertain) he had found someone and something so precious that he would die to keep him alive.

I think that the story of Alban inspired people for centuries because it infused and illuminated friendship with love, self-sacrifice, teamwork and equality.

See you on Monday.
