Um verdadeiro amigo está perto nos bons e maus momentos, que eu seja e tenha amigos. A true friend is close in good and bad times, and I have to be friends.

I have a similar story: From small town, to college degrees, addiction, top level executive, to homeless, to ministry and now leading others to recovery.
