We asked David a few questions about friendships and these were his responses:
1. What’s your favorite childhood memory with friends?
Playing music in a little school rock band
2. What quality do you admire most in your friends?
Loyalty and sense of adventure
3. How has a friend inspired you or made you a better person?
As a young adult, I had (and still have) a dear friend who allowed me to understand that it is possible to grow into the maturity of adulthood without losing a child-like sense of fun and curiosity.
