Build new friendships now at home
I’m a 15-yearold girl and a sophomore in high school. Last year I went to school across the country. While I was there, I became best friends with this girl, “Amelia.” We did everything together, and Amelia even flew back here to visit my family when school ended and I had to go home.

A few weeks later I became ill and was hospitalized. My son’s widow looked after me all those weeks. She was known at the hospital by her name and also as my daughter-in-law.
One of my doctors, standing close to her and right next to my bed, asked for and was granted permission to ask her a personal question — “What happened to your husband?” Was it insensitive of him to ask that in my presence?
