I thought Stephanie S.'s article, "A Hair's Strength" was really emotional and thought provoking. When I read it, I saw Mary as a girl who really cared about her personal image more than her health. When she saw that she had lost her hair, it seemed real because what girl wants to go bald? The thing I admire the most, though, is your courage to shave off your own locks so your friend wouldn't have to face this problem alone. Your empathy for Mary was remarkable. Thank you, Stephanie for showing girls everywhere what true friendship really means.
