I can relate to Emma's article "The Summer Before" because I have had many summer memories with someone that I once called my best friend. Like Emma and her friend, we had many exciting summer activitives that are only memories now. We aren't close anymore, so all we have now is the memories we had made. Emma's article helped me remember all the fun summer memories my old friend and I have had. I would like to thank Emma for helping me remember all the fun summer memories and inspiring me to create more memories with other friends.
