This I Believe Podcasts 10: Friendship

For the final This I Believe podcasts post, we hear about a topic very important to me: friendship. A normally happy, carefree topic, Hannah, Andreas, and Carolin share times in their lives when they encountered difficulties and friends came through for them or they realized the power of friendship, the power of a smile.

The Podcasts

“The Power of Friendship” by Hannah Vollmer — Click here to listen.

When she had to move from her hometown to go to college, Hannah felt utterly and completely alone. But hardly a day passed before her friends reminded her that they would always be there for her, and now she believes in the huge impact friends can have on your life.

“No More Truth and Ritalin” by Andreas Günzing — Click here to listen.

When his best friend was in a desperate situation, Andreas realized that the value he had placed on Truth did not matter in the end. Only a smile does.

“A Friend in Need is a Friend Indeed” by Carolin 1 — Click here to listen.

When her mother was away, Carolin had to admit her father to the hospital and watch his condition deteriorate. It was more than she could handle, but one phone call and Anna was there, being the best friend anyone could ask for at such a time.
