From what I've read so far, it is clear that Stacey Logan, Jeremy Simms, and TJ Avery, characters in the novel Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry by Mildred D. Taylor, have very different beliefs about friendship. First, Stacey Logan believes that friendship should mean something. For example, Stacey took a whipping for TJ because he was cheating. Next, Jeremy Simms shows the reader they don't have to be the same race to be friends. He would go walk with the Logan's than ride the bus.
For example, in the movie Freak and Max never go to daycare together which causes the parents to never know each other. Another point is, Max never got the ornithopter out of the tree in the beginning of the movie which made a symbol at the end of the movie for letting go of Freak and not a bond for their friendship in the beginning. Which causes the friendship to start off on the wrong foot. Also, in the movie Freak pays Max to go to the fireworks which changes the knowledge of some characters. In conclusion, Max's friendship with Kevin makes a huge difference in the plot because if one thing in their friendship changes it slows down the friendship or accelerates the friendship.

Clearly, because of the attention they get and because they talk about each other behind one another 's back.

In short, he was very controlling and clingy towards her which would always irritate me. Because Sam was my best friend, I accepted and tolerated him while they were dating. Like Appiah 's passive belief of acceptance, I did not try (too hard) to change her opinion of her current boyfriend. I continued to be friends with Sam, no matter how difficult it got due to her current relationship. They finally broke up, thankfully, but during the time

The need for friendship manifests itself throughout all civilizations of humanity, because humans are social creatures that learn and grow from interactions between each other.
