We all need friends in life. Of course, we see some more than others, and that is also too little sometimes, but a true friend will always be there for you – no matter what.
Some friends are friends for life.
Which is why Grandmother Amelia broke down when no one came to her 9-year-old grandson’s birthday party even though she invited 12 of his friends.
But this story had a twist. A few days later, the postman arrived at Gerald Hamilton’s house with a large bag.
Gerald was expecting his ninth birthday. Together with his mother he made and sent invitations to his party. But he had no idea that the day that was supposed to be a happy one would end up sadly for him.
No one came
Although Gerald invited 12 friends, none came to his party.
“Nobody came”, said Grandma Amelia. “He’s just a kid who wants to play with friends”.
When asked how he felt on the day of the party, Gerald replied: “Sad”.
When Gerald was young he underwent several brain operations. As a result, he learns and absorbs things more slowly than his classmates. But for Amelia it is just makes him unique.
Showered with gifts
When no one came to her grandson’s birthday party Amelia was so angry that she wrote a long Facebook post about this.
She had no idea that her words would be shared by so many people, leading to a plot twist and a change in the whole story.
