Rhetorics: The bridge, friends, rain, family and love

What is better than bringing two worlds together, Bringing life and earth over a body of water? What is better than true friendship When it’s all about companionship? What is better than the scent of the rain When it brings the reign of droughts to end? What is better than the smiles of loved ones […]
