"All too often we fail to appreciate what we have until it’s gone. And
this shared global moment has illuminated how significant friends are to
day-to-day happiness. Science has been accumulating evidence that
friendship isn’t just critical for our happiness but our health and
longevity. Its presence or absence matters at every point in life, but
the cumulative effects of either show up most starkly in the later
stages of life. That is also the moment when demographics and health
concerns can conspire to make friendships harder to find or sustain. As
the world hits pause, it’s worth reminding ourselves why friendship is
more important now than ever."
