Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? It is often not a good thing for people to move to a new town or country because they lose their old friends. Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.

Over the last few decades, many people migrate from their hometowns for multiple reasons. I think it is a great opportunity to have the experience of living in somewhere else. Some believe when people leave their hometown, they would put numerous things behind and would miss many things like their friends. However,I think people can stay friends over long distances. I feel this way for two main reasons, which I will explore in the following essay. To begin with, I think thanks to technology people can communicate any time of day and night in any part of the globe. Now day technology has advanced a lot and almost everyone has a smartphone which capable to support video calls. It is a good way to stay connected to friends regardless of long-distance. For example, many of my childhood friends migrate to other countries, but this long-distance does not cause to break our friendship. We talk to each other on our smartphones almost every week about our days, like two intimate friends. Through these calls we even support each other’s feelings, empathize with each other, and consult about many things, these are what friendship is really about. Briefly, people can maintain their friends although they leave their hometown and live somewhere else. Furthermore, even if people lose their old friends, still they can find new friends in their new city. Actually, people may lose some of their friends by leaving their birth city, but it is not a big deal, people always have the opportunity to find new friends. For instance, I moved three times to three different towns because of my job, and in every place, I simply make new friends which were really nice and reliable. Despite the fact, that they are not someone whom I knew from my childhood but still I feel intimate with them and do not see any difference between them and my old friends. Subsequently, I think we always can take advantage of friends in spite of moving to another place or immigrating. In conclusion, I strongly believe that people can leave their country and still stay friend with their old friends or even make new friends, which are the same as old friends, in their new living town.
