Everyone needs a hug

I love this. Free hugs. Hugs should not have a cost and everyone needs one now and again. I was standing on the Korean Veterans Bridge on the 4th of July when the gentleman walked down the street with his sign. I got my hug and watched as he gave them out to others and then as he looked around carefully and cautiously when this young boy ran up to him to get his hug. I cried a little. But then I am a silly girl.

Free Hugs is a world wide movement made popular by this video:

I've watched this video like 47 times over the past 5 or 6 years and I cry every time! Then I think I should go start a free hugs campaign in Bagdhad, but I would be arrested immediately, especially as a Westerner and a female. Maybe Fort Campbell would be more realistic?

I love the free Hugs Movement and have blogged about it before. I have enjoyed seeing in and around Nashville. It is an awesome idea. You and I should head out and do it one day.
