Free Hugs

March 14th, 2011 Posted in Uncategorized

Because hugs normally cost a lot of money? These girls in Union Square were holding up a sign saying “Free Hugs.” I’ve seen people do this on and off for years. There’s a very sweet free hugs video on YouTube. The girls were adorable, but why do people do this? I think perhaps the people holding up the signs are the ones who are actually in need of hugs.

    Mmmm . . . I’m thinking they’re recruiting for some religious sect.

    Maybe they have a lot of love to give and want to share that with people? 🙂

    A lot of people never get hugs! Hugs are scientifically proven to be good for you – they make you feel and they are good for your health.

    Having shared free hugs many times, I’ve hugged many people who are so thankful for that hug, people who’ve even cried or opened up to me because of that hug.

    Giving free hugs is a public service!

    My post came off more cynical than I intended! Those girls were really very sweet and charming, and you make good very points.
