I found this video a couple months ago and thought it’s a good idea to share it with you guys today. Some of you may have seen it already, some not. It was viewed at least ~24 MILLION times, favored 125,000 times, and it received ~47,000 comments. Awesome.

In either case, it’s a good time to watch it (again.) I watched it several times myself already and my heart’s bumping each and every time.

If everyone would express so much love an care, how much of a better place would our world be?

Without further ado, here is the Free Hugs Campaign by Juan Mann aka PeaceOnEarth123

What a tremendous impact such a simple thing can have, huh…All the best to you and yours.

    Okay, I started out thinking that maybe my heart is just an ash-flecked cinder in my chest, because I don’t get why people do things like this — to make a point, to flatter themselves about their goodness, or to further some other goal. I still don’t get the POINT of it, but it made me smile despite my cynicism. I liked the warmth and trust that the participants brought to this. The little girl hugging him, the old ladies grinning about the embraces, and the silliness of the young adults leaping and skateboarding and almost knocking each other down was sweet. I hadn’t seen this vid before and enjoyed it. :o)

  2. Thanks, Marcus, I needed that right at this moment when I’m feeling a bit down and burnt-out. I am a soppy ol’ softie, and true to form I now have a tear-stained face, but am happy for the reminder of the joy that love brings into our lives. Peace and friendship;-)

  3. Hehe, Carolyn, I agree it’s kind of unusual, though I find it a “healthy” method to get out of our comfort zone… ;-)

    Hey RR, glad the video (or I?) could light up your day a bit. Yes, we need love. That’s how we came to the planet, right?
