A classmate of mine sent me the link to this video. I was pretty touched and impressed by the actions of this man and the people within it.
Here is what my classmate wrote along with the link to the video:
I just wanted to share this link with you to view a video about a man named Juan Mann and his campaign for Free Hugs. It is a short video and reminds us how touch deprived we are in our society. Too often we get busy in our lives and forget the essence of being, whether it be with loved ones, family, friends, colleagues, or strangers. The more we connect technologically, the more distanced we seem to become. There's something special about having coffee/tea with a friend rather than just talking to them over the phone and a handwritten letter has much more meaning than an email. We busy ourselves with errands, work, and have multitudes of things to do. It is important to remember to slow down and just be in nature, with friends, or just present doing whatever you choose to do at the moment. Remember that there is only so much time in the day; we just have to schedule certain things into our lives if we so choose to. So reach out and give somebody a hug (with permission that is), a compliment or a smile in passing...the world could use a lot more love :)
