In this day and age of when people are disconnected from one another, indeed from their own Selves…and live in a society that operates and bases its decisions from a core of Fear…and when we live in neighborhoods that are no longer “neighbor-hoods”, where people have little or no interaction with the folks that live right next door to them…
this video is something to share with everyone you know….turn your speakers up and let your guard down.
“Sometimes, a hug is all what we need. Free hugs is a real life controversial story of Juan Mann, A man whos sole mission was to reach out and hug a stranger to brighten up their lives.
In this age of social disconnectivity and lack of human contact, the effects of the Free Hugs campaign became phenomenal.
As this symbol of human hope spread accross the city, police and officials ordered the Free Hugs campaign BANNED. What we then witness is the true spirit of humanity come together in what can only be described as awe inspiring.”
“THE ESSENTIAL FEATURE OF TRUE COMPASSION IS THAT IT IS UNIVERSAL AND NOT DISCRIMINATORY.”

it’s a sad state of our culture (and myself) that my first internal thought was, “what’s wrong wih the guy?”; but when you stop for a second, open your mind to it, you realize it is such a simply brilliant & profound idea
