Free Hugs in Times Square, NYC

Monday, September 03, 2007

I did Free Hugs in Times Square, New York City, and it was the best experience of my life! I encourage everybody to do it, because you honestly gain so much from it. There are a few negative people who may not understand the concept and think you are a crazy creep, but to see dozens and dozens of people smile and laugh is just incredible.

I had one lady come up to me who was from Brazil and celebrating her wedding anniversary with her husband. She had tears in her eyes and said what I was doing was beautiful. I will never forget them for as long as I live.
Free Hugs is a brilliant idea, and the message you are sending people when you do it, whether they hug you or just laugh at you from the side, lasts a lifetime.
Keep it in mind. Everyone deserve a hug, to feel better :) Peace ~
