hugs are contagious

Just got sent a great music video. It starts out slow and grows and grows and I was in tears at the end because of the warmth and simplicity of it. Here it is

The simple act of offering a hug can thaw the grumpiest of people. Reaching out to another. So simple, and yet there can be so much resistance and distrust at first. How did we get so remote and self-protective?

It’s worth the risk of rejection to get and to give a hug. It’s even better if the hug you give can be snugged in a pocket to remind the person often of how someone cares for them.

    I love the moment the first woman gave him a hug! Then the tears just kept coming throughout the rest of the video!
