Maybe you’ve heard, maybe you haven’t. Either way it’s a nice story to read once, or multiple times. The reminder: blessings and love are all around you just need to keep your eyes open.
The story is about Juan Mann (and now many others all over the world) who in a moment of uncertainty created a cardboard sign that said “Free Hugs.” He went out on the street and held up the sign and although many people looked at him with fear, many others took him up on the offer. Now, after being banned and shunned, he’s made it perfectly acceptable to ask for hugs and is also well-known. He’s been on Oprah and has a kick-ass Web site, www.freehugscampaign.org
