Free Hugs \( ^ __ ^ )/

Post by Midori Sento » Wed 06.27.2007 2:40 pm

I Just saw these videos and I felt that I had to share it with you all. It is heart warming ( to me) to see that with just a simple gesture, you can make people smile and feel better about their day. I hope you enjoy and smile when you see these videos.

That was really cool; I actually got teary eyed when watching it. I wish I could have been there; I love hugs. It's really beautiful how sometimes the simplest gestures (even just a smile) can really make a big difference in someone's day.

I saw that on youtube. I think it's really great that there are still people out who care for others. You don't see much of that these days, especially in New York :)

In middle school they wouldn't let girls hug and show public affection. I nearly got a detention! ;)

Look at my location. :P That's the most specific I'll go. But I never got to see my friends so whenever we see each other, we hug. And we still do. :P Lots of other people hug all of the time in school still too...
