It wasn't that long ago that two college students started this on campus here in the States.

I am so very glad and moved that it's expanding hopefully throughout the world. This marvelous video can certainly aid that effort!

Thank you ever so much Aerogirl, for sharing!

So sorry to hear about your friend Nancy. It's all the more reason people should spread the love for one another.
Maybe I'll try this in New York when I go

Great! I don't know who was singing that, but you haven't heard "Hallelujah" until you've heard Canadian k.d. lang sing it - powerful!

A few years ago a group of college students in NYC tried this and were "scooped" up by the gendarmes

Watching this made me feel happy to be a compassionate person!

I think I will make a sign and go to the Quarter this weekend and offer free hugs
