Humanity is becoming more fearful and isolated. National Hugging Day™ can help. Healing and change CAN occur when we come together in love and acceptance as one human family through hugging.
CARO, MI, January 20, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Humanity is becoming more fearful and isolated. Hate, bigotry and violence is increasing. People are starting to believe there are no safe places to go, grow and thrive as community. We look at others with trepidation and wonder how we, our families, and friends can remain safe. "Thoughts & Prayers" for the victims and families of hate/violence are necessary and productive. Yet those actions often fall short as they can seem empty without faith, hope and something tangible with which to connect. What can be done?
This is where a National Hugging Day™ can help. Healing and change CAN occur when we come together in love and acceptance as one human family. Recognizing those who are making this difference through hugging:
Official Announcement: "THE MOST HUGGABLE PEOPLE OF 2020"
KEANON LOWE: Coach and security officer at Parkrose High School in Portland, Oregon. In summary, on May 17, 2019 Keanon was called into a school bathroom to locate a student who reportedly had a shotgun. The student exited the bathroom, pointed the shotgun at himself, an unsuccessfully tried to fire it off. Keanon took the shotgun, handed it off to another nearby adult, and began hugging the student for about 20 seconds while sharing words of comfort and hope. No one was injured.
MAXWELL AND FINNEGAN: Two toddler best friends, Maxwell and Finnegan, were recorded hugging each other on a Washington Heights New York City sidewalk. Maxwell's father Michael Cisneros noted, "Racism is taught. Hatred is taught. These two boys don't see anything different within each other. They love each other for who they are and that's exactly how it should be. We just want to raise loving, caring boys, and I think the world likes to see a little bit of hope."
