Why we need a National Day of Hugging

Like you, I was tempted to roll my eyes when I first learned that January 21st has been declared a Nation Day of Hugging. Then, I thought back to all the times in which I really needed a hug, and felt a little less skeptical. Just yesterday, I tripped and skinned and my knee, something which hasn’t happened since I was a little child. A jogger happened to be passing by, and helped scoop me up with an outstretched hand. That brief second when our hands touched, was a calming one. The young man helped steady me with a hand on my shoulder, and asked me if I was alright. Suddenly, I felt slightly less frazzled by that unexpected ‘trip’, and was surprisingly comforted by the hand of a stranger.
