Free Hugs – Juan Mann

 on 


This sign made me wonder: what society we live in when people advertise they give free hugs away. And yes, there were plenty of takers. Passers by of different ages came up to this man and embraced Juan Mann. I’m not sure who benefited more from it but it left me with a mixed feeling. On one hand it is a very cordial act and on another it would indicate that there are a lot of lonely people out there not getting moral and emotional support from their close ones.

    Free hugs, how beautiful is to give love to your fellow humans with no specific reason but to conect with them, reaching out, to stop the alienation we have fallen into…

    An excellent action which promotes a more human society to live in a better place…

    I really like that fact that you took this at a time when almost no one, expet that guy with the glasses, it even looking at him. Not sure who to feel more sorry for, the person giving out free hugs or the passerbys who are too busy to even smile at him.
