Injecting a Little Love Into Your Day

Hello out there, fellow humans.

I don’t know what kind of a day you’re having but I wanted to share a music video with those of you feeling a bit on the downside today.

I absolutely adore this video. I don’t know how much of it is scripted (obviously, some of it was) but it does seem to capture some candid moments with random strangers. And so interesting to see the different angles of human nature revealed in such a simple gesture- a stranger asking for a hug.  You see people’s  different reactions of  hesitation, fear, refusal and even some resorting to violence. But you also  see many people reacting warmly, responding with a returned hug. Yes, this could have been the art of editing but I would like to think I’m less cynical than that.

I wonder, had it been me, how would I have reacted to a surly stranger approaching me and asking for a hug? Something to think about…..

Regardless, this video is a nice reminder that there are good people out there despite all the badness in the world. Helping our fellow humans, even with small gestures- that’s what it’s all about.

Have a beautiful day.

(PS-This video gets additional awesome points for starring the guy from “30 Rock!”)
