What is it about a hug that is so important to a person. Is it the physical touch, emotional touch or the touch on the soul that tells you that you are important or all of the above? 

Science tells us a baby who is put in a crib, changed, fed but not touched or hugged...dies. Science also says we need to be giving and receiving at least 9 hugs a day, that it is beneficial for our health. 

We all need that one on one physical touch to tell us we are alive, to let us know we have worth and we are important.  A hug reaches the soul and makes it soar and leap and do a thousand somersaults. It makes us young. A hug releases stress and lets it ebb away. 

A hug lets us lean on another to cry when we need to. To hug back reassures the other person that you understand their pain and will be there for them.  A hug transcends a lot where words sometimes fail.

Hugs are important, so why is it so hard for people to hug each other.  Why has society put such boundaries on hugging? Why is it now so politically incorrect to do so that now you are seen as a stalker or a monster or molester. Enough already! A 4 year old child can't hug their friend and now ends up being expelled from daycare and labeled as a child molester? Really? Get a life people!  Enough of the PC crap!

Without hugs I don't think I could make it though the day and believe me I need lots and lots of them right now. 

Have you had your hug today? Better yet...Have you given a hug today?
