A hug is something personal, something public, something powerful, yet simple. A hug is effortless, a hug can take the hearts pain away, a hug can make you smile when you feel you're having the worst day. A hug can say things you wouldn't dare say. Hugs remind us we need the warmth and comfort of others. A hug can hold us up when we feel like falling. A hug reassures the heart, mind, body, and soul that we will be ok.
