I wondered about the folks at Tacoma's Freedom Fair giving 'Free Hugs.' After the hug, you got a little sticker that says you got a free hug. Some people were put off by it, but others ~ myself included decided "sure why not?"
I believe I got hugged by a pretty blonde teenage girl. I was curious about the web site listed on the sticker. So I checked it out & found out they were people from Life Center...a large church here in Tacoma that I attended for over 20 years.
When you stop & think about it....I wonder how many people face everyday with no one to give them a hug or even a smile? I'm sure there are many. I hope some of those folks took advantage of the free hugs that were graciously given, on Tacoma's waterfront Saturday.
