Other Stuff – Free Hugs

free-hugs-1In 2004 in Sydney Australia, a man named Juan Mann (really) was feeling sad. He made a sign that said “Free Hugs” and started walking.

A young man who worked at the mall befriended him. The young man was a member of the group Sick Puppies (really). They wrote the song All the Same, and added video of Juan Mann’s story. They put the video together in one night. It is a beautiful piece of film-making. In just three and a half minutes, we’re told a story that encompasses two years.

It’s a beautiful, simple story that says a lot.

You’re welcome.
