Hug Somebody ! Now !

                                                  tiger hug

Times are tough.

Realtors are retiring their licenses.

Foreclosures are skyrocketing.

The news is awful.


Television and radio programs are decadent.

Society is full of excessive self-indulgence and moral decay.

Music is trashy and offensive.

Schools have become medium security prisons.

Free speech to our children has become the right to use four letter words.

Maybe it's time hug to someone ?

When times are toughest these are also the times when we need to be touched; not in the head, but in the heart, with love and consideration from our family, our neighbors and our colleagues.

When we feel the most unlovable, a hug makes it better.

Human beings have been know to die from the lack of touch.

Hugging is also a way to demonstrate approval and the love and respect we have for each other. Hugging is a powerful medium because it makes us feel accepted and that others care about us.

Hugs make us feel better when we're sad.

A hug is also a wonderful thing to bestow when we congratulate someone.

We connect and send a message expressing a favourable opinion about our loved ones and friends.

Be good to your neighbors.

Each of us is a coin in God's bank we call planet earth.

When we do good we increase the net worth of God's investment, and make the world a better place for all mankind.

Hugs to all in Active Rain, everywhere. -David-

David - a lot of what you say is so true - I think if I had young kids today I would either home school them or send them to a christian school.  The public schools can be really bad - in Las Vegas there are reports of kids at school with guns almost everyday - teachers have no control - but then they are not allowed to mention God in school either - hmmmmmmmmmm wonder if the 2 are related.

David,  I love the picture but I'm not sure I would be brave enough to hug a tiger!  I will find something more tame to hug! :)

Parents have tried to get vouchers to assist with private school payment.  Sad because the courts have ruled against vouchers.  Its a tough time to be a parent.

David, great idea and you're correct times are difficult.  It is amazing how fast we have gotten to this point in our society.

Great reminder to hug the ones we love AND the ones we don't love so much!  We need to remember that we are all God's children and should love and respect each other.  Personally, I think the downfall of education and our society as a whole was the abolishment of capital punishment in schools.  That's when the teachers lost their authority and their control.  I'm not saying all kids need a spanking, or even that all bad kids need one.  I'm just saying that we need to have that option out there for our school teachers so the kids behave and can learn.  Because when we have no boundaries, we have no self-control.  And when we have no self-control, we have the decadent, immoral TV shows and movies and music that promote all sorts of self-destructive behavior because we don't love ourselves enough to stop it.  I'm talking about society as a whole, of course.  It's very frustrating being a parent right now.  I have two teenage daughters and a son.  It's a constant struggle to teach them good, moral, Christian behavior when they are constantly bombarded by the media with very different values.  And I don't censor them completely from the pop culture because they need to learn what is out there, how to deal with it and to censor themselves.  Thanks to David's blog, we have a reminder to love others and focus on the positive.

I had the feeling the tiger was making a decision of which part to eat first :)

David ~ Thanks so much for the great post. I am going to homeschool my daughter for her 10th grade year using a on-line accredited high school our state offers. Lots of reasons, but you touched on the big one - the whole prison atmosphere.

Tomorrow when i go to the gig I'm gonna hug our club owner. She's a great lady and i appreciate her a lot, so tomorrow a big hug for her. BTW - I did start to include the music in my blog, so far the response has been just what you said it would be, wonderful.
